Does anyone eles have issue with Inventor load time? It take 2 - 2 1/5 minutes for our Inventor 2012 to just load on a Windows 7 PC, 64 bit.

What are your PC Specs ? The machine in my signature launches 2012 Pro in under 10 seconds, however my old PC which is a Dual core AMD Opteron @ 3 GHz with 4Gb of RAM, 7200 RPM hard drive and Vista 64 bit takes around 90 seconds.

 

Regards

No problems or issues here. IV2012 loads even faster than IV2011.

 

Load times are directly related to your hardware and primarily your hard-drive. IV2012 loads in 16 seconds on my home machine and 5-6 seconds on my work machine.

 

A lot of big-box stores will lure people into buying machines where all they publish about the hard-drive is it's capacity. Not RPM, Access/Seek or Data Transfer rates.

Clean all your temp directories and caches, use something like CCleaner from: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

 

Then run your disc defrag tools that are shipped with Microsoft O/S.

Hi! To be more specific, I think you are talking about the wait time when you try to open a document right after you start Inventor for the first time, right?

In R2012, Inventor delays loading DLLs essential to opening Inventor files until the user tries to open a file. Inventor will start up promptly after you click on Inventor icon. Then, if you try to open an Inventor file for the first time, these DLLs will need to be loaded, which takes some time for the first open doc. For any subsequent document, load time should be fairly fast.

Thanks!

Actually I am talking about the time it takes to just open Inventor, from the time we double click the Icon on our desktop to the time the entire program is loaded.

Thanks

That is interesting. In theory, the start time should be must faster than before. Do switch between two different Inventor releases on a regular basis? When your last run Inventor is a different release of Inventor you are trying to launch, the re-registering process could take a bit more time.

Thanks!

The time inventor uses to open in both 2011 and 2012, are within a few seconds. When opening a file first time after i opened inventor, the times are 10-15 seconds longer due to the dll loads as one of the above posts mentioned.

 

My hardware specs are:

 

Windows 7 64 bit

3.4 GHz. AMD Phenom II X4, 965 [ Black Edition ], 4x512 KB (L2 cache) + 6 MB (L3 cache)

8 GB DDR3, PC3-10600 Kit

64 GB Turbo SSD Harddisk (Inventor installed on this disk)

and a 1 TB - 7200 RPM, 32MB memory buffer, NoiseGuard™ and SilentSeek™. for the data.

AMD HD 6870 with 1 GB DDR5.

We are on Inventor 2010 in our production environment, which it takes approx 25-30 seconds to open Inventor.

But what we are doing is testing Inventor 2012 and it is taking about 2 minutes to open Inventor everytime.
