[Solved] LOeclipse and hanging idlc.exe and/or ucpp.exe

I have decided to attempt to create my own extension, and predictably I have been running from one newbie problem to another, but this one I can't figure out.

When I create a new UNO-IDL project, it hangs on refresh at 5%. It turns out this is caused by ucpp.exe and idlc.exe seemingly doing nothing (at least it is showing no activity even for 10 - 30 minutes). If I kill it, then the progress bar goes to next step, but of course whatever was supposed to be done by idlc.exe and ucpp.exe duo, is not done (so I get errors and no * file).
I am doing this on windows, and I have no idea how, if this is caused by bad installation of SDK (located at C:\LOSDK\6.2.5\) or some other factor.

In the error log I can see, that eclipse is running this command:

Running command: idlc -O "build\urd\org\libreoffice\example" -I "C:\LOSDK\6.2.5\sdk\idl" -I "idl" idl\org\libreoffice\example\LOHW2.idl with env: [...] from dir: C:\Users\JulianR\eclipse-workspace\LOHW2

I am running on Win 7 x64 pro with UAC disabled, LO with corresponding SDK and eclipse for java developers 2019-06 with latest version of LOeclipse from marketplace. I did run the setsdkenv_windows.bat on current windows session.

Those tools also happen to hang when trying to run the starter project (although killing the ucpp.exe does allow the extension to be installed and work within LO).

Anyone knows what may be causing this problem?

There is a problem/bug on Windows with sdk for LO version 6+, to develop extensions using current version of LOeclipse use LO version 5.x (tested with and, there is a bug with parsing datatypes though, for example string gets parsed to java/lang/String and obviously needs to be replaced with just String, though this problem also exists on current version in linux)

*Edit - The problem also seems to be gone with version
