PTVS 2.1 Refreshing DB Hangs with Python 3.4

Nov 6, 2014 at 2:00 AM
I'm with VS 2010 with PTVS 2.1 and Python 3.4 (with no additional packages) and the completion DB seems to be in an infinite loop, taking over an hour before I shutdown VS and kill the Analyzer process.

I have found some other, similar threads but they seem outdated or don't quite apply. Is 'C:\Users\<userid>\AppData\Local\Python Tools\CompletionDB\10.0\2af0f10d-7135-4994-9156-5d01c9c11b7e\3.4\AnalysisLog.txt' the correct log? The last line is "2014-11-05T20:09:04: Starting analysis of 1477 modules" Is that normal?

An hour is too long, certainly. Do you have the exact version number of the Python you installed? (The filename of the installer would be perfect.)

Python 3.4.2 (v3.4.2:ab2c023a9432, Oct 6 2014, 22:15:05) [MSC v.1600 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

That's very strange, I've been using that version since it was released. I'll try some things tomorrow and see if I can figure out what may be going on.

Is there any other diagnostic tool that I can enable?

Is the LogPath Registry Key (from this post) still valid?

Yep, if you want to produce that log and email it to, that'd be helpful.

I created the key Analysis\StandardLibrary with the string value LogPath set to D:\log.csv in the my registry so that I have
After killing the process and re-launching VS and manually clicking the refresh db button, no log appeared. And I still get stuck.

I expected to see a /diag command switch in the command line but I don't see it:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio\2.1\Microsoft.PythonTools.Analyzer.exe" /id {2af0f10d-7135-4994-9156-5d01c9c11b7e} /version 3.4 /python C:\Progra~1\Python34\python.exe /library C:\Progra~1\Python34\lib /outdir "C:\Users\sakahira\AppData\Local\Python Tools\CompletionDB\10.0\2af0f10d-7135-4994-9156-5d01c9c11b7e\3.4" /basedb "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Python Tools for Visual Studio\2.1\CompletionDB" /log "C:\Users\sakahira\AppData\Local\Python Tools\CompletionDB\10.0\2af0f10d-7135-4994-9156-5d01c9c11b7e\3.4\AnalysisLog.txt" /glog "C:\Users\sakahira\AppData\Local\Python Tools\CompletionDB\10.0\AnalysisLog.txt" /wait ""

Does your user have permission to write to D:\?

You won't see the extra option added to the command line as we pick up the registry key inside the analyzer. However, if you want to add /diag D:\log.csv to that command line and execute it yourself, that will work too.

In the end I had to manually execute the command line with the /diag option. The registry key does not work for me.

After re-installing PTVS and Python 3.4.2 I am still hanging. I've e-mailed the log.csv file.

I figured it out with Zooba's help. Here's the related work item:
