SkyleCop 4.7.x taking too much time for the installation!

Hi,

I'm just wondering why is the installation taking so much time! takes about 5 - 10 minutes?

It calls devenv.exe /setup for each visual studio you have.

They take ages.

Also on my laptop it only takes 2 mins for all 3 VS's.

Have you got lots of other plugins/addins too?

Takes a while for me too, but I think part of the "issue" is perception as the dialog sits with the progress bar at 100% for several minutes. The HDD is flat out, so it is doing something, its just that its not telling you about it.

Yep.

Its a post install CustomAction and so it gets to 100% and then starts. It could of course be something else but if you run the installer in debug and then have a look at the log file you should see the time is used right at the end when its running (up to) 3 devenv.exe /setup.
