Make RAD Studio step sometimes hangs
Hi all,

I have a problem with building Delphi 2007 group project files with the Make RAD Studio action. Sometimes after building all the projects in the groupproj file the msbuild process hangs for some reason. The CPU usage of the msbuild process is 0%. The msbuild process hangs for about one out of 30 times.

When I kill the msbuild process the Visual build process resumes building (because of the continue on fail flag) and the output (dll and exe) files of the all projects in the project group do exist and are correct.

To work around this problem I now have added a timeout to all the Make RAD studio steps. So when it hangs it will be terminated after 900 seconds.

Is this issue already known? Do anyone know a better solution then mine?

regards, George

We've never seen that behavior. VBP is waiting for the MSBuild process to exit, and apparently it doesn't sometimes for you. You might try updating the .NET Framework (latest 2.0 sevice pack or install .NET 3.5, which has a newer version of MSBuild) to see if it helps. Other than that, terminating the process is probably the best option.
