Re: What is your StartUp time when launching Inventor 2013?

Cold Boot about 20 secs.  Close and restart Inventor about 10 secs.  Both are also logging into vault when it starts up and that takes 2-3 secs.

 

That does seem a little slow.  Try unplugging the network and see what it does.

Ours takes about 20 seconds cold-boot (no Vault) to get the program running. Then when we open/create a part for the first time it takes an additional 20 seconds to load the rest of the program not loaded at first (add ins and junk).

Workstation - 8-10 seconds.   Vault is unloaded, network license, several add-ins disabled.  Slightly slower 10-15 seconds total) if it's the first start after a reboot.

 

Laptop (with SSD) - 3-5 seconds.  Standalone license, no vault, nothing disabled.  Doesn't matter if it's the first start or not.

Yeah, that's way too long and gotta do something about it.  Maybe observe the HDD LED/light to see if there is a long pause in between or it's continuously cranking along all the time.  Also look at the network blink/LED at the port or the network adapter's status utility/software for any activity/transaction.

(My current/old laptop: around 17 sec to the Welcome screen (cold), under 8 sec warm/restart, standalone type, no big numbers/jumps shown in the network utility monitor but small increments only as it logs into the Autodesk 360 or somewhere.)

Perhaps you could post your system specs?  That could have something to do with it.  What OS, drives, processor?

 

On my previous system, Win XP 32-bit, three year-old laptop with mechanical drive a cold start of Inventor often took over a minute.  Now (see below), it's in the 10 sec range.
