Yesterday I updated MikTeX 2.9 and got the new TexWorks 6.3 as part of
that update. It takes four minutes to open, during which Task Manager
shows that it is using 30% of the system's memory. Once does come up, it
becomes unresponsive if I open any file.
I deleted the MikTeX version and let it be reinstalled by the MikTeX
updater; same behavior. I then deleted the MikTeX version, rebooted the
computer, downloaded 6.3 from GitHub and installed it directly (outside
of MikTeX); same behavior.
I've used 6.2 for a long time without any issues, so I downloaded that
old version from GitHub and it works fine. I can't send an error log
since 6.3 doesn't really do anything, just hangs if I try to use it.
Any suggestions? Maybe I should just stick with 6.2, but this is
annoying and puzzling.
