Slow to Launch (mac)

(Kate Pdot) #1

It seems like getting zwift to launch quickly on my mac is hit or miss.  Often times when I go to launch it the updater will go, then the zwift app will open up in my dock and nothing happens.  I’ll forget about it and several minutes (10+) later it finally opens.  Other times it launches up pretty quickly.   Anyone else have this problem.   I’m on a 2010 macbook pro with 4 gigs of ram, 2.4 ghz i5 processor with the built in graphics card and an NVIDA GeForce GT 330 graphics card.  Once it finally launches everything runs very well… its just getting it to launch.

Hi Kate,

Most likely it is your MacBook Pro. Honestly, I’m kinda surprised it runs as it barely runs on a 2011 MBP (my home machine). There’s not much you can do to make it run faster on a 5 year-old machine other than to add more RAM (8 gigs would be best) and to swap out the HDD for a Solid-State Drive.
