After installing non-ADI software I now find CCES slow building my application.
This issue could be caused by the new software using the same licensing technology we incorporate into CCES, which is then setting an environment variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE. This causes CCES to initially search an incorrect path for a license, resulting in a delay at build time.
To work around this issue we would recommend that you set ANALOGD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable, which is specific to our tools, in your system. This can be done by following the procedure below:
Variable Name: ANALOGD_LICENSE_FILE
Variable Value (XP machine): <Install_Dir>\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Analog Devices\CrossCore Embedded Studio
Variable Value (Windows 7 machine): <Install_Dir>\ProgramData\Analog Devices\CrossCore Embedded Studio
You should now notice an improvement in the build time of your application.
