Incredibuild builds and then waits a long time doing nothing before eventually completing
Posted by Yoni Davidson on 28 April 2014 02:29 PM


After the build seems to be completed, IncrediBuild would just hang for an indefinite amount of time.  If letting it hang for a long time, it appear to timeout and would recognize that the build is done. Looking at Process Explorer, it looks like the spawned devenv.exe is reading something which is causing this delay.  When it is finished, the devenv.exe is terminates and IncrediBuild recognizes the completion.

  • Very rare behavior
  • Usually happens with Visual Studio 2013


This issue may be caused by a corrupt .sdf/.suo file which caused excessive reading of .pdb, .idb, .tlog, .obj, and other files.  Shutting down the environment, removing these files and some cache files in the %appdata%\..\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\12.0, usually solves this issue.

In case the problem is not solved, please contact IncrediBuild support.
