Visual Studio 2012–WPF rendering hanging Visual Studio

In Visual Studio 2012, rendering of the WPF UI is now split into another thread/executable called XDesProc.exe.

 

This opens up a few interesting benefits

  1. If the rendering is taking too much time,
  2. or if the rendering is taking up too much CPU

You can choose to kill it! Simply fire up Task Manager, kill the XDesProc.exe process

Which will cause you to see this inside Visual Studio

You can still continue editing XAML, just that you lost the ability to edit the GUI.
