I attempt to create a new WPF project but the design window never populates and appears to hang.ÃÂ CPU usage for devenv.exe starts looping around 50% usage.ÃÂ I can close the project with no problems.ÃÂ I disconnect the USB VGA adapter and the WPF project will load and save with no issues.ÃÂ Re-connect the adapter and problem returns withÃÂ any new orÃÂ current project that was just working.ÃÂ I've had this same problem on a different modelÃÂ laptop, Dell 630ÃÂ I believe, as well with a physically different adapter but same model.
I've been experiencing this problem for about a year and have since gone to a different laptop and new adapter drivers and the issue persists after a fresh install of the O/S,ÃÂ VS2008ÃÂ with SP1.ÃÂ Any recommendations besides not using the adapter, it's pretty integral to other job duties that I have to perform and the issue precludes me from being able to develop in the WPF environment.
CurrentlyÃÂ using a laptop DELL Latitude E6400ÃÂ 4 Gig memory with 2 external monitors in which one connects toÃÂ the VGA port and the other connects to a USB VGA adapter (Tritton SEE2 UV100) and have installed their latest drivers.
