    Default Start up time delay

    For those analyzing data, I did a time check on v4.5 vs v6, and even using a shortcut it took significantly longer to start v6 (5 seconds as opposed to 77 seconds. FYI

    Make sure you have the latest build 1553 2044. That fixed the problem for me.

    Go to the Help menu
    "Check for new version"

    or, when you start up Alpha Five, on the "News" tab, it'll tell you if you have the latest version or not, assuming you have an active Internet connection.

    thanks guys, it seems to have cut it down to 25-30 seconds for both ways of starting-up (regular and shortcut to the database I most use) but that still seems to be an inordinate amount of time considering neither approach runs any kind of applications. still, thanks again for your help.
