Tips on Optimizing Speed for TraceFinder4.0 and later

The first tip for speed optimization can be used on any application. On many systems, the power setting is set for Balanced, especially for laptop users as this conserves battery power. However, graphic intense applictions and those applications that require your processor to be run optimally, need the CPU to be fully powered. Otherwise, the CPU and RAM will not perform at their specified speeds.

Under the Control Panel for Windows 7, select the High Performance Option.

Second, Microsoft has put out a new version of the .NET Framework, which drives many of the underlying functions in Windows and applications written for Windows 7. Most people have no idea that this exist.

The new version .NET 4.6.2 fixes many issues Windows was experiencing with .NET 4.5.1, which TraceFinder 3.3 and above was installed with. Also, if your IT group or new PC has .NET 4.6 or 4.6.1, Microsoft has suggested that users install the new .NET 4.6.2.

Below is a link to download the framework from Microsoft. Please check with your IT group before making changes on a corporate PC.
