How are the users accessing FlashFXP, is it via a remote terminal session or are they running FlashFXP as a RemoteApp?

The number one cause for a slow start in FlashFXP is when the "Default download folder" points to a path that contains an excessive amount of files/folders or if the path is a slow such as a network share.

This can be changed within FlashFXP from the main menu > Options > Preferences
Then from the Preferences dialog click on "General"
Now should see the "Default Download Folder" setting and from here you can change it.
Finally click the OK button to save the changes.

I happen to have a physical machine (non-VM) running Windows Server 2008 R2 and this is what I primarily use as a test bed for testing terminal sessions and RemoteApp compatibility and performance in FlashFXP. The machine was recently upgraded to a slower but more energy efficient CPU, AMD 910e @ 2.60GHz, with 8GB of ram, SSD boot drive and RAID 10 for storage. (The previous CPU was AMD x4 965 BE @ 3.4GHz)

Using the configuration above I am not able to reproduce the slow startup via either a remote terminal session or as a RemoteApp. My test was done with a laptop connected at 300Mbps over a wireless connection, though still over a LAN.

I will conduct some additional tests and try to simulate a higher latency/slower connection speed.
