We have the same problem (and with the rubber) and we are running the latest versions, we had no problem's before. I haven't really got anywhere with technical support but then being totally honest part of the problem is with my teaching staff who don't do anything when I give them a list of troubleshooting things to go through and then they don't bother and just complain it's still slow.
a) cleaning the local temp directories (the software uses these to process the contents of the pages)
b) Changing colour depth to 16 bit (this was what the software was written for natively)
c) turning off any 'Page Turn' affects (right click on the 'Next Page' button - may also be that theyve set a certain 'speed' as well in here which will control 'how quick' the page turns)
The other stuff about ensuring latest version, and checking the 'Hardware Accelleration' may also apply - so could be worth checking those too.
Failing that, I think the best advice would be to see if it does the same in Inspire (which hopefully it wont :-) )
I know this thread is REALLY old but we're seeing the same issues. I had reports from a number of teachers today that said it took forever for ActivInspire to load and switching between tools takes forever. I have updated a few machines to the latest software/firmware but they are having the issue as well. Some machines are at the logo screen for a few minutes before the flames move up and load the program.
There are quite a few variables here though I would recommend starting with a fresh instillation of Inspire if you have not already. Also, Inspire can be especially slow to open the first time it is launched on a system, just to confirm is this a consistent and reoccurring issue on these systems?
Have you tried clearing the local temp files?
Have you checked your system usage in Task manager. Slow load times / slow response can be related to a lack of available resources.
Did you redirect any of the Inspire directories at install or with an Admin.ini file?
I would also recommend testing one of the systems with a Newly created local user account (with full admin access) as the slowdown could be related to the user specific files or user rights.
I will check on the first few suggestions, but I can tell you about the last one.
I have a teacher that is in a test workgroup I created with no application restrictions, however he is not a full admin. None of the teachers will get full admin, but in his case he also had severe slowdown. I was told by a few of our teachers this has been going on for a few years. I just started here a few months ago but it seems to be an intermittent issue.
See my thread for information that might help
Time lag when choosing new pen type
We do redirect appdata so I tried the fix but it didnt work for me
ActivInspire is very very slow to load here but that is because they have it in ActivPrimary look-alike mode - in ActivStudio it loads much more quickly
I guess I should add that we're all on Mac and most of the teachers with boards are on 10.6.8. I will be upgrading them all to ML over the next few weeks. I'm not sure if my predecessor setup app redirection.
Ok I have another issue.
Starting ActivInspire is taking at least 7-10 minutes for teachers. Apparently this also has been going on for some time and they just sort of "expect it". Any ideas what the heck is going on here?
