SSDT 2012 IDE takes forever to load SSIS project giving message validating OLE DB source

SSDT (Former BIDS) 2012 IDE takes forever to load SSIS project giving message validating OLE DB source.

The James Serra blog and comments explains the problem and solution

The three options around this problem: The DelayValidation property, the ValidateExternalMetadata property, and the “Work Offine” option.

As mentioned in the comments section, I was unable to open the project.
So using task manager, killed the process.
Edited the .dtproj.user file. Changed the “OfflineMode” from false to true and then open the project.
