procmon[1] might help getting more information about what's going on.

Hi Cliff,

I don't really know what is going on on your machine.

Just a shot in the dark: if you run an antivirus software, try to 
disable it and see if it helps.


The other guess would be plugins, but you said that you already tried 
starting with the --noplugins switch, so that doesn't help either ...


Hope you are able to find out what the problem is.

Andreas

Hi Cliff,
this reminds me of a nasty thing I encountered before.
I logged all there: 
http://osgeo-org.1560.x6.nabble.com/Qgis-first-startup-is-slow-td4975911.html


I disappeared when reinstalling a new version, without clearly 
understanding what happened. Final tests let think that something was 
weird with windows shared file system where profiles where stored.

What is your exact OS version?

All I can advice is to log all what happens with process_monitor.exe 
and look at the errors you get.

Also, can you tell us:
What happens in those test cases?
 - launch qgis again while first instance has not startup yet
 - launch qgis using configpath option with a profile on another drive 
than currently (network or local?)
 - is the second startup faster than the first one ? (if yes you have 
another Microsoft windows phenomenon called cold startup cumulating 
itself with previous one)


Thanks for your tests, you face a really rare issue that we must 
narrow down and solve,  really


Cheers
Régis

Greetings,

On a new Dell laptop running Windows 7 (i7, 8GB ram), it takes
about 3-5 minutes for QGIS to start, which is a hassle. It hangs
at “Starting up the GUI” and if I click on the splash screen, it
crashes, but if I let it sit it eventually starts without any
error. I have had this problem since installing QGIS 2.14 using
the OSGeo4W 64-bit installer. I have since completely removed that
installation, deleted the .qgis folder, and deleted all registry
entries. I then reinstalled using the standalone installer and
still no luck. I currently have QGIS versions 2.14, 2.16, and 2.18
installed and experience the same problem with each.

Other steps I've taken were to disable plugins and remove plugins,
but no change on startup.

I have the same versions running on another Windows 7 machine and
a Linux VM with no problems.

The only error I see in the logs is the following:

2016-11-21T13:37:48 1 Failed to load
C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS2~1.14/apps/qgis-ltr/plugins/globeplugin.dll
(Reason: Cannot load library
C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS2~1.14/apps/qgis-ltr/plugins/globeplugin.dll: The
specified procedure could not be found.)

Does anyone know what could be causing QGIS to boot up so slowly?

Cheers,
Cliff
