Well, the startup time problem is still there. This time I looked at Task
Manager to see what was going on.
Sure enough, MSDEV.EXE is plugging away, but what surprised me is that
MCSHIELD.EXE (virus scan software) was going even more crazy. Apparently
whatever Resharper 2.0 is doing at startup is driving my virus scanner nuts
in a way that Resharper 1.5 did not.
Since I work in an environment where I cannot control the virus scanner
(it's administered by our IT departement, and even if I do kill the process,
it just restarts soon thereafter), I sure hope that you guys can figure out
how to avoid putting my virus scanner into hyperactive mode in some future
version. It takes over a minute from clicking on the visual studio launch
icon until I get a blank open IDE window. That's a long time to stare at a
I hope this information helps!
