Scanning the virtual drive takes too long

Life is too short!

Hi there,

Thanks very much for playonlinux, it helps me a lot!

I'm running 4.2.2 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, mostly using Wine 1.7.14-imm32_bug25361 now.

My problem is that I mostly install a lot of applications on one virtual drive (default), since each virtual drive contains some overhead.  Every time I want to make a new shortcut, it takes a minute or so to scan the virtual drive, while i just wanted to browse to the exe.  The finally, you make the shortcut, and it scans the drive again!  One thing that I installed was MingW, with a lot of exe's, taking very long to scan.

I suggest you put two buttons in the dialog: Browse and Scan. no need for a selection list and a Next button, that takes two clicks!  On the Scan button you should be able to use the same code you have now.

Thanks again, keep up the good work!

Regards,

Chris

I have to agree. It takes a very long time. Maybe we can warn the users:

hello guys,

 

If you're scanning your hard drive (used chkdsk /r for example), that process will take in excess of 2 hours depending on size of your drive and errors found. it typically stops updating around 10 or 11% and suddenly jumps to 100 when done.

 

thanks and regards
