OT Livecode and Intego Virus Barrier

Maybe i wrote it misleading, but this problem does not generally occur. A new user would not have to face with this.

My file ~/Library/Logs/RunRev/LiveCodeToolsLog.txt was about 3mb in size. After i removed it from the folder, the loading time was already acceptable. And even after several “restarts”  of LC and a growing log file the loading time was okay. So either my file was “broken” or maybe it was just to big.

Just only to avoid that problem in future, i´ve added the mentioned file and the  folder to the Trusted Objects. And with that the loading time is even better.

There wasn´t a false positive. Intego Virus Barrier just slowed down the loading of LC a little bit. Okay 3 minutes are not a little bit. ;)

So i am not sure, this is really something i should report to Runrev.

I informed Intego already about my progress and i will get a new release  from them once it is built. I´ve kept the Livecode log file, so i can test it against that version.
