Issues with Windows 7?

Postby silverfish42 » Fri Sep 17, 2010 1:32 pm

I just installed MTG Studio to a new system, much more powerful than my old one, but for some reason it runs much, much slower than on the old one. It can take almost ten minutes for a search filter to run it seems like. Also, for some reason the search box is always on top of all my other windows, thats really annoying, and I don't recall it doing that before either.

Edit: I timed it, and its taking almost 2 minutes to start up.

My system is running 64bit Windows 7 Home Premium on an Intel Core 2 Duo clocked at 2.13 GHz, 4 gigs of RAM, and a geForce GTX 260M with 1 gig of VRAM.

There was a version that had the search version on top of everything but I thought the latest version 'fixed' that. Did you accidentally download an old version somehow? Or maybe use install on one machine and portable on the other and one of them does it that way still? I only use portable.

Also he released a beta that had to be downloaded from the forums and installed manually so it might be the 1.8.2 is on top and 1.8.3 beta is not and you installed from the main page and not from the forum on top of the one from the main page?

And I know between two versions there was a major decrease in load time so maybe you installed a version before that? These sound like 'old' features to me but not sure how you ended up with them.

I suspect that you already have a heavy filter applied.
I suggest you to

1. open MTG Studio
2. click over Tools|Open Configuration
3. close MTG Studio
4. delete all *.filter files and mtgstudio.conf file
5. start MTG Studio again
