@Greg_O_Lone, Based on an old posting, I tried switching that from Default (both applications were set to default) to Moderate, and then just for fun, to Aggressive. The exact same thing happens. I’ve also left the compiler for approximately 20 minutes, with it remaining frozen. I’ve attached a screenshot of the frozen application.
Interestingly, the compile fails when it reaches the Styles. However, when I remove the style and any reference to it, it fails anyways at what appears to be the next step, so I’m doubting it has anything to do with the styles. This happened on both applications.
When I look at the Event viewer, it says: The program Xojo.exe version 22.214.171.124753 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Security and Maintenance control panel.
When I look at the Security and Maintenance control panel it says the following, though I’m not sure that is the crash, or because I forced the Xojo to close:

What I do notice, is that the “compile directory” is not created, so I’m wondering if it is failing there. I’ve checked permissions and that is all ok. I’ve run Xojo as Administrator with the same results
I’ve found no evidence that something called houdiniassistant is running on my computer while I’m compiling (saw in another thread that houdiniassistant is the compiler). Interesting, when I look at what is running, it shows that Xojo is using zero CPU…so nothing is happening. The memory stays consistent, no growth or decrease.
As well, it freezes at the “link” step, and even if I leave it for almost 90 minutes, there is no change.
Have you covered the basics?
-Clear the building caches (Edit - Options - Building)
-Close Xojo (make sure to kill all the processes) and reopen it
-Delete the target folder where the compiled app will be
-Restart the PC
-Uninstall Xojo and reinstall it
Right, so to me no existence of HoudiniAssistant means that the compile process is being prevented from starting altogether. As I mentioned before, check to make sure your AntiVirus software isn’t causing problems.
We’ve had this effect, too.
It only occured on our company provided machines, not on private ones.
So it must have been some combination of Windows 10 configuration.
This is the Feedback Case about this issue: <https://xojo.com/issue/61314> Windows 10: Building hangs for all BuildTargets that use the LLVM Compiler
Xojo tried hard to figure out what prevented their build process to work. As a result they have fixed this with Xojo 2020r2.
Since you’re (having to) use 2019r1.1 - we got something from Xojo support that helped and even worked with 2019r1.1 for us.
Your best chance is to contact their support and ask about that Feedback case mentioned.
