Visual Studio 2013 hangs on debug (Fixed)

Quick solution: Uncheck show all files.

I was coding for my personal project and after a few hours of debugging, VS seems to hang. I am pretty sure its not the hardware, so lets get that out of the way.

The solution contains a number of projects and folders. So to test, I created an empty solution, added the project and nada. I might be doing something wrong. Maybe VS settings? Symbols? But I already make sure that my build of VS follows my guide so its not it.

After tinkering around, setting settings gave up. So I will debug for one solution for now, its just a view change and do a build after check-in. I noticed that the icon ‘do not show all files’ is ticked, saying “who is adding files again thru solutions explorer?!”

Un-tick it, debug and hey! It works! Gotta try this now on the main solution.
