Inventor 2014 Pro stupidly slow all of a sudden

I have a problem with Inventor pro 2014, whereas it has recently gotten unbearably slow all of a sudden.

 

It will hang for anywhere between 5 seconds and 2-3 minutes whenever I right click a part in an assembly, whenever I try to run a New or Save and Replace command, whenever I try and move an unconstrained part in an assembly. Basically, it'll hang just about everytime I try and do something with it. The rest of the computer remains responsive and snappy while Inventor chugs away d

 

I have so far taken the steps to install SP1, hoping it would fix the issue. It stopped doing it for a day or two, then went right back to being slow as heck.

 

I checked my graphics card driver and saw that it was not certified with Inventor, so I downloaded and installed the correct one. That fixed the issue for another day or two then it came right back.

 

My IT department has run every test imaginable on my computer and came up with nothing. I'm guessing they are right seeing as the rest of the computer functions perfectly well.

 

I'm at my wits end, this is costing me precious time, for every 30 second operation I'm losing up to 3 minutes watching the program hang.

 

Am I the only one having this problem?

 

Computer specs:

i7-2600 @ 3.4Ghz

16GB RAM

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

nVidia Quadro FX3800 running on 307.45 driver downloaded off this very website.

Sometimes restarting the application will make it stop, but otherwise, it always happens.

You are not the only one. I have just upgraded from 2012 to 2014 last week and I am experiencing the identical issue. I hope a better solution will be posted soon. Loosing a lot of time.

Hi

I use 2014 since RTM release and I've seen no performance degradation

You can try to set your hardware setting to performance, maybe this will help

try a different project, I have had 5 second freezes, every 20 seconds or so because the project was looking for something that either didnt exist or had moved

It does not make any difference. I have already tried multiple projets and all exhibit the same behaviour. It'll sometimes go away on its own then slowly come back as I work through the day. Sometimes restarting Inventor will fix it, other times it won't.

We have had something similar here when saving an excel file to update an assembly and parts.

 

What should take 30 seconds, takes about 15 minutes.  Sometimes the problem does not even happen...

 

It turned out to be a conflict with our Anti-Virus Software and IV 2014 on that machine.  Turn it off and it IV 2014 Works as it should and at normal speed.

 

HOWEVER, on a similar machine we have had no problems with the SAME anti-virus software and smae IV2014 set-up.

 

Just a suggestion, but try turning your Antivirus off (At your own risk of course) and see if the problem persists or if it goes away...
