    xDx Designer PADS vx1.2 very slow on open project or create new project

    nicola.fiorucci

      Hi, i have installed PADS VX1.2. xDx designer start very fast but when i try to open project or just click to File-> new Project it takes minutes to respond.

      I have windows 7 Pro SP1.

      I was trying to set-up this new version of xDxdesigner with our server library so at the moment nothing is configured on xDxdesigner so i don't think it's a network problem.

       

      Thanks

          Hi Nicola,

           

          I believe the license checkout doesn't happen until you try to open or start a project.  Check your license setup, go to (in my case) C:\MentorGraphics\PADSVX.1.2\MGC_HOME.ixn\bin and run PCLS_OK.exe to see what licenses you are pointing too.  Remove any unnecessary license pointers as anything extra can slow you down drastically.  Be sure to check for anything using the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable as even if it isn't a Mentor license it can still slow you down, in this case find out what software is using it and move it to the correct Daemon variable.

           

          Hope this helps.
