Posted by Yoni Davidson, Last modified by Yoni Davidson on 22 August 2016 06:54 AM

Problem Description:

Visual Studio builds started to hang after recent Windows 10 update (Anniversary Edition update)

Workaround:

In case of command line builds, it is possible to add the following switch which will be relevant only for this specific build:
/no_watchdog_thread

in order to set it for all builds, it is possible to add the following registry setting on the Initiator machine:

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Xoreax\IncrediBuild\Builder
Value Name: NoWatchDogThread
Value Type: REG_SZ
Value Data: 1

Solution:

All version starting from Version 7.22 will contain a fix for this problem.
