I have been using Aspose.Cells under VB.NET 2003 for a just over a year successfully. I have recently rebuilt the app in VB.NET 2005 and am seeing a 15 second delay on startup while the License file is set. I have since created a blank project with just a single form and the reference to Aspose.Cells and the embedded license file and the same delay occurs.
The only code that exists is :
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim License As Aspose.Cells.License
License = New Aspose.Cells.License
The delay occurs one the line Dim License As Aspose.Cells.License
If I comment out the license code, the app starts in 1 second.
I have tried the Net 1.0 and Net 2.0 DLL and both give the same results.
I have attached a screenshot of my code (if it helps)
Any thoughts ?
