Hi, I'm the OP, my box is :
As I said the first load takes 5 seconds and the consecutive loads
take fractions of a second - my assumption is that Windows is caching
something which is not suitable for my needs as it is not predictable
enough. There is no network issues involved in this, everything is
running off the local hard drive. I've just this moment run python
after the box having done some work and being asleep overnight and the
startup time was about 2 seconds. I may be doing something wrong but
the only configuration stuff I've done is to add into my environment
This is simply to allow me to switch between different python
directories when I start to install different versions (I do the same
with the JVM). If python can't start up quick on windows, that's fine,
if I've got something miscofigured which can be fixed, that's fine too -
I just need to know if there is a 'quick start up' mode but if there
isn't then that's also fine. It's just info I need to design what will
be a very simple app.
Thanks, for your help.
