After installing the WPF software I was not able to open any project in VS 2017 without it hanging.


In the end I removed the VS integration and was able to resume development.


It was the only Telerik component I had installed. I can't find the version number but it was the latest of the website as of 17th Oct 2019.


Can you explain why this happened?
