phpstorm 2016.3.1 open very slowly

Hello, after I updated phpstorm at 2016.3.1 it open very slowly. Software works very good but when I want open this wait very much..1-2min with all files.

My desktop: i7 16gb ram gtx 960 and ssd

Also I have same problem in laptop (same specifications)

I use windows 10

What can I do?



Could you run File > Invalidate Caches/Restart > Invalidate and Restart, please, and then check if the issue reoccurs after a couple of restarts?


I did it but nothing, I reinstalled windows, nothing change. I hate wait 2min for open phpstorm...


Please restart PhpStorm, collect the IDE log, upload it somewhere and send us the resulting link, maybe something comes up there.


Do you have any custom entries in your %systemroot%/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file?

Anything related to localhost or there?


I never edited hosts, I reinstalled windows because I tought windows is problem but very slowly

It's normal, PhpStorm needs resources to load.

Speaking of the original issue, I can see that sometimes PhpStorm can't verify response from the license server, and thus doesn't proceed with loading.

What is the license server you use?


For the 2016.3.2 log I can see only one "slow" loading, and it's caused by the fact that PhpStorm can't verify the license server. If you can, please try registering with a product key or a JB account.
