Latest version slow on Win 7, but ok on Windows 10

Postby vincentt » 2017-05-08 16:07

Hi,

We were using an earlier version of SC, and we notice sluggishness on Windows 10. So I went ahead and used the latest version of SC, Feb 2015 version along with the latest viewer. And this fix worked fine for Windows 10.

However when the same updated version is run on Windows 7, its very sluggish, infact unusable, as even the refresh button does not refresh the screen, and requires multiple clicks.

Has anyone else seen this same issue? Let me know if there are any fixes planned for this?

I plan to recompile an earlier version like June 2013 or the July 2014 and try it. But wanted to know if there is any other option. I am using the plain singleclick versions, my plan is also to run the full version which is heavier but worth a try I thought.

Thanks,
Vincent

WIN10 -> The OS tell what change
WIN7 -> you need to blit and detect
WIN7 optimizations are bad for 10 and invers...th usual MS hell.

Is on the planning !
All version FUll/SC/ucn2me/pchelpware require some code that proper can detect the fastest way.
I'm also thinking of adding some benchmark button, if we can't predict it correct, at least we can measure it.

OK, you loose a few minutes to optimize but after all should be smoother.
