Hi all
It's good to see this forum is still going! I first came here about 15 years ago, and it's been a long time! Is it still the same chap running it?
Anyhoos, just got myself Max 2014, and it takes AGES to load up. And I mean, ages. No big deal, but I just wondered if this was normal. If not, then maybe I have an issue somewhere.
Any thoughts? Thanks.....

24core xeon

quadro k4000

as a side note, in the last 15 years they have only introduced multi-core into the rendering side of things, the rest of the time u get to use 1 core! its a feature!

edit: with standard ssd. would like to hear from anyone using a pci-ssd m.2 1gb/1gb

The GPU/CPU/RAM setup doesn't really effect the loading time. Get an SSD if you want to cut the start up time in more than half.

Are you loading from floppy disks ?

Delete your ENU folder, temp rename/move your plugins and script folders, and give it another shot.

Vanilla max shouldn't take that long.

Seems to take ages the first time you load it up, then much quicker from there.
