I have ArcGIS 10.2.2 Desktop, License type: Advanced, installed on a windows 7 64 bit machine.
It normally takes about 12 seconds to initialize the license, whether in ArcMap or a stand alone Python script.
Suddenly today it is taking about 50 seconds. The only thing I can think of is that I ran the
Advanced System Care Iobit registry cleaner but I am fairly sure I have done this before since I installed 10.2.2 without problems.
I have had similar start up times before after installing an upgraded version of ArcGIS and the only way I found to cure it was to uninstall it, remove all traces from the registry and re-install but I would dearly love to be able to fix it without going through all that again.
Can anyone suggest a way to find why it is taking so long?
