Slow startup and refresh of application lists for environments that contain a large number of applications

Version 1

    Problem

    Starting up the RES Workspace Management Console or refreshing the applications list could be slow and also use up a lot of memory in environments that contain a large number (1000+) of applications.

    Solution

    This issue is resolved in RES Workspace Manager 2012 SR4 in conjunction with using the below registry key.

    Apply the ConsoleNoAppIcons registry key to speed up the loading and refreshing of the application list.

    RES Workspace Manager:

    32-bit:

    Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\RES\Workspace Manager
    Value: ConsoleNoAppIcons
    Type: REG_SZ
    Data: Yes

    64-bit:

    Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\RES\Workspace Manager
    Value: ConsoleNoAppIcons
    Type: REG_SZ
    Data: Yes
