File load time in FP 2002

I have been using FP2K since it came out and recently upgraded to 2002.

Everything seems to work OK except for one thing and I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem and has a explanation or solution.

When I try to insert a picture from file it takes a lot longer than it used to. It seems like it is trying to physically load every file in the folder before the "hourglass" goes off and I can select my file. It can sometimes take up to a minute depending on the number of files in the folder.

Occasionaly I get an alert box that says the application has run out of RAM but it continues anyway.

I have 250MB RAM and plenty of disk on a 450mhz PIII running WINME. I keep my system defragged with diskeeper regularly.

Anyone run into this or know why it is happening?

This is the first I've heard of it...or perhaps I just haven't noticed it  ;-)


Let me do some experimenting today and see what I can find out.


Can you give me more details?  Is it the actual insertion of the file that is taking so long, or the loading of the folder's contents list?

It happens when I go to insert a picture from file.

When the Windows Explorer box comes up it delays for a long time while the hourglass blinks and the files start to appear.

I can't replicate that on this end.  If anything it is faster than FP2K.  8-(

In your control panel, when you have FP open, what % of your ram is free??
0
 
READERAuthor Commented:
Its 78% before I open FP.
72% after and 68% when I go to load a graphic file.

That is a big jump when you are opening the graphics.  Personally, opening FP takes 4% and opening the graphics takes nothing additional.

However, %'s being relative and you having more than me....still, I don't think you should see that jump.


Have you tried Detect & Repair from the Help Menu?

Good suggestion.

I didn't even know that feature was there.

I tried it and it seems to have fixed the problem.

Thanks
