I'm experiencing constant hangs after successfully building my solution for an Unreal Engine 4 project.
Maybe 1 in every 3 builds, the build will complete successfully, then VS will completely freeze, GUI unresponsive etc.
I'm using VS 16.11.14.
The only extension I'm using is Visual Assist 10.9.2443.
So far I've tried the following:
Check out my entire repository in Perforce to make sure file permissions aren't messing with the build process.
Remove Windows Defender access to the folders where my project lives.
Disable Visual Assist before running VS.
Run VS in Administrator mode.
Nothing works. I'm still getting regular hangs of VS, ONLY after successful builds.
This destroys productivity, causes bugs in Unreal, and just generally makes the whole process of trying to be creatively productive a damned nightmare. I've even tried increasing the output verbosity to maximum to see if anything is getting picked up by VS but nothing useful is being printed in the Output Window.
Has anybody experienced anything like this?
Or does anybody have any general suggestions for things I haven't tried?
I would really appreciate some help, as I'm at my wits end with all of this.
