system hangs processor

description

I have updated my family tree up to 94 people and the system will just hang, using my processor but taking 30 seconds to a minute to move onto the next action. Typing entries is almost impossibly slow. The Windsor file still opens up fine. What issues could exist that would cause the program to hang?

Hi,
I am also, updated a family tree up to 38 people, it is fine when the window state is normal, but when switching the window to Maximize, the window
is hanging, and the application goes slowly, it is even that i cannot move the diagram, everything is slow,
note: this issue is in familyshow-51712,
i wonder what issue makes this happen?

thanks.

Hi again,

I have tried to debug the application using the VS2010, and when loading the big family file, I've got the following debug error:

(ContextSwitchDeadlock was detected)

Message: The CLR has been unable to transition from COM context 0x197f28 to COM context 0x198098 for 60 seconds. The thread that owns the destination context/apartment is most likely either doing a non pumping wait or processing a very long running operation without pumping Windows messages. This situation generally has a negative performance impact and may even lead to the application becoming non responsive or memory usage accumulating continually over time. To avoid this problem, all single threaded apartment (STA) threads should use pumping wait primitives (such as CoWaitForMultipleHandles) and routinely pump messages during long running operations.

after that, I've clicked the 'Continue' button, and the file loaded, but as before, very very slow, and goes to no responding.

could this help??

thanks
