Recently, I installed Processing 3.5.3 on my computer. Whenever I run any code, the software freezes, and prevents me from typing, and closing the software. I’ve tried both 64 and 32 bit versions of Processing 3.5.3. In addition, the software runs very slowly, and takes a while to open.
I’d like it so that I can use the software correctly. Being able to run and save code, and the software being much faster to open, and use.
Steps to Reproduce
I’m not sure how to reproduce this, as all I’ve done is install and run the software. I’ve been trying to diagnose it myself for about 2 or 3 days to no avail.
Processing version: 3.5.3, 64 bit (I’ve also tried the 32 bit version)
Operating System and OS version: Windows 10, 64 bit.
Other information: The software is running on a school network, but on an account administrator privileges.
I see Processing start in about 4 seconds (ArchLinux on 4 year old i7 laptop with 16Gb RAM or Ubuntu on a recent i5 with 8Gb RAM, both on SSD) and sketches run in about 0.2 sec on the first, about 1.0 sec on the second. I always wondered why these times are very different across computers. Like programs taking 5 to 10 seconds to run when I get 0.2. I don’t see similar time differences when using other programs, I have the impression it’s related to Processing or Java.
Maybe if a few people post their times we can see a pattern. For instance I have very few fonts, and I think this makes a difference in some systems.
Hello, thanks for the response I really appreciate the help. I followed your instructions and copy pasted the code. Before pasting, the software runs fine. I can change the settings, etc. And the same goes even after I pasted the code. The issues start when I press run.
When run is pressed, nothing happens. You can’t close the software, or change settings or anything like that. No window pops up, and the terminal at the bottom doesn’t changes. When I press stop, the software starts to lose it’s UI and stops working
