After clicking the exe, it takes 30 seconds to appear. And the worst part is that nothing shows up during this process. Is there any way to decrease this time? I would also like to make a splash screen which appears as soon as executing the program if possible. Any suggestions?
Beside the very first time where the program is lauched: most of my compiled applications take:
1) Console Black windows appears < 100 ms 2) Some message starts to appears on ~ +1 sec 3) A main gui window appears ~+1 sec
I could show another textbox between 2) and 3), but why bother for 1sec?
The time I observe is no where close to 30 seconds.
