Cura 4.11 is VERY slow, ??

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.11 is VERY slow, ??

New to Cura, heard it was the best.  Unfortunately, the program is unreasonably slow to open. Take about 1min.  When finally open, most of the program operates well, EXCEPT when opening the "preferences" options dialog... It literally take 1-2 minutes!  Once that's open, it's another painful few moments to get the "materials" or "profiles" sections open.  Obviously, this is very frustrating and time consuming for a first time user who's trying to dial in settings.  What is going on?? There's no way this is the top 3d printing slicer software. 

 

And before you ask, here are my computer specs:

Windows 10

AMD 5900x

64GB DDR4

RTX 3080ti

All Cura related software is on a Samsung 970EVO SSD

... so it's not the computer.

    I cannot say what's the problem with your installation, but I can say that it is not normal. 

     

    Maybe some additional software on your computer, like antivirus or something like that?

    DO you have any mapped network drives that may or may not be currently connected?

    I do have mapped network drives!  I'll check this out and report back.

    To follow up: This must be exactly it!  I'm opening Cura "as administrator" now, and it seems to be working fine.  Thank you!
