Hi all. New to this board. Apologies in advance if my desecription is not up to standards here.
Host System: Fedora 30: kernel 5.4.7-100; nvidia driver version 440.44
Guest System: Windows 7Pro Excel from MS Office 2013.
I just upgraded from Workstation Pro 15.1.0 (with vmmon and vmnet patched with
to Workstation Pro 15.5.1, also properly patched.
After the upgrade, Excel got very, very slow. Scrolling with the scroll-bar
was unusable, and quickly moving the active cell by holding down pointer keys had big delays,
making motion very frustrating and time-consuming.
Under 15.1.0 there was a bit of sluggishness, but it was tolerable. Now the sluggishness
is at least 5 times as bad, making rapid movement unusable.
I re-installed 15.1.0 and the sluggishness went back to the tolerable level
before the upgrade. Everything else on my machine remained constant.
PowerPoint did not seem affected, nor did anything else I checked.
Does anyone have suggestions or clues?
Thanks very much!
