SP21 - Visual studio 2017 loading very slow

After installing SP21, visual studio 2017 solution containing crystal reports is very long to load, it takes a lot of time (30 seconds) to load every project referencing crystal reports assemblies.

(If I uninstall CRVS, solution loading is normal)

Any advice ?

    Hi All,

    R&D has found the cause of the problem and fixed it.

    We have released a new dll for SP 22 only to fix this issue.

    Go here to get the info and new crvs package dll:

    A big Thank You to Scott Pearce and Mike Sheen for working with our Developer for a fix...

    Hi Yannick,

    Thanks for posting here rather than the WIKI.

    Are you seeing the delay in Visual Studio or in Release Mode?

    Home many projects are you loading at one time?

    Obviously if you remove the runtime it's going to speed up.

    What CR assemblies are you loading in your project?

    Did you install the EXE on your Development PC only and no the runtime MSI packages?

    If it's on your DEV PC what is the problem waiting a few more seconds?

    Chiming in to say both me and another developer at my workplace are experiencing the same issue, enabling lightweight solution load on your solution can fix this issue for the time being but its not exactly ideal.

    R&D said they changed the way CR integrates into VS 2017 and will look into it.

    I'll update when I find out more.

    Hello,

    thanks a lot for your answer:

    Are you seeing the delay in Visual Studio or in Release Mode?

    => In Visual Studio

    Home many projects are you loading at one time?

    => A lot of ! (145 projects) . But only 4 projects references crystal reports assemblies.

    Obviously if you remove the runtime it's going to speed up.

    => The runtime is not installed on my development machine

    What CR assemblies are you loading in your project?

    =>

    Did you install the EXE on your Development PC only and no the runtime MSI packages?

    => I extract the 'CRforVS_13_0_21.exe', then I execute the 'setup.exe' with 'Run as administrator' option

    If it's on your DEV PC what is the problem waiting a few more seconds?

    => I often need to change solution and restart it, so in a day, it can take a lot of time.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Yannick

    I'm also experiencing this issue in Visual Studio 2017 since I updated to the latest 13.0.21.
    Let me make is clear: It is adding about 30 seconds PER PROJECT.

    I have close to 75 projects in my solution, so 30ish seconds per project takes quite a while to load. I'm including only CD.CR.Engine.dll, CD.ReportSource.dll, and CD.Shared.dll in one project in the solution.

    My coworker has the same set up except he's on Visual Studio 2015 and experiences no delay at all. Solution boots up super quick.

    Hi Guys,

    What Framework are you using?

    In your app.config file did you remove the LegacyMode from the Startup Tag?
