VS 2010 Pro is slow

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I was wondering if anybody else is finding VS 2010 extremely slow loading a solution - and it pretty much renders the rest of the machine useless until loaded. Everything is slowed to a halt.

I upgraded from VS 2005 - now I think I made a terrible mistake. I cannot afford to try and load 2 solutions simultaneously.

The machine is a Core2 Duo E8400, 3GB of RAM, WinXP SP3. Max I can go to is 4GB. Would upgrading to a 64-bit OS really be worth it (actually only to get 8GB of RAM)?

I'm hoping someone else has found a solution to this particular problem.

SharePoint 2010, First View of documents very slow


I am using Document Center, I have PDF, Word and text files. On my first initial load of a PDF or Text file is very slow. If I wait the 30 seconds for the text or PDF to show, all the next views are fast.

I do not have issues with Word and Excel. Those seam to load via my local office program. I have been using IE7, Firefox 3.0 and Chrome. Plus multiple machines.

I have been researching and researching on google and could only find the "Detect Proxy settings" uncheck and the make page "Permissive". Those fixes did not work for me.

Please help. Thanks in Advance.

SharePoint 2010 Intranet Site is Slow in the Morning

We tried with warn up script as well, but we are not be bale to yet find a reason able solution to make it quicker..

Our sharepoint server is Virtual machine with 64 bit windows server 2008 R2 edition enterprise and sharepoint 2010 installed on it..   

Anyone else had similer kind of problem or know how to fix it ??

Viewing Video's in Sharepoint 2010--Will it slow down the performance for the end users?


I understand how to upload files to the media web part and creating an asset library, however; i'm trying to figure out where these files are being stored and the performance of the users.  I read the digital asset management library information on technet and couldn't find the exact answer i'm looking for. 

So, here's my question:  If I want to upload 10 videos to the asset library, they each may have around 50mb or less for the file size, and we want 200 plus users to access it, will this affect the performance of when these users hit the site?  We want to display the video's without having to buy a media server.  And the main question that will be asked is, who will host the content?  And, where is it residing?  My guess is that tt will be hosted in SP 2010.

I'm trying to incorporate a new intranet portal site for my company that will have a video to be played on the home page of the intranet site and the links will be located on the left and right side of the page with the video webpart in the center.  Will using the Blob cache and bit throttling be sufficient for this request?  I think it will be, I just want to make sure before we role this out.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.



Search Server 2010 slow crawls on CMS 2.0

My client is crawling a CMS 2.0 installation with SharePoint Search Server 2010 and we are noticing that crawls on this content source for roughly 250K pages can take anywhere between 1-3 days.  As a comparison, our WSS 3.0 farm, with roughly 150K items, finishes a full crawl in slightly under 7 hours.

I am trying to troubleshoot why the CMS crawl is taking so long.  We have a small farm configuration with a dedicated DB server (which is a cental server for all applications requiring databases organization wide), a single crawl server hosting CA and the crawler component and two WFE/query servers that have one index partition spread over both of them.  All servers are virtualized Windows 2008 SP2 64-bit instances.

The CPU on the crawl server is pinned at 100% during crawls, usually consumed between various msdmn.exe processes and the mssearch.exe process.  The crawl server consistently uses roughly 3GB of the 4GB of allocated memory (I have advised them to at least double the amout of RAM, though Microsoft's recommendation of 16 GB per server would be the best practice.  This request is in process and it takes the organization a couple of weeks to fulfill any hardware upgrade requests!).

Here are some steps I have taken in an attempt to alleviate the slowdown

nlb 2008 r2 slow down sharepoint 2010


i have 2 web front end running windows NLB,

found that the performance is very slow for uploading files.

so quickly i deleted the nlb cluster and use only 1 web front the performance is back to normal

on nlb, uploading a 3 mb files takes a few  minutes

on single web front end, upload the same file takes only a few seconds.

is there a bug for windows 2008 r2 nlb?




I am running sharepoint 2010, windows 2008 r2, sql 2008 r2.

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

Architecture Tools in VSTS 2010

Designing new functionality on existing applications can be daunting. There are always differences between the original design and the current implementation.

The new Architecture tools within Visual Studio Team System 2010 help you understand the application you have, design new functionality you need, and validate that your design and your implementation do not deviate.

VB and C# enhancements in VS 2010

In Visual Studio 2010, we've made several enhancements to our two most popular languages, Visual Basic and C#, to give programmers all the tools they need to build great software no matter which language they prefer.

The Visual Basic team focused on adding productivity features to the language so developers can get more done in fewer lines of code. The most common customer request for Visual Basic is to remove the underscore ("_") character when breaking a code statement across multiple lines in most cases. Visual Basic 10 introduces implicit line continuation, which removes the need for the underscore character in most cases.

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

VS 2010 and .NET 4 Series

VS 2010 and .NET 4 are the next major releases of our developer tools and framework. Together they contain a ton of new functionality and improvements that I think you'll really like, and which make building applications of all types easier, faster and better. The improvements range from nice small tweaks to major, major enhancements - and can be found across the .NET Framework, the languages, and the IDE.

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.
