We have many projects (more than 100) in our solution and since Xamarin 4, Visual Studio hangs every time when loading the solution. We need to delete .suo file of the solution to make it work
I am setting this bug to be "NEEDINFO" while it is awaiting additional information to determine whether it can be marked as a duplicate of Bug 36185.
The new information I'll request is described in Bug 36185, Comment 1. In particular, please attach back the call stack from the hung / frozen instance of Visual Studio by completing the following steps (anyone who comes across this bug report is welcome to attach back their own call stack).
> 1. Start a second instance (a "new window") of Visual Studio.
> 2. Close any open solutions in the new instance of VS.
> 3. Select "Debug -> Attach to Process".
> 4. Select the original hung instance of `devenv.exe` from the list of
> "Available Processes".
> 5. Select "Debug -> Break All".
> 6. Make sure you have the "Debug Location" toolbar is enabled.
> 7. From the "Thread" drop-down menu in the "Debug Location" toolbar, select the
> "Main Thread".
> 8. Open "Debug -> Windows -> Call Stack". If the Call Stack shows just
> "[External Code]", then right-click "[External Code]" and select "Show External
> Code" from the context menu before copying the information.
Once you see the full call stack, select all the lines, copy and paste them into a text file, and attach back the text file.
Thanks in advance!

Small wording correction for step 8:
> 8. Open "Debug -> Windows -> Call Stack". If the Call Stack contains _any lines_
> that say "[External Code]", right-click "[External Code]" and select "Show
> External Code" from the context menu before copying the information.

Perfect. Thanks! That call stack does indeed match Bug 36185, so I'll mark this as a duplicate to help keep the bug list tidy.
