*Reported on behalf of a user*

With a solution that has a Silverlight 5 project as a startup project, VS2013 freezes. If it is not set as a startup, the solution loads fine. Attached is a stacktrace of where devenv.exe is stuck, along with the Trace.log and mtbserver file.

I have checked this issue but not able to reproduce it. To reproduce this issue I have followed the steps below:

1. Create an iOS application and build it successfully
2. Create a silverlight application named "SilverlightApplication" by clicking Solution-> Right Click on Solution -> Select "Add" and click on "New Project..." -> Select "Silverlight" from left side "Installed" templates -> select "Silverlight Application" from middle panel named "SilverlightApplication" and click on "OK" button.
3. Set "SilverlightApplication.Web" as start-up project and build the whole solution successfully, then close the solution.
4. Open the same solution again, solution loads fine and working fine when build the solution.

Hi Udahm,

Indeed that does not reproduce on a small project, only on a large one.

I've attached the stacktrace that was missing with the original submission.

It seems that for some reason, the connection to the iOS server fails for some specific command, even though it succeeded when opening the solution, then the stacktrace is what's in the new attachments for this bug.

Not that it also happens when closing visual studio, even if the SL5 project was not set as startup.

Thanks,

I am changing bug status as "NEW". We may have to see if a developer can figure out what's going on from the stack trace.
Comment 9 Joaquin Jares 2016-12-22 19:02:56 UTC
There was a problem with iOS devices fixed some time ago that was probably affecting this. I'm closing this as fixed for verification.
