Rhino 7.11's splash takes ~90s to appear

Meanwhile the safemode starts pretty fast but I have already disabled all third-party plugins.

Every feature inside Rhino works normally. Does Rhino have more detailed log file to go through, or a way to disable the splash window? It seems Rhino is stuck with WinForm. Rhino 6 starts quickly on the same computer.

Hi -

I suppose that’s the easy way out. Create an icon with the /nosplash argument behind "[path]\Rhino.exe" (or run rhino /nosplash from the command line).

Just a random guess - I had the same happening caused by the 3DConnextion plugin (don’t use the device anymore). After disabling that the Rhino/Splashscreen startup was much faster.
