Since I upgraded to, when I start Visual Studio 2010, a RedGate.IPNService.exe is started and uses almost 50% of CPU.

The log file shows only:
17 Apr 2011 18:25:49,828 [1] INFO  RedGate.SqlPrompt.Engine.LogService - Starting new SQL Prompt editor session

which is not unexpected as this solution doesn't have any database projects.

    Thanks for your post - I've done a quick search and this isn't a problem I could find as being reported yet.
    Are you also getting errors in your logs, as per this thread?

    You mention 50% CPU usage - is this a dual-core CPU so actually it's maxing out one core? The performance tab of task manager may show this. Does it die down after a while?

    I had the same problem with the Prompt version just below 5.2 on a Win 2008 R2 SP1 environment, and Red Gate support sent me a regedit to stop the IPN service from launching, which stops the symptom at least.
