Liquid XML Studio takes a long time to startup - NGen Disabled

Summary

When running Liquid XML Studio it takes a long time to startup (in the order of 20 seconds)

Status

Normally most of the Microsoft .Net framework dll's are pre-compiled and cached by Windows service canned nGen. This means that applications startup faster. However after the application of some Windows Updates nGen can become disabled, causing this pre-compilation to stop working.

The problem can be worked arounf by forcing nGen to compile all the dll's it has queued by doing the following,

  1. Open a console.
    1. On Windows Vista and newer, click on the Start button and type "cmd.exe" (without quotes). When found, right-click on the item and select "Run as administrator".
    2. On Windows 2000, XP, and 2003, click on the Start button, click Run, type "cmd.exe" (without quotes) and click OK.
  2. Type the following and press Enter.

    %WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe executeQueuedItems
