Hi,

Yesterday I upgraded to 5.4.3. It seem that Typemock Productivity (TP) is making Visual Studio behave in a very unproductive way

If I try to type in a variable name at the start of a line (VB) after the first letter Typemock immediately adds "()" , giving for instance "a() or _p()". if I try to backspace over it Typemock adds the paranthesis again so we are stuck in an infinite loop.

If I use AddIn Manager to switch off TP I can continue to type normally.

Unfortunately there seem to be no way of preventing TP to start in the first place so I have to use AddIn manager to disable TP everytime I start Visual Studio. I would urgently want a fix for this or I will have to downgrade to the previous version.

I am running VS2008 SP1 programming in VB with the test code in C#. This problem is in the VB code.

Hi Mats,

Thanks for reporting, we received similar report about IntelliTest and VB, it's a bug.

I recommend in this case to disable the productivity addin from starting with Visual Studio: Tools -> Add-ins manager -> uncheck Issolator Productivity checkbox and Startup checkbox. It will unload the productivity features but will let you use the all other new features of Isolator.

Please let me know if it helps.

Regards,
Elisha

Hi,

The problem is that the StartUp checkbox is greyed out so I can not uncheck it.

The isolator productivity checkbox (leftmost) I have already unchecked otherwise I would not be able to use VS at all.

But with the StartUp checkbox disabled I have to disable "productivity" every time I start VS.

How can I uncheck StartUp?

Hi,

As a workaround, search for the file TypeMock.Productivity.AddIn (It's located in VS addins directory) and rename to it TypeMock.Productivity.AddIn_. It will prevent Visual Studio from loading the addin.

Let me know if it helps.

I've also noticed VSTS (SP1) perf. go to heck with the add-in. Memory usage goes to almost 1 GIG (972,000K, normally about 280,000K) and I spend most of my day waiting on machine...processor and hard-drive rarely stops.

This is a *very* large project so perhaps it's trying to constantly compile things? Normal compile takes about 2-3 minutes as is.

This is a C# solution (13 project - 6 class, 1 web, 1 databse projects, 5 test projects).

After disabling add-in for productivity and restarting VSTS everything is back to normal.

Boo & all,

We managed to improve these performance issues substantially. I'm sending you this patch by email, and this fix will be publicly available in our next version release, later this week.

Thanks for your patience, and thanks for your reports.
