Issue

Tableau Desktop is extremely slow to run when initially opened. This may also affect custom shape files.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop 10.2.5
  • Windows 10
  • My Tableau Repository configured for a remote network drive

Cause

The connection, to the remote server where the "My Tableau Repository" folder is stored, is limiting the speed with which Tableau Desktop can access its contents.
