"We've noticed that extension 'ReSharper Ultimate' is slowing Visual Studio" message

In case you get this


and this


or that


We have no idea how MS team counts that number of seconds in VS performance monitor. Sometimes it complains about its Error List  https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/16041/vs-2017-rc-weve-noticed-that-a-tool-window-error-l.html or something else.

If you notice a real performance problem apart from that message, first of all, please try following this guide https://www.jetbrains.com/help/resharper/Speeding_Up_ReSharper.html

If those steps did not help and you still experience the performance problem, please follow https://resharper-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207243205 article to send us a perf snapshot.


You don't deny the fact that the IDE freezes when it boots up, though, right?

Just an observation.


It gets old having to manually close the major yellow banner across the top, but indeed, performance isn't truly affected. 

I would follow your guide for performance, but it explicitly means I must disable features that I would rather not disable.
Guess it's something to deal with like many things in life. I refuse to go back to Visual Studio without resharper. So if I must toil with a yellow banner, so be it..

There, I fixed it


I'm afraid that in my experience R# creates significant slowdown during loading of large projects and even worse during debugging, especially when compared to VAX, I really hope this can be improved upon.


I also get this warning from Visual Studio (so that people googling it can find this page).

Extension 'JetBrains ReSharper Ultimate 2017.3.3 11.0' likely caused 7 seconds of unresponsiveness. Disabling it may improve your experience.


I also get this message every single time I open Visual Studio 2017. And sure, I can have it stop showing the message. (By the way, mine says it cause 11 seconds of unresponsiveness.) But it is annoying that it takes so long to start up!

And like ensemblebd, I have reviewed the Performance Guide that Resharper keeps recommending I use to improve performance, but then why use Resharper at all? Most of the stuff it recommends to disable is stuff I want to use! If I disabled all of the preferences affecting performance that it recommended, then I might as well not even start up Resharper and just use the built-in VS enhancements that they have made. I am about ready to completely disable R# for a day and see how performance is without it!


The performance is so terrible, I have found integrated roslyn VS2017 extensions to pretty much replace all of resharper, at least for the actions and functions my team uses. We all immediately noticed VS2017 is super responsive and usable again. So far that is 10 of us moving off of reshaper and cancelling subscriptions. I will say took me about 2 weeks to get used to the differences, but with the latest release of VS2017 and the reshaper keyboard mapping we are fully joy.
