Extremely slow add-ins loading speed

Hi, I use Solidworks 2019 with Network license.


The startup time for Solidworks is around 1min. And for the add-ins, it takes really long time to load. For example, Simulation takes about 9mins, Toolbox takes about 7mins, and Motion Study takes over 10mins.

I wonder if it's because of the network license issue, since it also takes around 5 mins to load license manager if I want to borrow a license(like Simulation Premium). But,

1. I think Toolbox and Motion Study do not require an extra license? Simulation sometimes needs it.

2. To start the Solidworks it takes just 1 min. If it's the license issue, it should not take like 6-10 mins.


My laptop should not be that bad, as it's less than a year.

It's Dell Precision 7530, Quadro P2000, i7-8850H, 16G RAM, 512G SSD. 


Is there any way to troubleshoot it? Thanks!
