I downloaded Visual C++ 2010 express and am shocked at how completely slow/unusable it is. I have a pretty beefy computer (4 gigs ram, 3.2ghz dual core, Radeon hd4890) and I literally cannot even type when I have opened up a solution. To even see the code in the first place after opening up a .cpp I have to minimize visual c++ and maximize it again to "refresh" it. Anyone have similar problems to this or know how to fix it? 2008 worked like a charm for me but I would really like to get 2010 working for class. Thanks!
Edit further info:
-Sometimes if i restart my computer enough I can boot up VS2010 and then it seems to work fine. It is completely random though.
-My cpu/ram usage seems fine having VS open -All drivers/bios up to date
If anyone needs any further diagnostic information from me to help diagnose the problem ill get it ASAP.
Hmmm new update... messing around in options->environment->general there are three boxes for "Automatically adjust visual experience based on client performance", "enable rich client visual experience" and "use hardware acceleration if available"." I unchecked all of them and it seems to be working fine now. Does anyone know what these options really mean and the advantages/disadvantages to turning them off.
