If Object Explorer is slow to respond after installing SQL Source Control, it may help to disable the automatic polling option.
You can disable this from Options>Indicate changed objects in the Object Explorer and update indicators every X seconds. Please untick the option, restart SSMS, and test.
If the slowness persists, however, it may be due to the object locking feature. To disable this:
- Close SSMS
- Open the file %localappdata%\Red Gate\SQL Source Control X\RedGate_SQLSourceControl_Engine_EngineOptions.xml in a text editor
- Add the tag to disable object locking as below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<EngineOptions version="3" type="EngineOptions">
- Restart SSMS to test
