ContextSwitchDeadlock Was Detected?May 18, 2011
I'm getting this message in my 2010 debugger suddenly for some reason:The CLR has been unable to transition from COM context 0x4c4b68 to COM context 0x4c4cd8 for 60 seconds. The thread that owns the destination context/apartment is most likely either doing a non pumping wait or processing a very long running operation without pumping Windows messages. This situation generally has a negative performance impact and may even lead to the application becoming non responsive or memory usage accumulating continually over time. To avoid this problem, all single threaded apartment (STA) threads should use pumping wait primitives (such as CoWaitForMultipleHandles) and routinely pump messages during long running operations.
It happens while I am looping through a datatable. In each iteration I do a SQL Select lookup and a a SQL Update if I don't find a matching record.
