    Hi @amin s ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    I think there are two possibilities.

    The first is this may be a potential issue of Visual Studio 2015, please try to update and use the latest version of Visual Studio 2015, and if this issue still appears in the latest version of Visual Studio 2015, please report this issue to Visual Studio Product Team in Developer Community.

    The second is this issue is caused by the firewall which may occupy or block the Visual Studio 2015’s diagnostic tool. Under this circumstance, this issue is related to firewall and needs to be checked by using tools like Network Monitor and Process Monitor. So I would suggest you open a case with Microsoft where more in-depth investigation can be done so that you would get a more satisfying explanation and solution to this issue. Also, in this way, they can have a clear picture about your issue and your environment by phone communication and live share session. You may find phone number for your region accordingly from this link: Global Customer Service phone numbers.

    Best Regards,
