Managing a slow IAR Embedded Workbench
Technical Note 40547
In some cases, IAR Embedded Workbench responds very slowly, or is denied permission, or a timeout is reached before it can do its job.
An antivirus real-time scan can slow down IAR Embedded Workbench as described above. One solution can be to add the following suggested folders to the exception list for the antivirus real-time scan feature:
- The IAR Embedded Workbench installation folder
%APPDATA%\IAR Embedded Workbench
%LOCALAPPDATA%\IAR Embedded Workbench
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\IAR Systems
If IAR Embedded Workbench responds slowly, try excluding the suggested folders from the antivirus real-time scan feature.
