I'd like to hear from users of any program, but I've only used SKM. My project has about 1200 buses and 3500 components and it is just taking forever to run an arc flash analysis (like 5-10 mins actually). It looks like the program freezes, it grows faint and the titlebar says "(Not Responding)" at the end. I'm wondering if it's my computer, or the software or just the project size, or maybe all 3.

My CPU never goes above 25% when running a calculation, I feel like it should be going to 100% instead of "freezing" or taking forever. Memory stays pretty flat at 25% too. I moved all the LIB and BIN files off the network, onto my PC which helped a little. Same with the project files. I've read that SKM is still 32-bit, maybe if they made it 64-bit it would faster?

Has anybody had more success with one of the other programs? Or have any good hacks for SKM?
