Office applications load slowly

MacroView DMF provides add-ins for Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Occasionally, customers report that one of these applications can take longer than normal to load after MacroView DMF is installed or updated. In some cases, the same occurs after Windows Updates are installed. This can sometimes indicate an issue with the .NET Framework install or the network connection settings on the workstation in question.
