Maybe it is just me, but it takes a while for ForeUI to load after I start my computer. In other words, when I boot up my computer and I click on the ForeUI program icon, it takes almost a minute to load. Could you help me figure this out?
In addition to the problem itself, it is quite troublesome to recreate this problem, because I will have to restart my computer and test out the load time in order to recreate the problem.
It is a drawback of Java apps. The system need to load some dependencies for JVM before starting the app. If you install Java SE 6 update 10 or above on your computer and assign it to ForeUI (in the “ForeUI.ini” file), it will become faster since system will auto start “jqs.exe” when startup, which will preload something and accelerate the app launching.
Anyway, even without the preloading, using about 1 min to load is quite long. Could you list hardware configuration here?
To assign the JRE to used for ForeUI, just change the JAVA_HOME variable definition in the “ForeUI.ini” file. Like this:
JAVA_HOME=(Your JRE location here)
“It says JAVA_HOME=. jre currently, is that correct? “
Yes and no. It means ForeUI will use the JRE in the “jre” folder in current directory, which is Java SE 6 update 2 I guess. If you wish ForeUI to use a newer JRE, you will need to install the JRE separately, then specify its location in “ForeUI.ini” file.
There is a “jre” folder in the directory that ForeUI is installed, it is shipped with ForeUI and the version is “Java SE 6 update 2″ (which is not quite new).
You can visit http://www.java.com and download, install the latest version of JRE, then specify the path of newly installed JRE in the “ForeUI.ini” file. The default path of the newly installed JRE should be “C:Program FilesJavajre6u23″ or something.
You can google “install JRE” to find more informations.
Yes, it is located in C:Program FilesJavajre6bin
My current ini file is as follows:
I have tried other variations, such as
What should I do?
34 seconds to load initially, what is the problem? Balsamiq takes 3 seconds, if that. Flairbuilder takes maybe 3.5.
I’m also seeing slower startup after upgrading. I don’t know if it began with the latest update or one of the updates before that.
I just closed ForeUI and opened it again. It took 35 seconds to open.
I’m running Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit, and I had a fresh installation approx. 2 months ago.
Maybe it’s a Windows 7 issue?

Hi all, V2.77 is released today. In V2.77 you can turn the debug logging on by adding this node in the “settings.xml” file:
The “settings.xml” file can be found in the “(User Dir)/.foreui/conf” directory, where the (User Dir) is your account’s directory. In Windows 7, it should be “C:/Users/(username)”.
Once you turned on the debug logging, ForeUI will write some logs during the loading. The log files can be found in the “(User Dir)/.foreui/log” directory. These logs might tell us why the loading is slow.
