I had a similar problem where SL2 hanged up when publishing for LMS. And the cancel button didnt´t work leaving me with the only option to crash SL2.

However since the last update the cancel button works. But only on the 2nd or sometimes 3rd time.  When the publish is sucessfully canceled the publish usally work instantly when you press publish again.

I´m very glad that I no longer need to crash SL2 all the time. :)

I was having a similar problem: in SL2, publishing a file for LMS caused the system to hang. I would have to cancel, then try again - it sometimes saved OK on the second attempt. I'd been through the whole reinstall process with no luck, but then read a report from someone else who thought the long file string was the issue. My files are buried deep in our company's network, so I copied them over to my Articulate folder on my C drive, and it completely solved all of the publishing problems I was having. May be worth trying if you are still having issues.
