Description Jason Smith [MSFT] 2017-10-12 18:06:03 UTC
Happens every time, with perfect reliability. The solution doesn't even finish loading before the hardlock. VS becomes completely unresponsive. Xamarin: 220.127.116.11 X.A.: 18.104.22.168 X.I.: 22.214.171.124 Did not happen with the previous stable release.

Just realized I forgot to mention this happens with VS2015

I have the same problem, any new on that ?

for me it's the 15.5-preview-1. There is a "hidden" crash reporting window or something "werfault.exe" and creating a 800MB dump file in the TEMP folder when I try to load Xamarin project. Sometimes loading without crash sometimes not. Just recently crashed 9 times, so I decided to unload every xamarin extensions + deleted ".vs" folder in my solution folder to clear the settings, closed vs, then reloaded every xamarin extensions, closed vs again and then the solution loaded without crash.
