Using Build 256 in VS2005. No matter what I untick in the addin manager Resharper will always load. My only solution appears to be complete uninstallation.
Why do I not want it loading always? Because its just so damn slow - you guys have traded the "slow solution load time" for "slow all the time". I appreciate some people may load up VS.Net once a day and they are less bothered by the extra seconds. For the rest of us who work on multiple projects all day long, or equally in my case also write our own add-ins which mean every time we go into debug mode we have the interminable wait while another VS.Net instance starts and we see "Resharper initializing menus". On top of that its so slow intercepting keystrokes within the IDE. This is on a three monitor system running each screen at 1920x1200 btw. Uninstall Resharper and life returns to normal acceptable performance.
Why is this? Sadly it appears you have ruined what was for me (and many others) a great product prior to 2.0. Please do yourselves a favour and get rid of the bloat - make it possible to not have loaded all the stuff many of us didnt want, ask for or are going to use (unit testing, asp.net stuff for those of us doing only winforms/backend development) etc. I've read the other threads where the answer is "throw more hardware at it" - well quite frankly for those of us working in very large companies with standard developer desktops these things dont happen overnight, nor are they going to roll out a new platform just for a badly architected addin.
If I sound bitter its because like so many others here I am so disappointed - I have sung the praises of Resharper to everyone that would listen for the 1.5 versions, convinced them to put up with that painful "loading caches" delay and the horribly slow intellisense because it was pretty solid bug wise and of the "promise" of 2.0 improving things. Instead 2.0 is just horrifically slow all the time - on top of which Resharper throws all sorts of exceptions under the covers which means if we turn on "break on exception" we get loads of Resharper exceptions popping up and asking for class files before even remotely executing my own code.
Is there any light on the horizon? Do you guys have a plan to do something about the performance? I don't think many Resharper users would argue that you have some of the most compelling features on the market, and you put to complete and utter shame the pitiful efforts by Microsoft with its code snippets, refactorings, resolve usages etc. However I really can't recommend to the guys in my and other teams at this point that they install Resharper 2.0 as it has had such a negative impact in VS2005 performance.
Anything you can tell us to give us hope? I don't want to have to start us looking at alternative products as I know we are going to have to "give up" features we know and love from Resharper 1.5.
Many thanks for a reply.
