I was unhappy with VS 2010 performance on my machine:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
System Type X86-based PC
Processor x86 Family 6 Model 37 Stepping 5 GenuineIntel ~2393 Mhz
Total Physical Memory 4,096.00 MB
Graphics: Intel HD graphics, internal 128mb
Basically the UI kept hanging when closing tabs on the workspace or under general
navigation of UI.
I eventually found this fix:
which suggested turning off hardware rendering and it worked a treat.
General UI responsiveness was massively improved.
I see that this was recognised and VS comes with SW rendering as standard now for SP1 on XP.
However the upgrade to SP1 seems to have brought this problem back even though hardware rendering is disabled!
Has anyone else noticed this behaviour?
Is there any suggestions?
Here is my info from VS:
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010
Version 10.0.40219.1 SP1Rel
Microsoft .NET Framework
Version 4.0.30319 SP1Rel
Installed Version: Premium
