Having this problem with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate where it hangs when trying to open any file.
This is a very specific setup, so I don't even know where to start searching for a solution. I'll try and specify as much information as possible:
- Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate
- Windows XP Professional SP3
- Using some kind of VPN connection to access the company's servers
- Connected to Team Foundation Server for source control
Syncing the solution works just fine. Even checking out a file for edit seems to work. But when trying to open a file (even one previously checked out for editing), Visual Studio just hangs there. Trying to do stuff in it makes the following message appear as a popup notification in the Windows taskbar:
Microsoft Visual Studio is waiting for an internal operation to complete. If you regularly encounter this delay during normal usage, please report this problem to Microsoft.
Any idea of what the problem might be? Thanks in advance.
UPDATE After much trial an error, it seems to be possible opening some files by doing "Open with..." from Windows explorer, BUT ONLY when a solution is not open in VS already.
