Recently I switched from VS 2013 to VS 2017.
Now GUI freeze appears when opening the project for about 2 minutes.
I tried:
- unchecking parse all files when opening the Project
- unchecking Enumerate project reference thoroughly
- installing the newest VA version

Still freezes

Perhaps somebody can give me an advice what to do next, please.

Kind regards,

Kind regards, MK_MGC

Which language or languages are these projects using? I am wondering if this is managed, unmanaged or a mixture of both.

If you disable VA in the dialog:

IDE tools menu -> Extensions and Updates...

which will require an IDE restart, does this fix the problem? I just want to confirm that VA is a factor here.

If VA is a factor, with all instances of the IDE closed, can you please turn on VA logging, by setting the registry flag:

HKCU\Software\Whole Tomato\Logging = 1

as described here, and then load the IDE normally. This should generate VA log files, which will hopefully give us some information about what is happening here. Logging, and the log files generated, is explained here:


Can you then please email me the logs, at: support@wholetomato.com
including this thread URL or ID, so I can easily match up the email.

Out of interest, how many files do you have in your solution?

If you open VA's Open File in Solution dialog (Alt-Shift-O) the title bar contains two numbers. The first number is the number of files currently listed, which changes as you filter the list. The second number is the total number of files in the list, which is normally the number of files in your solution. What is this second number?

Hi Feline,

The language is C++ unmanaged.
Disabling VA in IDE tools menu -> Extensions and Updates fixes the problem
The number of files is 20469.

I've sent the log files to at: support@wholetomato.com
