Hi,
I have grown a little bit frustrated with the compile time when deploying apps to an iOS device for testing. I currently run Delphi 10.2 on a Windows 7 machine, which is connected to a mac.
I am wondernig if the performance would be better if I started running Win7 in a VM from my mac instead (Fusion or Parallels). This way everything would happen on the same machine.
Is anybody doing this and can testify to whether or not this will remedy my issue?
Just to clarify, this is for deploying apps to an iOS device while programming and testing the application.

I doubt that the issue is to do with being on separate machines, depending on which part(s) are "slow". If it's the
compile/link time, that all occurs on the Windows machine anyway; deployment stages occur between Windows and Mac.

Just do a compile or build. Is that the part that is taking a particularly long time? What source files are being
compiled? (e.g. are you including paths to RTL/FMX source?). If your project is particularly large it will affect
compile time. Having project paths to units that are already compiled can significantly reduce compile time (and memory
usage).
