Easy .NET Performance Hack


As of late, my laptop has been slow to start applications. I did the usual disk cleaning, cache flushes, etc., all of which had little affect on performance. Then I came across this Stack Overflow Article. To quote one of the comments:

“Holy $%@&, it WORKED!!!”

Here’s the the hack.

CD C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319
NGEN update

It takes a few minutes to run and you’ll see lots of errors, which you can safely ignore. I did the same on the 32-bit version of the framework. I plan to run this after every system update.

It’s a bit of a disappointment to have to perform maintenance tasks on the framework.
