Batch move to resource hangs


If I try to batch move to resource an entire form or an entire project the plugin hangs. I need to abort visual studio. I tried with visual studio 2010 and 2013.

Hi alecava,
does this problem occur in a specific form/project or is it a general issue? Could you try this on an empty form?

Hi cre8or,
If the form has few components (about 1 tenth) the process is ok. But if
the form has a lot of components or a lot of source rows (may be 500 source
rows) the process runs very slowly. Sometime hangs sometime (after 10-20
mins) finishes but the Execute button is grayed.

I'm very busy at the moment otherwise I could debug the process.

so the searching phase (that results in the table of proposed moves) is OK and the problem occurs when you click the Execute button?
It is possible that Visual Localizer interferes with the Designer of the form. Try closing the Designer or even, running the Batch move on closed files (you can do that by invoking the command from context menu of the Solution Explorer).
To absolutely rule out all possible interferences, close all files in Visual Studio and then run the command. In every case, be sure to backup first - just to make sure :).
Let me know if it helps.

On VS2015 the hangs occur especially with many files being investigated, but have seen it happening also with 10 files already.
