Has anybody besides me noticed that Wise Package Studio performance is slow as dog**** especially over a network, and setup capture?

Seems to me, WFWI used to be pretty darn quick.

Now, I go to change something in setup capture settings, and it just sits there forever (I'm talking 15+ minutes). That's keeping everything on a local computer. Try to use the network installation with the software database, etc? Fugeddaboudit.

Anybody heard anything from Wise about this?

I haven't got experience with other products, but as i'm typing this i'm allready waiting fo 4 minutes for Wise PS to build a MSI file of 355 MB. (Hardware: P4 2,4 Ghz, 512 Mb)

Wise Packaging often crashes after modifying normal table entries. (paths, directories)

Wise can take forever to do the initial compile of a MSI as it decides on the structure of the MSI. I have had big packages around 1 gig take 2 days to do the initial compile with Wise on a Pentium 4 desktop. I do like how Wise repackages applications (MSI structure) aside from the speed.

I try to recomend to my clients that getting a Dual Xeon desktop with 1 gig of ram and VMWare is the fastest repackaging platform you can use but I have been on only one site where they made the plunge. Of course VMWare is useless for simulating driver installs in the real world but I am sure you can always borrow hardware from desktop support or the desktop imaging folks. I know throwing hardware at Wise may not be the best solution but the speed gains in the overall platform I think is worth the price of one really good desktop.

I agree Wise takes forever at times. I have also seen the Standard Operating Environment tool crash on Pentium 3 pcs with 256MB of RAM.
