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.

Configuration steps

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.
