Is the Build Time longer for SHFB 1.6.0.4?

Feb 15, 2008 at 5:56 PM
I have built my help file with the Oct 07 release in about an hour (~13.000 topics). I am now investigating the January release to pick up bug fixes and enhancements. But BuildAssembler really bogs down. I've quit the build after 4-5 hours. One time it crashed after 7 hours. I haven't built successfully with 1.6.0.4 yet. My current run is using the Presentation patch.

Has anyone else seen a slowdown?

Thanks.

There weren't that many changes in the presentation styles with the January release. Perhaps the MSDN web service is causing problems. It happens from time to time. Set the SdkLinkType property to None and do a build. If it still takes longer then maybe there is an issue with the presentation styles. If not, it's probably the MSDN web service. You can use the new cached build components to alleviate the problem but it'll still take at least one normal build to create the cache.

Thanks. I will try that. Yes, I had SDKLinkType set to MSDN.
