« Silverlight Build SLOW with WCF RIA Services
For those of you working on larger Silverlight projects, you may have been suffering from SLOOOOWWWWWW builds.
Well, you’re not alone. Since WCF RIA Services, we have been struggling with slow builds until we figured out the problem.
It seems that the culprit is RIA Services intellisense… and here is how we got around it.
You need to add an entry to the registry that disables intellisense for RIA Services.
- Run regedit.exe
- Navigate to (this on 64 bit Windows 7) [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\WCFRIAServices\v1.0
- Right click on the right (where the values are) and select NEW > DWord 32 bit value called: DisableLiveIntellisense
- Right click the value you just added and select Modify.
- Enter the Value 1 to disable.
Now build, run and enjoy visual studio working as it should.
