WinSQL takes a long time to connect
One of the reason why the latest version of WinSQL takes a longer time to connect is because right after
connection it fetches the database catalog. This is done so that you could use the Intilli-Tip feature, which
requires a copy of catalog in memory.
Fetching catalogs may take a long time for large databases. Therefore, you can optionally turn this
feature off to speed up your connections. However, keep in mind that Intilli-Tip feature will not work
until you let WinSQL fetch the catalog. This is done by clicking on the catalog window.

To turn off initial catalog fetching:
- Click Edit/Options on the main menu
- Uncheck "Fetch catalog after connection" box
- Click ok to close the window.
