Using Inventor 2013, on a solid machine and after applying the Update 2, everything has gone sideways. Trying to open a new presentation file or modify any presentation file and the application becomes unresponsive and it starts writing a bunch of adsklib files in the \Appdata\local\temp\MaterialLibraries_PID_604. We have aeverything on a network share. This usually happens for about 30 minutes and then it becomes responsive again. MAchine has been thoroughly tested and burned in. This happens across our fleet of Dells and custom workstations.

Are the templates also shared in network folder for your environment? Could you provide more details?
Copy the files to a local machine, and create a new Project file for the local machine and see if the problem continues. Chances are you could have a network issue.
We did, and that did solve the problem however i want to know why Inventor spits out all those temp adsklib files and slows down incredibly.
Inventor is timing out and creating the log files as designed. You problem is not with Inventor but with your network.
Please try mapping a network drive to the location of your templates instead of using a UNC path & then defininng that in your ipj file.
We've had reports from a couple of customers with templates on the network, in a file structure that contains a lot of other data, which results in performance issues.
Hope this helps,
We have tried that and it causes a minor improvement but nothing substantial. I have determined it is a network issue and not a Inventor issue. Thanks for all your help.
It's not a network issue
I have the same problem and can replicate it on a local environment
The problem occurs when you have mapped a material/apperancy-library in your project file.
I have created a custom material library file from migrating a 2012 design data but you will get the same result using a copy of the InventorMaterialLibrary.adsklib and then I mapped the file in the projecte file. This will make inventor really slow. And when I examined the activity on the Inventor process I saw that inventor creates more than 1000 copies of the materia library file in my temp folder.
To replicate this error do following steps.
And yes, I have installed Servicepack 1.1
It is not recommended you make a hard copy of Inventor Material Library and rename it for futher use. The issue with this workflow is that the newly copied library file will still be recognized as Inventor Material Library. It can confuse Inventor in certain operations.
I have seen the behavior you described here from time to time without doing the replicating Inventor Material Library workflow. Unfortunately, I have not yet found a persistent way to reproduce it. I want to make sure you are seeing the same behavior as I am seeing. Please help me answer the following questions.
1. When Inventor behaves slowly, does creating a line in a simple sketch takes a long time?
2. After it happens, does rebooting or restarting Inventor help?
3. Does uninstalling the service pack and reinstalling it help?
4. If you start a different Inventor release like R2012 or earlier and close it and then restart R2013, does it help?
Please let me know what you find out.
Many thanks for your help!
