launchBar slow and crashes
« on: August 20, 2010, 07:14:15 AM »
Just installed your launchbar after watching your video and thought it was just what I was looking for. Program installed OK and loads OK it's just the running. It seams to be slow at displaying the program list (maybe there are too many programs in the list) and when I click on the icon with the PC screen and computer alongside nothing happens for ages and sometimes the program will crash more often than not.

My system is.

Pletium Duel Core 1.8Mhz 2 Gb Ram 500 Mb HDD. My security software is Panda Cloud Antivirus and I also have Comodo Time Machine installed along with Scotty Winpatroll.

Maybe I have done something wrong ? After install of Launchbar I just kept the default settings and have changed Nothing in the program setting or anywhere else.

Hope this is enough information.

Regards
John Barnett.

there is no reason it should be slow when working properly.

i wonder if the problem is that you have an item in your launchbar that does not exist on the disk?
you might also check that the topmost "Options" node has the following UNchecked: "Search different drives for missing node item paths"
and that the dock node has the following UNchecked: "Hide Missing (slower)"

see if that makes any difference.

you might also try starting a new dock file with just one or two items and see if it's still slow.  if not then at least we know it's something you are adding that is confusing the program and making it slow down.

you could also send me your .mcf launchbar file if you want me to take a look at it (mouser@donationcoder.com)

Thought it only polite to let you know I have had Launchbar working perfectly for the last week now.
