How long does your IDE take to fire up?

Hi gang,

Always struck me that the IDE takes, like, for*ever* to fire up. Today I timed it at 55sec from hitting the icon in my taskbar to an empty sketch.

Anyone feel like timing theirs just so I can see if mine's slow?

(IDE 1.0.1, Windows 7 Pro, Core Duo 2GHz with 2GB RAM.)

TIA,

Jim

Under two seconds (Vista 64, 3GHz Core2duo, 3GB).

I thought the EU had banned Vista along with lead-free-solder :P

I don’t know. It’s one of my work PCs. It came from HP with Vista on it.

Well it certainly loads the IDE an order of magnitude faster than mine!

Have you got Bluetooth enabled?

AWOL: Have you got Bluetooth enabled?

Yeah...

I tried again with it off... halved the time, but still 25secs or so.

Try disabling any real-time anti-virus stuff you have enabled.

Not madly keen on doing that, but will do so as a test... thanks.
