Visual Studio 2010 SP1 Performance Issues After Upgrade

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JQuery


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

Issues with Visual Studio 2010 editor


hi all,

I am having a weird problem with VS 2010. I am using the premium edition.

It seems that none of the asp controls <asp:..> tag are recognized by the editor. I keep getting a green underline under each control name. To check this, I have created a brand new web site targeting .NET framework 4.0 and even in the auto-generated pages, none of the asp controls is recognized. I am also unable to see the properties of any control if I click inside the tag (at an attribute). All I get is the ID of the button and the tag <HTML ELEMENT>! Furthermore, when I drop an ASP control from the toolbox, the attribute "ID" is not generated. Only when I switch to the design view that I can get to see the properties of the control and the ID is set automatically. The message for the green underline says: Element 'Button' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web Site, or the web.config file is missing.

Does anyone know what is going on?

Improving the Start-up Performance of the WPF and Silverlight Designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2


IMPORTANT NOTE: the Beta and Release Candidate builds of Visual Studio 2010 are now obsolete, since Visual Studio 2010 has now released to manufacturing.

See http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/en-us/download


NOTE: The Release Candidate and RTM builds of Visual Studio 2010 does not need this configuration change

This post is to let you know about a configuration change (registry switch) which you can use to improve the startup performance of the WPF and Silverlight Designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.

1. Since this was a late-breaking change, you may experience some instability or increased Virtual Memory usage in some Visual Studio scenarios when using it. If you see such instabilities, please try removing the configuration change, and let us know about the problem you saw (you can do this by replying to this posting or by raising a bug on Connect).

2. You should only make this configuration change if you are a regular user of the WPF and Silverlight Designer, and are experiencing poor performance with it.

3. This configu

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

This is a big deal. This isn't ".NET 3.6" - there are a lot of improvements of .NET 4, and it's not just "pile on a bunch of features so you get overwhelmed." I've been working with and talking to many of the teams involved and even though it's a cheesy thing to say, this is a really customer-focused release.

ASP 4 - Whirlwind Tour around .NET 4 (and Visual Studio 2010) Beta 1

There's a lot of stuff that's new and added in .NET 4, but not in that "overwhelming-I-need-to-relearn-everything" way. More in that, "oh, this is way easier/simpler now" way. Like, moving data around with ADO.NET DataServices is easy, binding with client templates is easy, there's F# if you need it, the "dynamic" keyword if you need it, Silverlight's already installed, oh, and the parallel stuff will freak you out, but in a good way.

About Dynamic Data in Visual Studio 2010 / .NET 4



Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :


  • EnableDynamicData method which enables Dynamic Data features in existing ASP.NET applications and DataSource controls
  • A new QueryExtender control, contained in the sample projects to simplify common data filtering operations. It supports a rich ASP.NET declarative query syntax that makes it easy to do things like search data for text or have filters based on ranges
  • A new Dynamic Data filter model that enables the developers to apply templates to pages just like field templates (including user defined filters)
  • New field templates of Email, URL and Enum columns
  • Support for inheritance in Entity Framework and Linq to SQL
  • Support for many to many relationships in Entity Framework
  • New Entity Templates which allow fine control over how an object is displayed and edited
  • DynamicHyperLink control for building links to tables and actions
  • Declarative support for D
