Yes sorry.
Strange, AMD Athlon XP 2800+ should not be so terribly slow.
Something slows things down in your machine.

If you actually see the windows, it means calling "fpc -i" and "fpc

After that the GUI control creation takes more time.

It helps only loading the options, not generating the GUI. It would be
interesting to know which operation is slower in your computer.

Out of curiosity, how long does starting Lazarus take there?
