Hello,

Can I just ask how long I should expect it to take for CityEngine to load? For example, after running the CityEngine command or desktop shortcut, until the software has fully loaded.

On both my linux machine and windows machine it takes a full 5-10 minutes of load time (I've not timed it exactly), but needless to say a very long time. Is this normal or is something wrong somewhere?

Thanks,

David

Hi, check this post about the '-Dagol' switch :

On startup, CityEngine 2012 waits for the connection of ArcGIS Online ( AGOL ). The timeout of that server is set a bit high, so that usually causes a couple minutes of delay.

Setting the switch will abort the search for a possible AGOL connection, thus it'll start faster. Though of course that way, you cut off the possibility to share WebScenes directly on AGOL.

Lemme know if it works.

Hello,

That's great thanks. Yesterday I timed my start up time, it was over 15 minutes. Today, with that fix, under 30 seconds. We're behind several corporate firewalls and proxies, generally anything that needs access to the outside world needs some kind of special setup.

Thanks again!
