Created attachment 148013 [details]

I know that this has happened before - all other bug reports say it's fixed, but this is still happening for me:

I already had Cygwin installed, so I added the gcc, make etc. packages and added my cygwin/bin folder to my path. So these tools are perfectly available and runnable through my command line (both the windows one and the cygwin terminal).

I tried it with Netbeans 8.0 first, but couldn't create a project because the IDE was apparently still trying to figure out my build tools. I then uninstalled 8.0 and installed the nightly build which appears to have the same problem.

The versions of my build tools:
GCC 4.8.3
g++ 4.8.3
make 4.0

My java version is 1.8.0_05

I can see that it's doing something since the memory usage is going up steadily until the GC kicks in. Maybe that's just the default behavior though.

I don't know if that helps you, but I profiled the IDE for a couple of seconds (from lowest memory usage until the GC run). You can find it attached to this post.

Hope this helps!

Same here.

I use MinGW and Cmake. Sometimes Netbeans gets stuck at "Validating Tool collection on localhost". I have to kill Netbeans with Task Manager and restart it.
