Resharper freezes VS2017


I have one solution that freezes when I load it in VS2017 with Resharper. This is a hard freeze, need to use Task Manager to shut down VS2017.

If I disable Resharper it loads OK.


It is fixed: After a vs2017 update this solution didn't freeze but Resharper displayed a warning message that an older version of vs2017 has been detected. Then after the latest Resharper update 2017.1.1 all is good again.


Hello David,

Microsoft fixed a deadlock during solution loading with ReSharper enabled in Visual Studio 2017 update 1 (Race condition in components loading). And at the same time this update broke MSTest API, that's why you got that message And indeed, we fixed that in ReSharper 2017.1.1 bugfix release



Thanks for the explanation, all good now.

If I open the sln with resharper enabled it hangs forever and I need to kill VS.

If I first suspend resharper then open the sln, everything is fine...


Hello @JM Alfonsi!


Could you please try to install the latest ReSharper 2017.2 EAP build - and check if the problem is still reproduced?

Thank you.


I am having this issue as well. June 26, 2019

Visual Studio hangs. (Not Responding) I have to use task manger to kill the process. It happens when resharper is enabled. Disabling resharper fixes the issue.

I tried clearing the cache but that didn't work either.
