Introduction

It can happen that IAR Embedded Workbench responds very slowly OR it is denied permission OR a timeout is reached before it can do it's job.

Possible reason

An antivirus live scan can slow down IAR Embedded Workbench as described above.

Suggestions

There are three folders that can be added to the exception list for the antivirus realtime scan feature:

  • The installation folder
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\IAR Systems
  • C:\Documents and Settings\ <USERNAME> \Application Data\IAR Embedded Workbench

Note that <USERNAME> means the name you are logged in as and the name of the third folder varies, depending on the Windows OS in use.
