Visual Studio Project Cleaner

Visual Studio Project Cleaner is a software tool that removes all Visual Studio temporary files. This is a good way to make Visual Studio less likely to crash.

Many years ago we noticed that after using Visual Studio for a long time it would become unstable. It would crash randomly. Cleaning the Visual Studio temporary files would fix the problem. To make things easier and more reliable we created a tool to do the cleaning for us. That tool is Visual Studio Project Cleaner. Since then we’ve also added support for cleaning some related temporary files: from Visual Lint, Visual Studio Project Fixer and Visual Studio upgrades.
