VisualStudio 2013 freezes

    VisualStudio 2013 freezes

    Hello,

     I have this unpleasant problem: VS2013 from time to time, e.g. every 10 min or so, freezes. If I try to type something in the editor it shows the infamous message "VisualStudio is busy..." I googled the problem and they were saying that usually this is caused by an extension. By the method of elimination I narrowed it down to GhostDoc. As soon as I uninstalled it - it stopped and when I installed it back - it started again. Have you seen the problem before? Any remedies you could suggest? I love the plugin, purchased the pro and constantly used it but now I cannot.

    Thanks

    Val

    Hi Val,

    (I'm assuming you are using the latest build 4.9.14093)

    In our experience these are specific to the user setup or user project code.

    We will be happy to work with you and troubleshoot the issue you are experiencing. We will your GhostDoc log files for troubleshooting. You will find them in <My Documents>\SubMain\GhostDoc {Edition} for VSxxxx\*.log 

    Please email them to us at support at submain dot com (don't post it here - this is a public forum)

    Thanks!


    Thank you,

    Hi Serge,

    I have exactly the same problem, where my VS editor freezes regularly and all tests seem to point towards an issue with GhostDoc. May I also email my logs?

    Thanks,

    I have the same issue with the last few versions of GhostDoc. It seems to point to this on examining the log file:

    Log Message (20/04/2015 12:23:42) : DocumentThisCommandImplementation->Run...
    Log Message (20/04/2015 12:23:42) : LoadSolutionReferences: start...
    Log Message (20/04/2015 12:23:50) : LoadSolutionReferences: finished.

    The very first time I load the solution into VS2013 Community Edition (the same as Kaine's above who I work with) I get a 10 second freeze the first time I do ctrl-shift-D to comment a function. After that it is fine until I have to reload the solution again. Note that our solution is very large (over 200 projects) but we didn't used to get this issue with older GhostDoc versions.

    Re: VisualStudio 2013 freezes

    Hello Kaine, Symo,

    The issue you are describing is related to how GhostDoc works - the first time you press Ctrl-Shift-D, it queries all solution references - they are needed to properly identify inherited comments.

    In your case, 200 projects - as you understand that's quite a lot of references to traverse...

    In the older versions, GhostDoc relied on Visual Studio services for that information, but those are had issues which resulted in the bugs filed for GhostDoc and complaints that GhostDoc doesn't see inherited comments in some cases. So we implemented our own service to get GhsotDoc to work correctly.

    We are discussing how we can get this done with the least impact to users.

    Thanks!

    Re: VisualStudio 2013 freezes

    My .02 would be that it is much better to be fast than accurate.  As it is the use of GhostDoc is destroying my flow.  I have been an ardent support for the tool since I first used in with VS2010 and have introduced its usage across my team.  That being said it is getting to the point where I do not want to use what is arguably one of the best features.  Either I close and reopen VS more often that I realize or the hit occurs more than the first time Document This is engaged.  Perhaps some heuristics can be applied such as solutions with more than 100 projects use the native VS symbol service whereas, smaller projects can use yall's more accurate service or just allow the user to opt for which is more important to them.  Otherwise, love the product!

    Re: VisualStudio 2013 freezes

    In the upcoming v5 we are adding an option (by solution) to bypass looking for the inherited comments - you'd be able to define that for the large projects and avoid having to wait for it first time delay.

    Would that do for everyone?

    Re: VisualStudio 2013 freezes

    Hi Serge, 

    We are experiencing the same exact problem on VS 2015 Enterprise. Our solutions are large, around 60-70 projects each. 

    We develop on pretty fast workstations, however it still takes 60+ seconds on the first usage of Ctrl+Shift+D.

    This is a huge hindrance for us, and is leading us to look for alternatives.

    When do you guys plan to release v5? Is there a beta program we can participate in? If that is not on the horizon, is there anything else you can offer to help shorten the delay?

    Thanks.
