XC32 - VERY LONG Compile time

Hi,
I downloaded the latest MPLAB and XC32 just now and installed them both on a client's PC which has no internet connection.
 
The PC is powerful but the compile time of a MPLAB auto-generated project with ZERO code added (i.e. even the main() is empty) instead of the classic 3-4 seconds takes an insane 1:16 minute.
 
I looked online and the various threads and tried the following but neither of them worked:
1) reinstall everything (both MPLAB and XC32)
2) block mplab in the firewall so it does not try to access the network which is not available anyway
 
Not sure if relevant but the ICD4 when connected also does not seem to work correctly. When I click on "Run debugger/programmer self test" the window that comes up which has all the tools listed does show the ICD-4 with its serial number next to it but is greyed out. And the ICD-4 is fully working (tested on another machine just now) and showing the blue light (i.e. stand by). In the project properties the ICD-4 appears and it does allow me to select it as debug tool.
 
It is quite urgent, can someone please suggest solutions.
 
Thank you
Rick

What do you see if you go to MPLABX Tools->Licenses->License Status? How is the speed if the PC has internet connection?
 
The ICD4 issue often can be resolved by disconnecting then reconnecting the USB cable.

It shows the exact same information that comes up when I do the same on another machine where MPLAB, XC32 and ICD4 all works perfectly. See attached image.
 
It says:
Microchip XC License Manager Version: 2.26
License Path: C:\ProgramData\Microchip\xclm/license/\
    Product: rlm_roam Type: Workstation Version: 1.0 Mode: ?

Is that 1 minute 16 seconds or is it 1 hour 16 minutes?
 
The way you have written it is ambiguous.
 

Do not use my alias in your message body when replying, your message will disappear ...

Please don't reply to anti.podean's post without changing his username.
If the "i.pod" section is intact your post will vanish.

Sorry but I have no idea what that message means. None. grin: grin Can you please explain. The first part also does not makes sense to me. You mean I should change his username? That's you you say. How?
 
I only posted a couple of times in the past few years so no idea what I have or have not done incorrectly...
 
My reply to the previous post also disappeared.
 
Thank you for any explanation

It means change his name as I changed yours from RickUK to Rick-UK. You can see ric put a period mark into the i p o d part of the name

History.
Many years ago a spammer flooded this board with hundreds of posts each day selling Apple products.
Rather than using the built in forum filters, some ham-fisted web admin type installed various product names into a low level web server firewall. If it gets a match on certain words in your post, it blocks some low level database actions.
So, the forum accepts your post, but it gets discarded at a much lower level.
No-one at Microchip is authorised (or knows how) to modify the web server to remove this "feature".
 
Unfortunately, Allan's username contains "i p o d". That is one of the product names in the firewall. If you quote him in a post, his full username is placed in the quote tag. If you don't insert something between the letters to "break" the sequence of i p o d, you trigger the firewall, and your post appears to vanish.

Are you trying to add confusion?
What you posted is not "all caps".
It is a lower case "L" = "l" followed by upper case "POD".
