When running Liquid XML Studio it takes a long time to startup (in the order of 20 seconds)
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,
- Open a console.
- 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".
- On Windows 2000, XP, and 2003, click on the Start button, click Run, type "cmd.exe" (without quotes) and click OK.
- Type the following and press Enter.
