Asset Processor still hoses my machine in 1.8

Whatever it is doing to connect over the internet is hosing my machine for a significant amount of time. I can’t launch programs, I can’t surf the web, and it is not even starting to process jobs yet. Eventually, after a long wait, it gives my computer back and kicks in the job processing. I made note of this issue back in 1.2 and 1.3 but had hoped 1.8 would have fixed it. Unfortunately, it’s still an issue.

In addition, Webroot (my anti-virus program) went nuts during the install asking me every few seconds if it was ok to let Lumberyard proceed installing.

Also, this forum could use an “Asset Processor” tag. :slight_smile:

Have you tried killing the virus scanner while running Lumberyard? Virus software causing issues is a known problem. Let me know if disabling the virus scanner then running the Asset Processor does or does not address the issue and I’ll file a ticket.
