64Bit Building projects hangs at linking process

What could be the possible reason the compilation of a 64 bit project hanging at linking time on windows 10. The same project works ok on my laptop. And i dont have any antivirus program installed. Any idea i could try out.

What optimization level have you set?

How long did you wait?

It was the default optimization and i waited almost 15 minutes. Whereas it compiles immediately on my laptop.
