Windows explorer slow/very long delays with shell extension enabled
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open explorer
- Right-click on any directory
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The context menu should appear, instead, the hourglass is displayed. It takes more than 8 seconds until the context menu appears.
What version of TortoiseGit and Git are you using? On what operating system?
I tested with 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 on Windows 7 Pro (Version 6.1, Build 7601: Service Pack 1)
Please provide any additional information below.
Note that this happens on a new started explorer instance. If you have already opened a context menu in an explorer, the next right-click is fast. Seems like an initialisation in TortoiseGit is taking long.
However, the first right-click on a new started explorer is fast if the TortoiseGit shell extensions is disabled.
