ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Slow startup
« on: 2016-11-22 12:18:29 »
I have the latest build. Win 7, 16 gb RAM, SSD boot drive. Database on SSD, tp8 extension. Startup when the last viewed folder contains 198 images the program hangs with Create the tree pane contents. Sometimes for over a minute!

Any suggestions as to why this is happening? I do not recall it being this slow with previous releases of V10.

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Import from TP7

> [*]Create a dedicated ThumbsPlus database for offline discs. I did this years ago for a collection of cliparts and fonts, worked fine for me. Simply take your v7 database and convert it to v8. Then, remove all thumbnails other than the offline volumes and run the command "Database -> Advanced -> Compact and repair..."

Did that. The converted DB does not have anything in the tree for Offline CDs. I have TP7 on another computer. I can open the data there. I tried an export, but found nothing useful....

I think am going to have to re-scan.

Understood. Do you then switch between your photo database and the clipart data? Or is there a way to keep more than one open at a time?

I have added a lot of images since I was using 7. Were I to convert that data, is there a way to move the offline CD branch to a different database?

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Import from TP7 [OK]

I switched to TP8 when I brought up this Win 7 machine. I tried to convert the TP7 data and did not like the results (too long ago to remember what was wrong).

I have one problem that I would have asked about then had the newsgroups been working: the old database contains a large collection of data on offline CDs. I'd really like to have away to move that to TP8 without re-scanning those disks.

Is there a way? I have Access 2007 if that would be helpful.
