Title: vs freezed when refresh project files
Post by: ahkevin on April 20, 2021, 02:54:47 am
OS: Windows 10 x64
SlickEdit Pro 2020 (v25.0.1.0 64-bit)  with  hotfix_se2501_6_cumulative.zip (Revision: 6)

Project files > 10K

Project->Project Properties->refresh, then vs lose response until the whole operation complete.
Depending on the number of the file, it takes some minutes, sometimes above 10 minutes.

Close the Projects tool window and try doing a refresh. I'm guessing a bit but it's the only synchronous operation I can think that could take a while.

I never used Projects tool window.

It doesn't matter whether you are using the Project tool window. If it's open (and it is open in the default tool window layout), it has to be refreshed with the project files. Please close it and try refreshing your files.

Is your workspace a Visual Studio solution file? Just wondering because that can be slower. For v26, working with Visual Studio solution files will be faster.

So I've always hated how long it takes vs to reload when switching workspaces. I've always had the Projects tool docked. Usually switching workspaces is a coffee break as it's usually a 4-8 minute unresponsive program time. I tried closing the Projects tool after reading this and it changed to 3-4 seconds to load another workspace. :( Not great for my coffee addiction but... is there work being done to fix this?

There have been some improvements made for v26 especially for Visual Studio solutions. For v26, switching to a Visual Studio solution will be much faster.

Are you opening a Visual studio solution? In this case, the .vpw file is just a reference to the .sln file.

My project is not Visual Studio; just "Other C/C++". It is entirely built with wildcards though, and at least 30k files.

Please try v26 beta when it's available. I'll try to remember to ping this thread when the v26 beta is available. A lot of work has been done to improve wildcard and project tool window performance.
