I have *one* solution on *one* machine on which CodeRush runs slow.
So slow it’s painful and I was forced to unload (not uninstall … don’t be daft) CodeRush.
This is also painful, but in my view there was simply no alternative.
Seriously I’ll happily explain if it’s really needed, but no… Resharper is not, for me, a valid alternative.
This has been the case for nearly 2 weeks. This problem as I say, affects only a single solution and not all files in it… But enough of them to cause me some serious headaches.
Yesterday I cured it. [Cue Choir of angels… lights from heaven … General merriment from all]
How did I do this.. Well to cut an already long story short…
I *un*installed StyleCop 126.96.36.199, restarted Studio and loaded my solution
The effect was immediate… like a bolt of lightning turning night into day. however unlike a bolt of lightning, the effect was permanent. This offending solution has now been made into CodeRush’s whipping boy and frankly my entire week is looking up :D
I have handed support all the information I can find which might help eliminate this issue and I’m sure they’ll soon find out what’s going on…
In the mean time I’m writing this post in the hopes that others who might have tried CodeRush and found it to be slow (I’m sure there aren’t that many :D) might find this or be pointed at it by colleagues and perhaps give it another spin with this in mind.
