Slow OpenStudio Application Load Time

It seems that after installing version 2.7.0 (Win 64) of OpenStudio, it takes a couple of minutes every time I open the program. Anyone else having this and any ideas on how to fix it?

This is likely related to loading the default libraries at app launch.

To fix it, once the OpenStudio app launches, go to Preferences -> Change Default Libraries -> Restore Defaults image description

In the future, if you have issues or bugs related to OpenStudio, check to see if they are already filed as an issue on Github. There is a chance it is already answered there. If not, add an issue.

Thanks, that fixed it. I'll keep the Github issues in mind next time.
