Christian Lenz commented on NETBEANS-1232:

I can understand your point [~lkishalmi] will try to provide more information. 
First one to say here, this feature is needed, because it doesn't make any 
sense to clean your dir from one to another IDE. A lot of people, don't want to 
edit there settings again and again like setting spaces, colors, code 
completion settings, etc. from one version to another. A lot of people don't 
want to have a clean/fresh/new install of NetBeans and edit there settings 
again, after they did it for your needs and used half an hour or more to set it 
up. This is not working. I know that this sounds unproductive but this is a 
real case. And yes I know that a third party plugin can broken it, but NetBeans 
should handle those "exceptions" too that this shouldn't take that long.

Anyway, I added my settings from 11.1 because it happens for the daily build 
too, that it takes longer than expected to import settings, when I start 
NetBeans daily build for the very first time (no cache dir, no user dir).

Here is my NetBeans 11.1 environment:

Product Version: Apache NetBeans IDE 11.1
Updates: Updates available to version NetBeans 8.2 Patch 2
Java: 11.0.2; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 11.0.2+9-LTS
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 11.0.2+9-LTS
System: Windows 10 version 10.0 running on amd64; Cp1252; de_DE (nb)
User directory: C:\Users\Chrl\AppData\Roaming\NetBeans\11.1
Cache directory: C:\Users\Chrl\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache\11.1

Will add a screenshot of my plugins, if thats help. What info do you need more?

> I opened NetBeans 9.0 for the first time and it asks me whether I want to 
> import my settings from 8.2 or not. I hit yes and I waited 5min (started at 
> 10:33 to import and ended at 10:38). This is way to long. I opened the 
> messages.log but there is no exception or whatever inside.
> I can't cancel that dialog or close it this is why I set it to critical. 
> NetBeans opened after 5min, after the import was finished.
> Cheers
