Slow Playback



I have been building a TestComplete suite of keyword tests. Lately though, when I am recording and playing back it has become frustratingly slow. So much that even key strokes take several minutes for a short string.


Has anyone experienced this and how to resolve it?

What version of TestComplete are you using? 


Here are some best practices that can help you fine tune things


Make sure that TestComplete and your application under test are the only applications running on your computer.  TestComplete likes lots of memory.
