We've just started using Atmel Studio for a project here at work, and we are having trouble with how it interacts with DefendPoint, which is our corporate security software. Rebuilding our code takes almost 10 minutes on my i5-7300U. We tried it on a non-connected laptop that didn't have the security software, and it took less than 30 seconds. I think it has something to do with how Atmel Studio spawns sub-tasks for every object it builds, and DefendPoint needs to check them out and grant them permissions to run every single time.
I'm sure we can't be the only ones trying to use Atmel Studio in a corporate setting. Has anyone else had any issues like this? Is there an easy way to fix it? The virtual machine idea was a no-go with IT.
