Is RapaGUI slower on Windows 10 than on other platforms?

Post by amyren »

I made this program that is hosting a growing list of nearly 600 items (each with 10 subitems) that now takes about 20 secs to load from file and into the listview. This is on a core i5 laptop, win10 64 bit.
How it works is that it reads the file into a list using ReadTable(), and then inserts the list into the listview. The file size is 79kb. I was thinking this was normal time to load and process the data and presenting it in the listview. Until today, I created a MorphOS version to test on my mac mini. It loads the same data in just a few seconds.
On the same laptop I do have Amikit installed, so I tested a 68k_FPU version running in AmiKit/WinUAE. It also loads the data in a few seconds.
Next test, I have Windows 7 in Virtualbox on the same laptop. Under Win 7 it loads the data in 7-10 seconds.

Any clues on why it performs so much slower on Windows 10 compared to on emulated 68k?
