I've installed IntelliJ IDEA 13.1.2 on my Windows 7 64 bit laptop, but I am finding that each compilation / make step is very slow.
I have tried a simple hello world console app in both Scala and Java both of which take around a minute to build. I have tried using both the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the app along with the corresponsing Java runtimes. I have also tried downgrading to the previous IDEA version (13.0). Nothing seems to have helped. A similar Scala/Java app in Eclipse or Scala with raw SBT compiles an order of magnitude faster on the same machine.
I suspect that I'm missing something fundamental here. Can anybody advise?
