I have a weird performance issue with ReSharer 5.1.
Whenever I perform any "code-changing action" (creating methods, expanding templates like "propg" or "foreach", or even renaming locals), there is a noticable delay between initiating the action and getting any result. To the point of becoming unbearable. The most obvious and a very hurtful example is this: When I select a local variable and Refactor->Rename it, I can directly type the new name into the editor window and all instances of the name get updated "live". But between each character appearing on the screen almost a second passes. Instead of having a full variable name written within a second, it sometimes needs half a minute.
The problem only appears to happen on my machine, which is a Intel Core2 Quad CPU @ 2.4 GHz with 8GB of RAM, running a 64-bit Windows 7. I use Visual Studio 2010 Premium with ReSharper 5.1.300.12
I tried downgrading to a previous release of 5.1; changing IntelliSense options; deactivation solution-wide analysis; clearing the cache. While I only work with c# solutions, the problem appears in all of them; large projects as well as small ones. No file, however, is obscenely large; the usual couple hundred LoC.
So far noone in our team has been able to track down why it takes ages for any "automatic" action to complete, especially considering that my machine is the only one where the problem appears.
I hope that I could receive a few pointer what might be at fault for the performance issues; maybe there are "known issues" that I failed to locate anywhere, despite having searched web and forum. Thank you advance.
With best regards
