If I try to open SQL files in Visual Studio 2010 on Win7 x64, VS just hangs and I have to kille the process. This is happening with both local files and files on TFS.

I have no problem with opening SQL files in VS2012 on the same PC. What could be causing the problem?

UPD: Tested to open both local SQL files and files on TFS, VS hanging in both cases.

Here is the version information for VS2010. enter image description here

  • Could it be the size of the files?

  • Was this previously working and is now not working or have you never been able to open SQL files in VS2010? Nov 21, 2013 at 14:39
  • @Richard It was working in WinXP. Since I've got Win7, it stopped working.

  • @m4573r I doubt it. It happens with files of different sizes. As I said, the same files are opened in VS2012 with no problem.
