My Windows Explorer is very slow for a while. Is it possible that this might be related to RFEM?


Yes, the problem might also be caused by RFEM. The preview of RFEM files in Windows Explorer may cause Explorer to react more slowly.

For a possible solution, proceed as follows:

In C:\Program Files\Common Files\Dlubal, rename the ThmShellEx64.dll file to BACKUP-ThmShellEx64.dll.

In the case of the 32-bit version, rename the ThmShellEx.dll file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Dlubal to BACKUP-ThmShellEx.dll.

Finally, it is necessary to restart your PC.
