Opening Times

Hi,

 

We are an IT Company that currently has a client that is waiting a long time 3+ minutes to open a drawing. They currently have quite a powerful machine, where the data resides on a server. They have moved the data to a laptop at home which isn't not nearly as powerful (i5/4GB/No GFX) - and opens in 26 seconds.

 

We have moved the data from the server, to the local drive, still opens in 3+ minutes.

 

When opening the file, Solidworks bumps up to 1.2GB Memory Usage, but only utilizes one core which hits 100%

 

We are starting to think that it could be related to Windows 8.1, and would like to confirm before we roll them back to Windows 7.

 

We have tried:

 

- Creating a RAM disk and putting the files in and opening

- Removed the Pagefile - Solidworks had bumped the page file up to 32GB, we have set it to 8GB Static

- Disabled Antivirus

- Re-installed Solidworks

 

Computer Specs.

 

2 x Intel Xeon E5-2630 2.4Ghz

32GB DDR4 2133Mhz

Samsung Evo 840 500GB

NVIDIA Quadro K4000
