Re: MainLobby takes "forever" to start

By running Process Explorer (sysinternals) it looks like the dllhost.exe processes are children of a single svchost.exe process -- the DcomLauncher. That is, svchost.exe is invoked via:

C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k DcomLaunch

The dllhost.exe processes that are being left behind are being started on the half hour (9:30:22, 10:00:22, 10:30:22, and so on). The dllhost.exe invocation is:

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\DllHost.exe /Processid:{BB389984-A9DD-43BC-A878-6DD935B03800}

This may be some sort of problem with my PC. But it is very strange that it seems to affect MainLobby and nothing else.

Just to add to this thread.

On my Main PC MainLobby was taking nearly a minute to load.
Then suddenly started loading in a second or two.

My Main PC is the Intel BOXDX79SI X79 , with a Intel Core i7-3960X 3.3 1 LGA 2011 Processor (6 cores) and 64GB of ram.
I'm using two Intel SSD 480GB drives in Raid 0. WIndows 7 Ultimate.
I do a lot of programming and video editing. Nothing is faster then this PC.

On my Samsung Series 7 Slate running WIndows 8 in takes about 6 seconds to load.

I think it is something in the scene files -- because it was taking a long time then as I developed more scenes in sped up.

Perhaps the OP can try a default scene?

And on a second thought, it may have sped up when I accidentally blew away all the server variables.

By figuring out when the dllhost.exe was supposed to be started and by watching the occurrence with Process Explorer (a very cool tool), I surmised that "Windows Search" was probably the culprit (it started up a child process at exactly the same second the dllhost.exe was started). I turned off the "Windows Search" feature for this PC, and there are no more extra dllhost.exe files created and MainLobby starts in a second or two every time.

A couple of questions:

1. Why do these dllhost.exe processes cause MainLobby to have problems starting up?

2. Living without "Windows Search" isn't a great way to go. I will have to research this part a bit further.
