REAL Studio does precompile plug-ins and if you enable the incremental compiler feature, it also stores compiled project items as files in a project cache folder. This works fine until you change the plug-ins. REAL Studio will see the change and precompile the new plug-ins. Still the project cache refers to the older plug-ins which will result in compilation and linking issues. We have listed the most common issues here:
The CheckCache plug-in checks on the IDE start whether the plug-in files are newer than the cache files. In that case it shows an alert. So this plug-in should protect you from a lot of issues.
