I have recently re-installed WinXP and now FTM 2012 is nearly unusable. Unfortunately, before I could test FTM, the mandatory update was installed. The update corrected lots of functional issues but FTM2012 launch time is now about 1.5 min. I don't have any hard times, but I believe before I made the changes, launch time was about 30 second. After launch, If I click the Sources menu, the screen is not totally populated for 1 min. 45 seconds (a REALLY long time). Is anyone having a similar issue since the update?
Edit: I forgot to mention sync now takes about 4 hours!
Edit: Oct 16, 2012 Just to close the loop in this thread: My problem with a SLOW FTM is confirmed to be my old WinXP installation. Removed everything and re-installed and now there is joy in Mudville tonight. Launch time is now about 15 seconds; Time to the Source menu is now about 5 seconds; a small sync completes in about 5 minutes not hours.
