Incredibuild builds and then waits a long time doing nothing before eventually completing
Posted by Yoni Davidson, Last modified by Yoni Davidson on 27 December 2017 09:07 AM


After the build seems to be completed, IncrediBuild just hangs for an indefinite amount of time. If it continues to hang, it seems to timeout and recognize the build as 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 terminates and IncrediBuild recognizes the build as complete. This usually happens with Visual Studio 2013.


This issue may be caused by a corrupt .sdf/.suo file which causes excessive reading of .pdb, .idb, .tlog, .obj, and other files.  Shutting down the environment, removing these files and the 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, at
