Knowledgebase:
"Preparing build step" phase is really slow
Posted by Yoni Davidson on 05 January 2018 10:04 AM

Issue:

This can usually happen with C# builds but can also occur with C++ builds and it is related to Devenv.exe way of work  

In order to avoid this long phase, you can try to invoke the build directly with MSBuild: 

On the Initiator machine, please create the registry string value named UseMSBuild under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Xoreax\IncrediBuild\Builder and set its value to 1 

 

 Causes:

Starting from V9.01 IB will automatically force MSBuild and not use Devenv when it comes to C# builds. 

If your Visual Studio has only the C# Solution installed (no C++) the following error can occur: 

Initializing...  

The system cannot find the path specified.  

Active code page: 437  

'msbuild' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. 

 

 Fix:

On the Initiator machine, please create the registry string value named ForceUseMSBuild under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Xoreax\IncrediBuild\Builder and set its value to 0.
