extremely slow startup

Answered

Hi,

the initial startup on my machine takes minutes.

Specs:Windows 7 Professional, i7-3770, 16GB, Idea Community 12.1.6, Java 1.7_40

I googled around but could not find a solution to my particular problem. In the log file I found some signficant intialization times (eg App initialization took 365865 ms ). I don't know if these time are relevant to the startup problem.

Any idea what might be causing this. I have the same problem with PyCharm.

Thanks,
Rainer

Please check the usual problems listed here: http://devnet.jetbrains.com/docs/DOC-192

Does it occur on every startup or just sometimes?

it's the very first startup after a I've turned on my computer that is by far the slowest. After that Idea starts up significantly faster.

I am currently exploring the AntiVirus option (McAfee in my case).

Thanks,
Rainer

I experience the same problem. The first startup after a reboot takes a whole life. Windows 8.1 x64.

By the way in Ubuntu it starts in few moments. PyCharm Community.

Could you please report an issue on YouTrack attaching logs folder zipped ("Help | Show Log in..."): http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issues/IDEA ?

My performance problem was with the Maven Architypes catalog. The first instance of IJ was very slow to load, adding second instance for other project made it barely usable and running a third project made it unusable. After much searching I was not able to find a resolution. I then compared running the projects on laptop and IJ was blisteringly fast and the difference was Maven Architypes. Hope this helps someone.

@Rainer Hilscher

 I have the exact same problem 

My specs are: windows 10, core i5 16GB RAM

How have you solved the problem? Can you please share?

Hello Sayed,

Do you use any antivirus software? Is it slow only at the first start?

Hi, guys. I'm experiencing the same problem. Win10, Core I5, 16G, Win10. At the first start I have INFO - .intellij.idea.IdeaApplication - App initialization took 50155 ms. The second start takes INFO - .intellij.idea.IdeaApplication - App initialization took 11182 ms . Is there an opened issue where should I post my logs/thread dumps etc? It seems that it downloads/initializes smth but I can't find the key in logs.

It's caused by the Windows Defender, you need to exclude the process, not files/directories, see https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-211178#focus=streamItem-27-3412218.0-0 for the solution.
