If Sherlock runs slowly when doing large projects and your computer has ample amounts of memory there is likely a Java issue. The main issue is that a 32 bit version of Java is installed which can not utilize the memory available.

The best fix is to download and install the 64 bit java version from Oracle. ... leId=75261

Once this version is installed you can modify the setjava.cmd file or reinstall Sherlock to have it use the new java install.

To modify the setjava.cmd, navigate to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\DfR Solutions\Sherlock\

Using a text editor modify
C:\Program Files (x86)\DfR Solutions\Sherlock\SetJava.cmd
Change it from:
Set java = c:/Program Files (x86)/Java/jre7/bin/java.exe
Set java = c:/Program Files/Java/jre7/bin/java.exe

To increase the memory that Sherlock allocates at start up you will need to modify the SherlockClient.bat file located at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\DfR Solutions\Sherlock\SherlockClient.bat

on line 21, there is the following command
set javaopts=-Xmx1536M -Xss2M

Modify the first setting (-Xmx1536M) to reflect a higher memory amount
The following sets Sherlock to use 2.0G instead of 1.5G
set javaopts=-Xmx2048M -Xss2M

Starting in Version 3.0.1, memory settings can be changed using the convenient "Launcher Settings" dialog available in the Sherlock Client, Sherlock Result Viewer and Sherlock 3D Viewer.
