Long startup time when off network

Whenever I login to a customer's VPN (thus cutting me off from the internet), SQL Compare 6 takes a long time to load. I see the splash screen for about 30 seconds or so before it finally loads and then functions normally.

This isn't a huge deal but is certainly annoying.

Does the application phone home at load time, perhaps to check for updates? If so, can this be disabled?



  • Options
    The application doesn't check for updates at load time (or phone home for any other reason), only when you explicitly ask it to.

    One of the third-party libraries that we use does check network printer settings at load-time, which might be an issue if you have a network printer set up which is also cut off when you connect to the VPN.
