I also am running Windows 10 (Enterprise - version 1709, build 16299.309)
and just updated from 2.6.19 to 3.0 (eng_au) without any issues apart from
the gigantic tabs across the top of the window which no doubt I'll have to
tweak to reduce the size to the same size they were in 2.6.9.
I have the same issue when I upgraded it to 3.0 from 2.6.19.
After I opened 3.0, the initial screen opened, then nothing happened.
Now I downgraded it to 2.6.20.
OS: Windows 10 Pro (up to date)

I'm running Windows 10. Just downloaded 3.0 and tried to install it twice.
Each time after the install, I click to run the program and it does...
nothing. Even if I try and run it as an administrator.
So, just see if you have the same symptoms and, if so, follow the progress
on the issue of slow loading and contribute some new facts.
This issue currently affects sqlite (in some cases?) and that may or may not
be your case.
John has already reported that improvements are being made in loading of
slots and splits (if I remember well), as well as other optimizations, which
should improve the situation.
