Cura 2.6.2 and 2.7 runs EXTREMELY slow on PC

Hi, I'm not connected to Ultimaker and I don't use Windows but I do have a suggestion. As you sound like you are desperate for a solution why don't you install Virtual Box, then install a basic Linux system in a VM and then try the Linux version of Cura? What have you got to lose apart from a few more hours of downloading?

kenjancef, could you post your logs somewhere? Perhaps there's a clue in there. Please use pastebin.com (or similar) instead of pasting the logs into a post here.

Hmm... never thought of that... might be a better solution. I just thre in a Radeon R7 260 this morning, and it wasn't lightning fast, but better than before. I'll try the new video card for a day or so to see, but may just try a VM ans well. Thanks for the tip!

Where do I find the logs? I looked quick but didn't find anything. At the risk of sounding weird, even though I am a computer tech I've never used PasteBin. Is there anything in the logs that I could look for to let me know if there's trouble? I'll still figure out PasetBin though.

Thanks...
