Slow toolbox in silverlight using VS2010

The problem

If you install the RIA SDK from microsoft you may experience a very slow toolbox with the following message in visutal studio stauts bar :
Loading toolbox content from package 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.IDE.ToolBoxControlsInstaller.ToolboxInstallerPackage' {2C298B35-07DA-45F1-96A3-BE55D91C8D7}

The solution

  1. Open the registry editor (regedit from the run menu).
  2. Type the GUID in the registry editor search dialog.
  3. Find every folder with that key and remove them.
This should not load the problematic items from your toolbox anymore and your VS will be fast again.
