I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but it is getting pretty annoying.
I have a VS2005 project that is version controlled with VSS. When I open the project, it takes up to 4 or 5 minutes to open. This time I did a little digging, and see that the devenv.exe CPU is at from 15 to 40%. Watch the network, and I see that it is very busy reading data. Nothing else going on, it is definitely VS2005... Most likely going to my VSS server.
By the time the project finally opens, it has used 3.5 minutes of CPU, and received over 300MB over the LAN, and sent over 50MB.
The entire directory tree of this project, including the dll's and exe's that are not version controlled, is only a little over 10MB.
Anybody else ever see such a problem? Any suggestions? I'm stumped...
If you look in the feedback, you'll see someone suggested turning off AntiVirus. I don't know why VS2005 / VSS has this problem, while earlier versions seem just fine with the AntiVirus turned on, but sure enough, I turned off Norton's "Auto-Protect" temporarily, and my 5 minute load came down to about 30 or 40 seconds.
