That sounds about right. The 6v2 Windows binary is not particularly optimized, and will run more slowly than the Linux binary on an equivalent system. I have reproduced the OP's problem - Modeller does not 'hang' at the point of reading the restraints, but simply takes a long time. The job completes in 2 minutes on a 3GHz Xeon running Linux, but in 20 minutes on a 1.6GHz Windows box. We are aware of this problem, and expect there to be little or no difference in runtime between equivalent Linux and Windows machines with the next Modeller release.

While we expect to continue to provide Windows and Mac Modeller builds, the majority of development here is conducted on Unix machines, and thus they are likely to always be better supported.
