In our move to AE 5.4 M150, many authors are reporting very poor performance when first launching the editor. I've confirmed this even when opening the editor without a document. It takes anywhere from 40 to 90 seconds, usually the first time you open the editor. If you immediately close and then reopen the editor (again, without a document), it opens in just a few seconds. Anyone have any idea what's going on during that initial open. It has nothing to do with our doctypes, etc., as it happens without opening a document. Maybe there are some default preferences that need to be unplugged?
Again, this was not an issue with AE 5.2 M130, our previous level.
