NGEN.exe, how to use it and can it be used in an MSI??
Posted on 2005-03-11
I have been reading how the ngen.exe may help the launch time of an application, but I was hoping someone could shed more light on how to use it.
Here is my scenerio.
My application has extremely slow launch time and I am assuming its because its compiling very large shared assemblies that are from MapInfo. There are 6 assemblies in total that it uses and the start up time is in excess of two minutes.
Will NGEN.exe benefit me?
Do I only have to apply it the main executable?
If not can I apply it to Mapinfo assemblies?
And if I could do any of these, can it be used in a installation Package ?
Thanks for the help!
