Larger solutions can take a long time to load. Make it faster, so I can get started on my work right away.

    (Update 10/18)
    Hello again,

    I’m Will Buik, a Technical Product Manager on Visual Studio’s IDE team and I am back with an update. We have added an experimental feature to Visual Studio “15” Preview 5 that improves the time it takes to load Solutions. The feature is disabled by default, but you can turn it on through Tools→Options, “Projects and Solutions”→General→“Lightweight Solution load.”

    We would love to hear your feedback about how lightweight Solution load works for you. If you are interested in participating in a quick user study to give us some feedback about the feature please fill out this brief survey: https://aka.ms/w2kt3j. We will reach out to you soon.

    If you are interested in learning more about lightweight Solution load, check out the VS Blog: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2016/10/11/shorter-solution-load-time-in-visual-studio-15/
    You can download Visual Studio “15” Preview 5 here – https://www.visualstudio.com/visual-studio-pre-release-downloads/

    Thanks everyone, we look forward to your feedback.
    -Will

        Why can't we just turn it OFF. Not stupid nag-ware banner telling me every time I load my solution that it could be faster to use a feature that simply breaks working with my very large solution. 2017 is a LOT faster loading everything anyway; but its annoying to tell a nagging feature banner to go away every time I load the solution.You know why? Because having to simply read that every time I load a solution I have to turn off a nagging banner is stupid and repetitive, like this comment is expected to be.

        This feature has been implemented in visual studio 2017 but currently I think some important things are missing for this to be useful in my particular use case. Our main solution has 300+ projects at the moment and often times you need to be able to search (ctrl+t) for a type/method or do a find references/usages across the solution. With lightweight solution enabled you can't do either of these things without loading every project in the solution although it doesn't really tell you this as it just reports on results that it does find for the projects you do happen to have loaded.

        I was really excited about this feature initially as working with 300+ project solutions in visual studio has been rather unpleasant for quite some time.

        This is a great suggestion, not just for the initial open (which, I agree with mike, is infrequent), but for switching branches as well, which is fairly frequent for me. The switch branch behaviour is absolutely painful in a solution with dozens of projects at the moment. The reload is interminable and, frankly, why can't it behave like Sublime Text: instead of popping up a dialog, reload the modified files from disk with asking me. Also the conflict behaviour, when you have unsaved changes, sucks: give me a diff view and allow me to merge rather than an either/or option which might lose something important.

        I'm voting this down. The time that a normal developer spends on solution loads is very small. Normally, you just leave open all solutions that you need. At the end of the work day you put the PC to sleep so that it resumes the next day.

        The team should spend their time elsewhere.

        Changing branches is very annoying, also large solutions use tons of memory so I find I have to close that VS instance if opening another copy of VS. Then I'll have to reload it after closing the 2nd instance, huge time waster.

        This is incredibly frustrating in a Git-style branch-per-feature environment, where every branch change requires a solution/project reload. I'm using VS2013 with an 85k iops SSD, 16GB ram and overclocked i5 2500k. Windows 8.1 Pro with all updates installed. There doesn't appear to be a hardware performance bottleneck looking at Resource Monitor during a project load.

        double click the solution file, go make a coffee in the meantime and it'll all be ready to rock'n'roll :-)

        I tend to load a solution once ever few weeks. I'm all up for improving the load time but for my own use I can't justify voting for this over some of the other issues.
