I installed Matlab 2017a recently and ever since it takes many many minutes to finish initialising when I start it up. I'm running matlab on Windows 7 64-bit. What is making initialisation so slow and can I speed it up? Thanks.
1) I have a standalone license,
2) Pointing Matlab to my license file on startup does not improve speed of startup: (https://uk.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/91507-why-does-matlab-take-a-long-time-to-start-up?s_tid=answers_rc1-1_p1_MLT ; also https://uk.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/92566-why-does-matlab-get-stuck-in-the-initializing-or-busy-state-or-take-a-long-time-to-start).
