standalone build: "checking directory exists" takes up to 2 min

prothero--- via use-livecode
Hello,

LC 8.1 – 8.1.4 and 9.0. I am on Win 10. The stack file source as well as the
standalone build directory is located on a windows server.

When building a standalone für my (complex) main application on the server
dir the standalone builder progress stopps at the stage „checking directory
exists“ for 1-2 minutes.

Building a standalone for the same stack in a local dir, it just takes
seconds. Now I could say, ok, LiveCode has to handle some network security
permissions or such for 2 mins. (btw. It is the same using a UNC path or
mapped drive)

But building any other (smaller) stack or a new test stack on the server dir
takes only seconds.

What stack parameters have an impact on “checking the build directory”? OK,
since this affects me only when building a standalone and doesn’t seem to
have any impact on the finished standalone, I probably have to put into my
trash of weired issues.

Or any idea I can check for?

Tiemo

If you build a standalone for your app, and immediately build again, is the
second build faster?  If so, it would make me think that the server spins
some of its drives down and it takes a second or two to spin them back up.
Even if the drive you are accessing doesn't spin down, if others on the
server DO, I think there can be a short delay while it spins other drives
back up to speed.

AW: standalone build: "checking directory exists" takes up to 2 min

prothero--- via use-livecode
No, the delay is almost constant with this stack and after the delay of (most times) 1:40 min the, message „checking directory exists“ pops up again, as if there was a "time out" at the first try and then it takes only the standard 2-3 seconds, before the process continous.

Shared volumes can be a great solution for many needs, and over the
years I've used them often.

I don't have a clue to how to resolve your issue with shared volumes,
but FWIW I've found that converting an old PC into a local file server
with Nextcloud has offered all those benefits and more, for the low cost
of some setup time.

I work on my files locally, with local speed.  And with Nextcloud's
native clients for all platforms, everything I do is automatically
synced through the server to my other computers.

Better, I also get versioning.  If I want last week's copy of something
I've been working on, I just log into Nextcloud and select that from the
many time-stamped versions it's been maintaining for me.

There's a whole lot more and I've waxed about Nextcloud here too often
as it is.  But it really is a great package, and once you have a server
set up on your LAN you can add LC Server to it and put it to work doing
all sorts of things you don't want to tie up your workstation with, in
addition to getting automatic incremental versioned backups all day.
