Vensim PLE 8.2.1 takes up to a minute to open on Mac Boot Camp

Post by petsmiles »

Hi there, I installed Vensim PLE on the Windows side of my Mac, and I'm confused by how long it takes to open the program. It takes only a second to open on any other Windows system I've used, and my Mac itself takes just a second on my MacOS side. I don't see the task manager doing anything prior to booting. It's like my Boot Camp is stalling for up to a minute before deciding to finally open Vensim PLE. Has anyone experienced this?

This sounds like something that happens when antivirus checks block opening, with some delay due to network or server latency. Any chance of that?

Hi Tom, that was exactly it! When I disconnect from wifi, Vensim boots up right away! Can't seem to nail down what's causing it though. It wasn't the firewall and I turned off what I could in virus protection.
