Heavy Behavior VW2016 Spotlight in MacBook Pro 2016 w/o TouchBar



I'm using VW2016 Spotlight Site Protection Network Ver. (Japanese:サイトプロテクションネットワーク版) on new released MacBook Pro w/o TouchBar.

It is so heavy behavior, pan, input text, and all movement does not move as I want.

I Installed SP6, but not changed there symptom.

I'm think of problem of Hardware, but browsing website etc other behavior is not late.

Have I that solution?


Using Laptop : MacBook Pro 2016(without TouchBar)

OS Version : OS X Sierra(10.12.2)

VW Version : 2016 SP6 Japanese Edition

Memory and SSD is normal.

Using Windows 10 in BootCamp.

Running VW2016 in Macintosh.

I see the only model without TouchBar is a 13" MBP.

Both 13" MBP have no dedicated GPU, just onboard intel IRIS graphics.


Both MBP 15" have an additional AMD Radeon Pro GPU.

Does your MacBook Pro model have a special separate Graphics Card ?

The onboard graphic only is not recommended.




Thanks answer.

But, my colleague using MacBookPro 13" with TouchBar, that is smooth behavior.

There's conditions is about same...

Moreover, my colleague's VW2016 is SP3.

Sorry I thought it is about VW 2017.

I had a discussion on the german forum where someone tried VW 2017 on his new 2016 MBP 13"

It does not start without destroying the graphics of the whole OS and needs a forced reboot.

Even when deactivating the default performance mode for GPU manually in preference file.

It could simply be a that Apples GPU drivers are not ready, as I was always used in the past

with new Apple hardware.

Maybe VW would work on a weak windows machine although it has no discrete GPU but better

drivers, but so far I have no proof.


I just saw you are using Windows on Bootcamp.


Is your colleagues MBP also the new 2016 Model using 10.12 Sierra ?
Or using VW also on Bootcamp ?
