    Has anyone noticed that ViewNX takes forever to open if you have Lightroom installed?

    I believe it may be something to do with the Lightroom catalogs stored within the Pictures folder...

    I am setting up a new laptop, and before I had Lightroom installed, ViewNX performed quite nicely, it opened only a few seconds after double-clicking the desktop icon.

    I then installed my new copy of Lightroom 2 and set up a couple catalogs. I have about 15K photos cataloged in each catalog, files are stored on a server and only thumnails are stored in each catalog. I am trying to keep my catalogs smaller, and I catalog photos by year as I have them stored on my server in folders according to year as well.

    ViewNX now takes a minute or two to open, even if I take the Pictures folder out of the Favorites.

    Anyone have any ideas?
