Opening & Printing from eDrawings

I'm having a problem opening Solidworks drawings in eDrawings. The time it takes to open a drawing is painfully slow. I open these drawings out of the PDMWorks vault and I only have problems opening Solidworks. (I also run autocad and cadkey...neither of which I'm having problems with.) It doesn't matter the size of the assembly, it takes anywhere from 1 to 2 minutes just to get the file open. After that, printing is just as bad. It slows down my whole machine and I cannot work on anything else while trying to open/print a drawing.

Has anyone had this problem? Or can anyone offer any advice? Thanks in advance.
