Unable to display this Web Part – XSLTListView and XSLTDataView web part

Microsoft in their wisdom reduced the timeout for XSLT transformation from 5 seconds to 1 second without giving the administrator the option of increasing it manually via Powershell.  The reduction is a securtity measure to reduce the risk of successfull DoS attacks. To change the Transform Time out you need to update the time out from sharepoint powershell


$farm = Get-SPFarm

$farm.XsltTransformTimeOut = 5
