I am using InstallShield 12 SP2 and InstallShield Collaboration. I have 5 DIM files included in my Base MSI project. When I do a build the CPU spikes to 100% and stays there for 15 minutes while it collects all of the files out of the DIMs. I have used FileMon to watch what is going on and it reads a file, there is a pause of a few seconds, and then it reads the next file. It takes forever to do a single build. Also the memory usage on the isdev process goes way up during the build.

Is this expected behavior?
