Large C# and VB solutions load significantly faster in 15.5 update

App Center Team

On average, 50 percent of all solutions opened by Visual Studio users open in ten seconds or less. However, large solutions can take longer to load because there are a lot of projects that Visual Studio needs to process.

Over the last six months, we looked at ways to make solution load much faster, even for large solutions. We are happy to share that with update 15.5, Visual Studio 2017 loads C# and Visual Basic projects twice as fast as before. (C++ solution load was optimized earlier in Visual Studio 2017, as described here.)
