Some of our customers that have higher transport volumes reported the Windows GUI was taking a long time to load up – sometimes as much as 30-40 seconds.
Part of the reason for this was the loading up of the Transports in the Path/Target location during the initial load. If that Location happened to have many (ie many hundred, or even thousand) of transports sitting in it, then it negatively imported the load-time performance of the ActiveControl application.
To mitigate this, a new ‘Open application with no active location’ checkbox bas been added to the Windows GUI login screen.
- If the checkbox is ticked the GUI will open without any location.
- If the checkbox is not ticked the GUI will open with the last location (if one is available).

Also note that as part of ActiveControl 8.40, the Fast Start options have been moved to the [Config] screen
Figure: ‘Enable Fast Start’ and ‘Enable Fast Serialization’ are now switched on via the Config screen
