C++ compilation/build takes an extremely long time


I am currently learning Unreal and running into an issue when compiling C++ code. Both when I build in Visual Studio/Rider or try to press the compile button in the UE4.26 Editor the build execution is stuck on “0>Building 4 actions with 4 processes…” for a very long time.

I changed a minimal amout of code from the default first person C++ template and the problem presisted when i removed it and tried compiling the template as it was originally.

While i was writing this post the execution actually completed successefully but took a ridicoilously long amount of time. In the online tutorial I was following to make this change this process took seconds whilst mine is stuck for a good 10 to 20 minutes and it doesnt seem feesible to wait this long?


I am not sure what to do. Does anyone know how I could solve this issue?

Many Thanks
