Build 202 startup time

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
splash-screen :)

I hope this information helps!

Hello Paul,

do I understand correctly that you have to wait for a minute when you
just run VS without opening a solution? What version of VS you're using?

Yes, you understand correctly. I have VS.Net 2003 configured to open with
no solution (because I use several different ones during the day). With
Resharper 1.5 installed, start-up time is on the order of "under 4 seconds".
With Resharper 2.0 installed, start-up time is on the order of 60-70
seconds. At that point, I can then open a solution.

Some more data... it's not JUST the virus scanner causing the delay. I
managed to get the On-Access auto-scanning turned off, and start-up time is
still over 22 seconds. That's time just staring at the splash screen,
before the empty dev environment window displays.

Hello Paul,

on my dev machine, VS 2003 with ReSharper starts within 10-15 secs. The start-up
time
for ReSharper 2.0 should be within approx 2-3 times greater than for ReSharper
1.5, it's OK.
During the start-up period, ReSharper loads its assemblies and does some
reflection stuff and also
it initializes its UI in VS. I have no idea why this activity causes such
a huge slowdown with virus scanner.

We'll optimize the start-up time as a part of the overall optimization efforts.
We'll also try to reproduce the
issue with virus scanning software.
