QT Creator 3.3.0 / QT 5.4.0 on Win7 Pro 64 bit Very slow start up.



  • I just downloaded the QT package and ran QT Creator last evening. It was dead slow to start. There was no change. A web search shows this to be a persistent problem over more than 4 years. The "solved" issues seem to work on Linux systems and not on Windows, so I don't hold out much hope. Unless you have a good and immediate solution to this, I will abandon QT - quite sadly I might add.

    Note that I'm running with 4GB of memory on a dual core AMD processor.
    Good luck.



  • Hi,

    Could you provide a link about that "solved" issue?



  • Virus scanner maybe?

    My favourite text editor in windows (UltaEdit) was slowed down to a 2 min startup time a few years ago. It turns out the virus scanner was the cause.
