Learn how to enable the Lightweight Solution Load feature at the IDE or Solution level. This feature dramatically reduces the time needed to load large projects.
- [Instructor] If you have ever opened a large solution in a visual studio, by that I mean a solution that has dozens or hundreds of projects you know that it can take a significant time to load. Over the years Microsoft has had different ideas on how to improve this speed and here's their latest idea. It's called the Lightweight Solution mode. It's not enabled by default. Go to tools, options. And go to projects and solutions, and then choose this lightweight solution load. Now every single solution that you open will use this new system, which will significantly improve the loading time and it'll reduce your memory usage.
If you want to opt in on a solution by solution basis, you need to click on your solution in visual studio, and go to the properties pane. Look for this section, lightweight load. Default means to use whatever setting is in tools options. And if you want to force the lightweight load choose enable and if you want to disable it for this project, choose disabled.
