I have a lab tool that saves a picture image of a graph (as a png file) as well as two 8 meg raw data files as .ibw files. My users notice that the save operation takes quite a while (about 12 sec). The system is a PC running 6.2 on Windows XP Service Pack 3 (Quicktime is installed)
In my investigation it seems as that the SavePict operation is a major culprit in the time.
I use SavePict/e=-5 (+ some path and name strings) in the function.
If I select "Save Graphics" from the file menu and after selecting the file type it takes a good 5-6 sec before the file dialog box appears.
As a test on my Mac laptop it is very fast.
Is this normal on a PC? And if not is there anything I can do to speed this up?
