Game Maker Studio 2 - Building Forever

Hello, I have also had, like many others, the problem that when compiling the project, it stays in "Building" forever and my games do not run, even if it is just an empty room.


Here I leave a picture of how it looks

and what the compiler shows

As you can see, the compiler gets stuck on that line.

Did you try any of the suggestions that would have been offered in those threads by the many others who have had this issue before?

Disable any antivirus / system protection software.
Check that your Windows user account has Admin access.
Update to the latest version and test if it still happens.
etc etc etc

Yes! I was able to find a post where they explained the causes and I saw that an antivirus background process was affecting ... I uninstalled several things, updated drivers and now if it compiles correctly ...

Although I also uninstalled Unity ... I don't know if it also had any influence. I hope not.

Thank you! :')

It won't have been anything to do with Unity, it will have been your antivirus.

If you still want to use your antivirus you can re-enable it and whitelist the required files/folders so that GMS2 still works correctly.

Glad you got it sorted.
