Slow Designer responsiveness

Problem: After installing the new version of Service Virtualization, or making a change to your computer, such as installing an update or new software, the Designer responds very slowly, especially when working in the Data Model Editor.

Solution: Modify the Designer configuration file, VirtualServiceDesigner.exe.config, located in %[INSTALLLOCATION]%\Designer\bin\. To edit the file, you must have administrator privileges on the machine.

Open the file in a text editor and change the value of SeV.Global.EnableAutomationFix from False to True. If the Designer is open, close it and restart.

If this does not solve the problem, do the following:

  1. Change the value of SeV.Global.EnableAutomationFix back to False.
  2. Change the value of SeV.Global.ClearAutomationEvents from False to True.
  3. If the Designer is open, close it and restart.
