A looong time to open
February 25, 2003 10:48AM
I have two PCs: an old and obsolete Pentium III with 256MB RAM running Win98SE and a brand new Pentium IV 2,2 GHz (512 MB RAM, SB Audigy Platinum and many other goodies) running XP Home Ed. On the first, CoolPlayer loads in a few milliseconds and works just fine; on the second, it takes some 25-30 seconds to start (I'm not kidding!). At the moment, I have very few applications installed and, before opening CoolPlayer, I *always* turn off (not just disable) my Antivirus; no apps are running in the background (only standard XP processes). Any ideas? Thanks.

Are you running the new 209 build (it has background ID3 tag reading which significantly speeds up startups if you have a large playlist)

Yes, I am. BTW, if this information may be useful, before exiting CoolPlayer, I *always* clear the playlist... so, when I start it, it should be somehow "clean... I'll try and download the brand new build (2.10).
