I have moved a SH2A project from the HEW to the e2studio (Version 4.x and now to the latest version 5.3). The project includes about 750 files and is building fine so far...also the incremental build is working.
But one thing on the build process is very annoying. Each time a build is started the makefile is generated and this process is very, very slow (for our project it takes about 2 minutes). This also happens if there is nothing to build (no source file has changed). I could of course disable the generation of the makefile in project settings to speed up the build process, but this could be risky, if after some changes the build is not done the correct way.
Is there a way to speedup the generating of the makefile ? In my estimation the generation of the makefile should be much faster (for example in the HEW a build process started immediately and I guess the HEW also used some kind of "internal" makefile to check the dependencies).

The "Enable parallel build" is available to speed things up. Have you enabled this?

I've got the same/similar problem. Moved from E2studio 5.4 to V6.0 and the problem appeared. The makefile generation blocks for a few minutes. My project is for an RX130, using the Renesas RX compiler V2.6. It consists of roughly 60 C source files in various folders and sub-folders. C++ not used. I had to move back to V5.4 and the build works normally again. I haven't tried whether a new project setup works in V6.0 compared to a converted project from V5.4 to V6.0.
