Fontlab Studio Saving Very Slow

Ken Krugh's picture

I'm working in Win XP, Fontlab Studio 5.0.4 and we recently installed a new Windows 2008 server. Now saving (simply doing a Ctrl + S or File, Save) takes as long as 30-45 seconds. The font files size doesn't seem to matter much, even fonts that aren't particularly large take a looooong time to save.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks,
Ken

try to use Fontforge as well - anytime Fontlab may have problems, you can use the Fontforge's parachute! :)

I reckon that this hasn’t anything to do with FLS as such. There seem to be all sorts of slowdown-issues related to the use of SMB2 (Server Message Block Protocol Version 2) in Windows 2008 Server. Some Googling on this subject might perhaps help.
