Unity 5.x freezes on importing assets on a new project (mac)

Hey All

Whenever I open any existing or new project in Unity 5.x on my mac it freezes at the importing assets window at 50%.

I can recreate this issue with this simple scenario:

  1. Create a new Unity project
  2. Create a new #C script (via Unity GUI)
  3. Save
  4. Quit Unity
  5. Open project <---- Freezes at this stage

I’ve wiped all traces of Unity and attempted re-installing with no luck – I’ve tried this with versions of 5.4, 5.3, 5.2, 5.1 and 5.0.

I’ve also granted full permissions to the project folder.

It’s clearly my system that’s at fault; any general direction to solve this would be helpful.


I have the same issue i just let it do its thing and load it it works for me maybe not you though @Haunty @caleb_penney
