    Here's an example that's missed entirely by CA2000 - the problem that gave rise to this suggestion in fact.

    https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/Feedback/Details/996264

    If the problem is truly impossible to diagnose, then it's a sorry state to be in, but some tooling (maybe a debug facility at run-time) should be available with VS to easily identify these issue. I know that some 3'rd party tools can identify such issues, but we've had problems getting these tools to work in several of our scenarios. i.e. they haven't been any use!

    As explained in this blog post (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2015/10/08/how-we-use-user-voice-to-make-a-better-product.aspx), we had updated the status of this suggestion to “Under Review” to let you know we are tracking it on our backlog. To better indicate which one we are actively working on or which ones are on our 6-month plan, we introduced the states “Started” and “Planned”. The goal is to give an update on in progress suggestions at least every 3 months. This suggestion is still on our backlog, but they are not part of the 6-month plan.

    Hello again voters and reporters for this UserVoice item

    Visual Studio 2017 RTW, released yesterday, contains fixes to many of the worst issues we are aware of that caused typing delays. To get the benefit, if you haven’t already done so, please download it today from https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/

    We’ve also included enhanced typing telemetry in the new release, so we can continue to focus on improving those issues that remain, and we’ll alert you via the Visual Studio Performance Center (see https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2016/10/10/faster-visual-studio-15-startup/ for details) when an extension is slowing your typing down.

    We’re not done: we intend to make further improvements to typing responsiveness in updates to Visual Studio 2017.

    Thank you

    Mark Wilson-Thomas and Hemchander Sannidhanam
    Program Manager and Engineering Manager
    Visual Studio Editor Team

    (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
