Visual studio stuck "Waiting for parse to complete" – Resolved


I tried all sorts of things including machine restart but did not work.

I realized the issues is because of the corrupted user solution file.

So to resolve this go to the folder with solution file.  From the menu chose to see hidden files.

You will find yoursolution.suo file .  Delete it and restart the visual studio and try to open the solution.  It should be back

    This works for the first time you go back into VS but the issue can ALWAYS reoccur for no apparent reason.

    Is there no way to turn this "parsing" off?
