I am working in Visual Studio 2008 on a SSIS package. It is really frustrating that I get "Microsoft Visual Studio is Busy" message quite often. It almost happens every time I try to open a data source, destination, etc.

From what I can see it seems VS tries to save Items. Is there any way to avoid this auto save? Generally how can we get rid of this message and interruptions?

I assume VS is also telling you to contact Microsoft Support if this error happens often. Have you tried that? – Max Vernon Nov 23 '12 at 2:04
I'm actually assuming that you have some sort of resource issue on your dev machine. What else is going on while you're doing this? – swasheck May 1 '13 at 17:21
