To investigate the issue further, we'll need some information:
Please go to VS - Help - About Microsoft Visual Studio... - Copy Info
and share that full information with us.
Given that VS is stuck on loading, according to your description, then please zip the logs from last 7 days, as you won't be able to get the last session logs.

# Specific test case information
What kind of solution are you trying to Open? Does it have an Android project? iOS project? PCLs? Xamarin.Forms?
It would be ideal if you can share us a failing sample solution code.
Thanks for reporting.
This problem occurred two weeks ago. It did take a day to resolve and in the end I'm not even sure what exactly fixed it. My solution had 3 android projects and multiple class libraries. From memory, I tried deleting the .vs file which allowed the solution to load. Then updating all nuget packages and restarting/cleaning/rebuilding everything. Sorry I can't give you any more information.
