I love using SQL Search, but I have been experiencing extremely slow startup times for SSMS 2008 R2 and I finally narrowed it down to SQL Search today. When SQL Search 1 is not installed, SSMS starts up quickly as normal. When SQL Search is installed, there is a long delay - 30 seconds-ish - every time I start SSMS. The delay occurs after the SSMS window comes up but before a new connection is offered. The only other RedGate products I have installed at this point are SQL Compare 10 and SQL Data Compare 10.
SQL Server Management Studio 10.50.2500.0
Windows 7 Professional (64 bit)
Service Pack 1
