genesys 2010.05 and compatibility mode

Question asked by biff44 on Jan 22, 2013
Recently installed genesys 2010.05 on a windows 7 64 bit machine.  I ran the compatiblity mode tester and it recommended running it as "XP service pack2".  Unfortunately, it is very slow.  When I try to tune a component in a simple circuit, it takes a fair number of seconds to do a simple linear analysis.  Genesys is working much faster on an older XP machine I have.  This new machine is an i7-2600K overclocked and with plenty of ram.  I should get an answer just as soon as I click the new component value, not wait 6 seconds.
It seems to be using 4 cores and very little of the ram.

Is there anything in 2010.05 that is slowing it down on a windows 7 64 bit machine?  Should I choose a differnt compatibility mode setting?  Should I limit it to one core?  Some way to tell it it is 32 bit program?  I am open to ideas! any speed up tips?
