Make Visual Studio\BIDS Launch Quicker Using /NOSPLASH

Oct 17 2011 3:49AM by Jeff Wharton   

Adding the /NOSPLASH option to your Visual Studio\BIDS shortcut will make Visual Studio\BIDS launch quicker :

%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe /NOSPLASH %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe /NOSPLASH

  • Good one Jeff..

    Can we make any batch file or something with this command, so that when we click that file, it will directly open VS/BIDS?

  • Not sure what you mean as all you need to do is add the /NOSPLASH option to the Visual Studio\BIDS shortcut for it to work. The shortcut details I provided was for example only.

  • I am looking for a quick shortcut file, when i double click on that file, it should open Visual Studio without splash screen.

    In a Notepad, Enter the below commands and save as sample.bat . Now double click on batch file, it will open the Visual studio. But the problem i found here is command prompt is not closing after VS is opened.

    cd\
    cd %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE
    devenv.exe /NOSPLASH

  • Why don't you just right click on your desktop and select New and then Shortcut. Then add one of the following as the command:

    For 64-bit OS

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /NOSPLASH

    For 32-bit OS

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe" /NOSPLASH

  • OR simply open 'start menu', locate visual studio menu item, right click > go to properties and add "/NOSPLASH" at the end of the "Target" field. That is what I did.

  • I think that Ramireddy means that he want this functionality even if click on a project file instead of opening visual studio directly. I the question is really this, here is how it could be achieved:

    1. create a shortcut like Jeff explains in the same folder, name it like devenv-nosplash.exe
    2. edit your link and target the command line with the /NOSPLASH at the end
    3. right click on a project file and chose [open with \ choose default program ]
    4. then select your link instead of devenv.exe

    now you should have the nosplash each time you click on a project ;-)

    hope it helps
