Slow load on my best PC

Post by gordol »

I have XnView MP (currently Version 1.4.2 64bits (Jan 23 2023)) installed on three PCs, and on my newest and bestest one, XnView takes about a full minute to load and become usable, the other two it's pretty much instant. I can get the full details of the "other two" if needed, but nutshell is they are both a few years old, one is an almost 6 year old i3 based system with 16G of RAM, a spinning hard drive and Win10, cannot be updated to 11. The other other one is a 3 year old i5 based laptop with 8 or 16 G of RAM and an SSD, was Win10 is now Win11.

The one with the issue is less than 6 months old Dell Inspiron 3910, Win11, i7, 16G RAM and an SSD. Other info can be provided as needed.

It does not matter if I have XnView set to open on the last folder, a specific folder, or no folder at all.

could you try to change debug=2 in xnview.ini, you'll have a debug window. Please tell me where you have the delay in this window?

This is no longer happening with the 1.4.3 update.

Dealing with slow load times on your new Dell Inspiron 3910 must be frustrating, especially considering its specs. Have you tried checking for any background processes or conflicting software that might be causing the delay? Ensuring that your drivers and XnView version are up to date could also help improve performance.
It's interesting to note that the issue doesn't seem to be related to specific folder settings in XnView.
