How to get past Visual Studio locking up

This isn’t an exhaustive list, but my top fixes.

Locate the devenv.exe for the version of VS that you are working on.

  1. devenv.exe /SafeMode
    1. Suspends plugins
  2. devenv.exe /ResetSkipPkgs
    1. Removes packages that are having problems
  3. devenv.exe /ResetUserData
    1. Resets all of the user custom settings
  4. devenv.exe /ResetSettings
    1. Resets VS to default settings, no plugins.
