After upgrading to V6.0 and above, Build Monitor bars cant be clicked during the build progress
Posted by Yoni Davidson, Last modified by Yoni Davidson on 27 December 2017 09:09 AM

From IncrediBuild 6.0 onwards, there is a new acceleration feature called "Predicted Execution," which can provide up to an additional 20% acceleration on your Builds.

The way Predicted Execution works is by performing nonchronological executions on certain processes such that these dependent parts will be built in parallel.

Essentially, some tasks may execute before when you would usually expect them to execute in the output order, so if one of these parts are clicked on, nothing will appear until these process executions reach a certain point durng the build process. As soon as that task is successfully executed, then that progress bar can be clicked on.

When the build is complete, then all parts of the Build Monitor bars can be clicked on and it will be responsive.

Disabling this feature will allow you to click on any bar as you usually would during build time before IncrediBuild V6.0. To disable this feature, open up the Agent Settings on the machine running the Initiator Agent. Under the Visual Studio Builds tab, click on Advanced. Under the "Predictive execution" section, uncheck the  “Enhance throughput using out-of-order tasks spawning” option.
