Just a shot in the dark:
Memory, File Cache Settings
Would increase change anything?
Some more informations you could give:
- are you using FM15 32-bit OR 64-bit version? You could install both and compare performance.
- which (if) PlugIns are in use?
- are the PlugIns all 64-bit ready?
And since some of my customers recently struggled with this essentials:
Your Harddisk should have at least 10%, better 20% free capacity.
Thanks for the response.
FM 64 bit. All plugins are 64 bit, and using NRG ship manager and 360 works email and 360 works plastic.
Hard Drive has 25% available space.
Memory has been increased to max did not change and then set it back to default amount.
Let's hope someone else chime's in with more experiences with Windows OS. I work on Mac with a virtual machine for Win 7, 8.1, Win 10 but see no slow performance at all.
Deactivate all PlugIns could be worth a try to narrow this down.
You can also open Win Task Manager to monitor any CPU and Memory activities during that "slow down".
There's a known bug with performance slow down when Script Workspace is open.
Thanks for the input. I will try that.
I'm all ears here - but I was afraid to ask for the compatibility... only Win 7 Pro/enterprise are supported (hate that answer...)
Since it takes that much time when performing a menue item, I don't think that it's the memory/rendering issue
- move all plugins out, try without _any_ plugin
- disable network (on some Win machines, there is a button for that)
If the HD is too low, FileMaker will tell You that there is a problem with the temp-file
