UiPath - slow opening Word & Excel

I’m working with Word & Excel within UiPath.

But opening these applications takes approximately 20 seconds ?

I created a test XAML file with just 2 activities

Open App
Message box
Properties for Open App File Name : “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft
Office\Office12\WINWORD.EXE” Selector :

It takes about 20 seconds … no error message … just a 20 second wait !!!

I have tested opening Word using the Windows Run command in Microsoft Azure … it opens immediately !
