  • Try set "Tools" -> "Option" -> "Windows Forms designer" -> "Automatically Populate Toolbox" to False and see if it helps. The form designer could be busy initializing all component libraries of your toolbox.

    There is also possibility that some of your components does not handle "Design mode" properly, or you have set some component's default value in design mode in incompatible settings... you have to figure out what component is causing the problem yourself in that case.

  • If you're building an ASP.NET application then please post in the ASP.NET forums. If you building a WPF window or Winforms form then we can move it to the correct forum.
