@DevBytes: the problem persists on with 1.28.1 on windows 7 pro 64 bits (which is not really an uncommon OS version): everything is slow and some the applications even fail to load (like gmail which would just not succeed to connect with an error message). This is true even after clicking on “Reset Current Application” for every app.
And I discovered that even after deleting
%APPDATA%\Station (to have a vanilla installation), station 1.28.1 is really slow even to just display it’s first login page (where you put your email address to be able to use station). So there’s really something wrong beginning with 1.26.0 (which, as a reminder, is a version that uses a new version of electron which was upgraded to 3.0).
As a simple summary:
- station 1.25.1 (electron 2.0.2) on windows 7 pro 64 bits: everything smooth
- station 1.26.0 and later (electron 3.0) on windows 7 pro 64 bits: everything is slow, there are timeouts in apps (like gmail), most apps simply never load. Even with a vanilla profile (= remove
%APPDATA%\Station), station is really slow (more than 10 seconds) to load the first login form.
It would be great if you could test it on your side on windows 7 because that’s where a doubt remains (as you explained, it works fine on windows 10).
Or is there someone else that could/should do the test (no offense @DevBytes but it is in fact not clear whether you work for station or not by looking at you station community’s profile ). Maybe @Alexandre is the right person to ask?
In the meantime I reinstall 1.25.1 everytime I close station or reboot my computer to be able to work. I don’t mind doing it because station is a good piece of software that helps me being organized in my everyday work. But I certainly hope that this problem will be properly tested on windows 7 on your side.
