.NET/Visual Studio: The ContextSwitchDeadlock doesn’t necessarily mean your code has an issue.

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/01/07

Thanks Pedro! (emphasis below is mine)

The ContextSwitchDeadlock doesn’t necessarily mean your code has an issue, just that there is a potential.

If you go to Debug > Exceptions in the menu and expand the “Managed Debugging Assistants”, you will find ContextSwitchDeadlock is enabled.

If you disable this, VS will no longer warn you when items are taking a long time to process.

In some cases you may validly have a long-running operation.

It’s also helpful if you are debugging and have stopped on a line while this is processing – you don’t want it to complain before you’ve had a chance to dig into an issue.
