This project is read-only.

Many hg.exe processes spawned - VS 2008 / XP / VM

Using 1.08

I've run this on a normal install without issue - but on an XP virtual machine running on Windows 7 every time I open a project thats under source control I get multiple hg.exe processes spawning - this rapidly starts to consume all CPU and the system effectively locks up.

Removing VisualHG as the chose source editor allows me to open a project normally again.  TortoiseHG works fine outside of VS

Any ideas ?

Yes, check out the new version 1.0.8a. pls let me know if that helps.

Many thanks for that - it certainly seems to have helped.

I did get quiet a lot of hg.exe processes when I opened up and 100% cpu for a little while - so I'm not sure its quiet right yet - but it settled down after 60 seconds or so and seemed quite useable after that

Processes using 100% cpu was one csrss.exe and several hg.exe - which disappear after a bit

Thanks for the great tool.  If I update to a different branch, I get a large number of hg.exe and conhost.exe processes.  They do not go away until I close visual studio.

I am running 1.0.8b, VS.NET 2010 Pro, and Win7 64.

thanks, Jake

Can you please test and confirm with version 1.0.8c.

Switching to 1.0.8c seemed to fix the issue.  Thanks for the great tool!
