Using: IDEA build 813 on Windows XP Professional
Can you tell me what IDEA is doing when I open a new project and I get the dialog that reads "Optimizing Performance. Please wait...".
I thought it was copying all the jars referenced by my project to its system cache and so I disabled it by using the "-Didea.jars.nocopy=true" setting at IDEA startup. This seemed to work once. However, when I changed the target JDK using the "Project Properties", it went through the "Optimizing...." stuff over again. The same thing happens when opening a new project, say using the File > Re-open menu.
This optimization takes forever (several minutes) and during this time it takes over the CPU.
Is there a way to side-step this "optimization"?
