UPDATE 2017-04-07: I am able to open the solution after closing the "Test Explorer" window.
UPDATE 2017-04-06: The latest VS2017 update DOES NOT FIX the problem I experience. So either this is not a duplicate, or the fix does not work properly.
1. Start VS 2017 Enterprise. 2. Open Solution containing 64 Projects. 3. VS 2017 shows some activity in the status bar but then, 4. VS 2017 Hangs (not responding) 5. Wait for over 10 minutes 6. Force Close VS 2017.
Notes: I have installed ReSharper 2016.3.2. Solution is located in a Workspace originally created in VS 2015. Solution opens properly in VS 2015, with the same version of ReSharper. Machine has 24 GB of RAM, 13GB+ is available at the time of opening the Solution.

I have two machines both win 10 with all updates. One the solution opens another it doesn't. My solution does have a runsettings file but since it isn't reproducible across machines deleting it if that was the fix wouldn't make sense. We have runsettings to allow long running test sessions to not time out.
