I'm currently testing a C# web application on my local machine. The project is from a network Visual Source Safe 6.0 location.
I have never had this problem in the 8 months that I've had .net 2003 installed on this machine or the 3 months I've been working on this project...
When I start the project from Visual Studio .NET 2003, whether in debug or not, the environment freezes for over a minute. This occurs even if there are no code changes at all.
The status bar indicates "Build Started..." but the command window is frozen and clicking anywhere indicates a "Not Responding" message in the window caption. Finally, after over a minute of waiting, Internet Explorer launches.
Before, with no code changes, IE would launch within seconds of me running the project. With code changes, I would see what was being re-compiled in the command window, the environment would not freeze, and as soon as the changes were compiled, IE would launch.
I have tried rebooting with no success.
Repairing Visual Studio didn't help either.
This doesn't happen on the non- Visual Source Safe projects on my local machine.
Does anyone have an idea as to what could be wrong?

When the IDE window is not responding, I think it might be busy getting files from the VSS server. I suggest you check the following options:
1. Select Tools/Options from the main menu.
2. Navigate to Source Control in the left tree view.
3. Uncheck "Get everything when opening a solution or project".
You can also uncheck the 5 checkboxes to speed up the process.
HTH. If this does not answer your question, please feel free to mark the post as Not Answered and reply. Thank you!
