Peter,

I have the same issue on my Mac Pro with OS 10.6.4 with both PM 4.5.6 and the 4.6.6 beta.
When I revert back to 4.6.4 there's no problems at all.

On my MacBook Pro I'm running PM 4.5.6 with no problems at all, which leads me to believe it has something to do with the graphics card in my Mac Pro.
It's a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT.

It must be a different issue then.  The issue that started this thread is a Windows-only issue.

Perhaps you could describe your MacPro issue in detail?  (And I'm guessing you mean 4.6.5 instead of 4.5.6 since there never was a 4.5.6 version in the 4.5.x series.)

-Kirk


Kirk,

Of course I mean 4.6.5, sorry about that...
When I open 4.6.5 or 4.6.6 it starts to display the thumbs but then it stalls and becomes completely unresponsive.
I can open some thumbs but they don't render and if I try to quit the program it takes forever to shut down and just gives me the spinning wheel.

In 4.6.4 I have none of those issues..

That would definitely be a different issue than what the original poster wrote about.

What kind of files are in the folder you're browsing?
How many files are in the folder you're browsing?

Would you be willing to run a logging version of Photo Mechanic so we can get to the bottom of this new issue?

-Kirk


3000 + files in the folders, primarily Canon RAW files (1Ds III)
No problem running a logging version, just let me know.

Peter

I've sent you a personal message that contains all of the details on the logging version and the procedure I need you to follow.  Click on the 'MY MESSAGES' tab at the top of this page to see your personal messages.

Thanks,

My 4.6.6 beta has expired. Do I have to return to 4.6.5, or can I download somewhere the completed 4.6.6?
Regards
Holger

Holger,

Always check the Announcements section of the forums.  It is there that we announce releases and new betas.  You can get the newer 4.6.6 beta in the Announcements section of the forums.  The final 4.6.6 version has not been released yet.

Kirk -
4.6.6 betas - Are AMAZING to me. For the longest time I could not use Navigator in PM to rename or create directories. (Yes I posted it but you could not reproduce it)  Anything that had to do with drives & folders I did in explorer and went back to PM to do my editing. Just seeing my CF card readers was slow and ingesting was getting slower.
Since the problem with 4.6.5 was corrected many other issues I had, have gone away. 

It seems, but I don't want to speak too soon, that the Favorites issue ( disappearing, Not staying in place) I had also seems to be fixed

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You
Joe

I made no changes to the Favorites or Navigator in 4.6.6.  So I'm not sure why you've noticed improvements in those areas of PM.

I believe it is the changes you made regarding Norton -that seemed to be my main problem with 4.6.5 - but when that issue was resolved - all the others seem to  go away.

version 4.6.5 on Win 7 64bit with 8 gigs RAM 3.2hz AMD

My Photo Mechanic is also very very slow and hangs up and is especially slow to respond and react to clicks if I happen to navigate away from it to another application such as internet or photoshop or whatever, it doesn't matter.    Breezebrowser beats the pants off of PM currently... 

I don't know what to do. It has done this every since I bought the upgrade.  Prior to that I did not use it so much so not sure if the earlier version was doing it either.  I thought since it was so highly regarded I would try to use it more but inevetibly I return to Breezebrowser... 

Otherwise my computer smokes...   Where can I get the beta version?  Is this issue of slowness anti-virus related?  Thanks.
