After installing NCrunch VS2010 won't start. CPU shoots up to 50% for the devenv.exe process but it just stays as a background process.


Below are VS details after uninstalling NCrunch:

Hi Mhexrixon,

Thanks for posting these details. My gut feel would be that there is some kind of package load clash between NCrunch and one of the tools you've described above. This could be quite a tough issue to troubleshoot.

Is there anything that could be considered unusual about the system you're running on?

Also ... when VS fails to load, what is the exact symptom that you get? Are there any parts of the IDE that become visible? Do you have access to any part of the IDE and its UI before it hangs?

I hate the system I am running it on but it's pretty basic HP desktop.

What happens is that VS flash screen about it loading pops up but the actual application never loads. It just starts the process and the process consumes about 50% cpu and then it goes on forever.

I have some ideas on things to try in order to get more information about the failure, if you are willing to give them a try :)

1. Try running Visual Studio with logging enabled, for example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /log c:\output\vslog.log
The contents of this log file could give us useful information about where the system is hanging during load. If you also try this with NCrunch uninstalled, it will give us a log file to compare against.

2. If you have Visual Studio 2008 installed, try installing and running NCrunch on this. Doing so could help me narrow down the code involved.

3. My guess from the 50% CPU is that you have 2 CPUs on this machine? Try loading up Visual Studio while your machine is under a heavy load ... maybe try kicking up a couple of instances at the same time. If the issue is caused by a subtle race condition this may help to kick it aside and let you into the IDE (although this is hardly a fix, it would give some useful information).

4. If you're willing to go through the pain of uninstalling/installing things, I'd be interested to know if removing any of your other VS add-ins make any difference in this issue.

If none of this turns up anything useful, I may see if I can introduce some extra diagnostic code in the next beta release to help figure out what's going on.
