My blender hangs very often for a minute on two. Sometimes it doesn't, in 90% cases it does. Typical places where it hangs are:
- at startup, just after showing console window, before showing UI.
- at file -> Open, before showing file / folders UI
- at File -> Export -> FBX - before showing UI, it hangs while the menus is still visible
This makes it really annoying to work with. What could be the reason for the problem? I tried disconnecting the network, because I thought the network drives might confuse it, but this didn't change anything. My files are all on local drives.
I run on Windows 64-bit, hardware is a decent laptop with 16 GB RAM, but it seems the problem happens when nothing is really going on, what would require gears.
The console doesn't print anything new in these cases.
