    MC|F freeze on project opening / W10

    Hi there,

    perhaps someone has/had similar issue...I recently found MC and wanted to try i out. I am no professional, just mere trial (and error) user.

    I am not running "supported" system, so short description:

    Windows 10 Home 64bit, cpu i5 6600, gpu Geforce 1060GTX 6G, 32GB DDR4 RAM, Z170A chipset MSI MB.

    Latest drivers on most if not everything - i have read post about supported driver version and so on and as pc enthusiast/pc builder/gamer/server&station administrator i can get around much trouble on my own.

    What bugs me is this: I managed to make MC 8.9.2 and now 8.9.3 run on my system (it would freeze and not respond on first few tries after installation - I have to run it as admin, but no other compatibility settings). I can get it to fully load and it opens window for opening/creating projects. I make new project or open one previously made and let it sit for any given time. Windows for loading projects dissapears and MC freezes (to death)... Analyzing process queues it looks like waiting for I/O network operation, but who knows...

    While frozen, it keeps cpu at 25-35% and about 3GB of RAM. Only way to kill it, is to kill the process.


    Thanks for any suggestions (other than using old drivers - that is not an option - AAMOF it should not be in any given time) :)

    That sounds like it might be an I/O issue. What do you have connected for drives (internal, external, thumb drives, etc.)?

    DIY quad core I7-4790K, 32Gb, NVidia GTX 970 4GB, Win 10 Pro, MC(generally the latest or the one just before), MC 7.x [view my complete system specs]
