I am using PyCharm Community Edition 5.0.1
It was working fine till yesterday. But it has been stuck at 'Scanning files to index' for a very long time now. Since yesterday.
I have tried re-installing it, and also tried invalidating cache.
I can make changes to programs and use it as a text editor but unable to run any file. Can anyone help? Thanks.
Exclude the folders you do not want to index. You can do this by right-clicking the folder you want to exclude, then choose
Mark Directory As > Excluded and PyCharm will not index those files.
