Boost startup time

Post by powi » Sun Feb 09, 2020 1:07 pm

I'm running Wine 5.0 on a relatively fast CPU (i5-8250U) and a SSD.
When I start any Windows program for the first time after login, there's a 3 second waiting period, even with a small executable like PuTTY.
Once Wine has started for the first time, the same or any other small executable (like IrfanView for example) will start within 200-500ms, which is almost as fast as on native Windows. So it seems like the whole Wine environment is cached once it has been called for the first time.

Is there any way to preload this environment upon startup to speedup the loading process?
I've tried adding wineserver -p to the startup process, but that didn't change the 3s waiting period.
