Program is slow to start and to use.
Why and what can be done?
Sounds like a network issue
check the following:
1. Is using a data folder on a distant machine (like a server) or in local machine?
For optimal performance, best to have the application installed and operating on a local computer. When installed in a server environment, network traffic can have a negative affect on the speed of the application. Another words, the application will become sluggish to use.
2. What are the Paths in Preferences Dialog?
The Default location should have been :
Program: C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\Engineering\AutoPIPE Vessel_40.04.00.008
Other: C:\Users\Public\Documents\AutoPIPE Vessel_40.04.00.008
See image below:
Other file paths can be used/assigned, however this may impact the application's speed.
