I am working on a large ASP.NET application. everything was working fine initally but with the growing number of files in project VS.NET is responding too slowly and build takes a long time to complete. I have divided solution into 2 different projects one
UI(User Interface) and other is DAL(Data Access Layer). Any suggestion to improve speed of VS.NET and build time.

Hello my friend,
Referencing several projects causes it to go slower. Compile the separate projects into their DLLs and then reference the DLLs in your main project so that only your main application is re-compiled and re-built per build. And if you do not need to step
through the application for testing, go for release builds instead of debug builds to remove the overheads associated with generating the debug related files, such as the pdb files.
One thing I noticed with VS 2003 is the slow startup time of the Visual Studio. To speed this up, click on Tools and then Options and then within the At Startup dropdown list, choose Show Empty Environment.

Yeh i am doing the right way as you mentioned by problem is that my primary project is too big that it takes long to build the whole application. I don't wanna split this into two projects and then add reference because it will increase maintenance cost.
Any other suggestions...
