After upgrading both SQL Server and Management Studio from 2008 to 2012, Management Studio 2012 is very slow when new query windows and dialog boxes are opened.
Even right clicking on tables is slow. There is typically at least a 5 second delay before I can start doing anything within a window. This happens every time, even if I open the same window twice in a row. Why does this happen and how can I fix it?
Other applications establish connections to the database very fast.
Things I have tried that did not help:
- A hit on Google where I'd need to modify my
- Resetting SSMS "user-defined settings"
- Updating video drivers, turning off hardware acceleration, disabling DirectX
- Disabling the Biometric Authentication Service (I don't have it installed).
My computer should be more than fast enough, and I also have 16GB RAM. My hardware should definitely not be a problem. It looks like SSMS is waiting for something - I can operate other programs smoothly while this is happening.
I don't have the opportunity to install the SQL Server 2012 CU1 update because there seems to be some risk of errors installing hotfixes and I can't risk that right now.
