Eclipse Hangs on Start: CDT Scanner Discovery [message #1776046] Thu, 09 November 2017 21:54

I'm running Eclipse Neon on Windows 7 primarily for Perl development using EPIC.

Eclipse had been up and running. I tried to run a Perl script and it hung while "building the project" even though there is nothing to build. It was hanging on a call to dmake.exe.

I shutdown Eclipse and restarted, but it hangs during start while executing:
Discover compiler built-in language settings
CDT Scanner Discovery: Invoking Command: gcc -E -P -v -dD C:/...metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.cdt.mangedbuilder.core/spec.c

I don't have full control over what other applications are being installed on my machine, nor the order of my path, so I have created at bat file to redefine my path before starting Eclipse with no success.

Can someone tell me what this step is doing? Why it is required at start? And why doesn't it progress?

Thanks,
Dan
