Do you suffer from VSSS (Visual Studio Suckiness Syndrome)? There’s help. If you’ve noticed your devenv.exe process swelling up to around 2gb and then getting really slow, buggy and freezing up, try a few things:
- Disable extensions or 3rd party addons that don’t manage their memory well. VS doesn’t use any process isolation for hosting these addons which means if your vendor’s product doesn’t behave well, VS won’t. Telerik’s JustCode turned out to be a big offender for me.
- Enable more user mode memory for VS using instructions detailed here.
Hopefully this will help you keep the sanity -- happy coding!
