I have a project making an MSI that is about 2MB in size, yes very small. Another that is about 20 MB, also very small.
When performing a BUILD of the project (located in a folder off of C drive and not in a "User" folder. It is a folder everyone has read and write to) for 1 user (the one who installed AI originally) the build takes 2-5 minutes. For another user, the build takes nearly 20 minutes.
--BOTH are administrators on the system
--Builds are completed successfully for both users
--both users are using the same system the same way (it is a VM and both of us remote to it)
--No antivirus on the system tying things up
--Time of day and day of week do not matter
--signing server is http://timestamp.digicert.com and the firewall rules are not blocking anything there (verified already)
Only difference we can see is that one user is the person who initially loaded AI and performs the periodic upgrades to it, the other updates the install packages now and again. What could contribute to such a large time difference?
