Hello @Hugh Allison

Thank you for contacting Nitro support! 

We have a setting that changes the way Nitro Pro loads files from network drives that may help with this issue. This was specifically intended for VPN situations where the files may load slowly and is only available in Nitro PDF Pro v13.42 or later.

This can be enabled by manually changing the following key in the registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"network_disk_enabled"="/b 1"

If this key does not exist you will need to create it.

Please give this a try and let us know how it goes.

Hi Leslie,

I have made the changes to the registry key as you suggested. The program has not frozen for a while now since making the change, I think this has fixed it - thank you.
