StyleCop "locks up" in VS2010

Sep 26, 2012 at 8:31 PM

Since 4.7.36, StyleCop has been "locking up" in VS2010. It will hit a file in the analysis and simply get stuck on it. Any attempts to run StyleCop again will fail (nothing happens). Usually, closing VS and opening it again will resume working, but often it will also simply lock up. Repeated restarts will end up fixing the issue.

In 4.7.39 I've removed the threading code that I think is causing the issue. Please re-test.

Re-tested in version 4.7.40. Now Visual Studio completely locks up, requiring me to kill it from the task manager.

Back to 4.7.11 for me, once again.

This is making no sense and I wish I could fix it for you.
Let me build you a debug build of .41 and if you enable logging we can try and reproduce the problem.
Once I know what it is I will fix it straight away.
So this was actually working but taking a long time to update task pane.
