VW SPOTLIGHT 2018 & VISION 2018 Major Issue's


Hi all, over the weekend I have been getting a lot of problems with the upgrade to Vw18 also the Vision package 2018. 
Vectorworks Spotlight with a computer spec that I have I would of thought it would run perfect. But totally the opposite 
Its very slow on a lot of levels and when I push to Vision it crashes. 
I did a full stress test and benchmark test and it passed with flying colours so I am guessing its somewhere with the software.
I have made a list of problems below to try and help
 I am unsure of how to fix and I have a lot of shows to get done in the next few weeks. 
Hopefully it a quick fix !!
1. When starting Vectorworks not sure if this is normal but it takes around 4min to load a file. Even just opening VW it. Takes just as long.
2.Push to Vision crashes (so spotlight just locks up & vision just goes to a big white screen.
3. Insert Tool doesn’t seem to work
4. Having to restart spotlight ( after drawing fixtures in top plan view & then going to 3d view some fixtures disappear
5. Align tool crashes the Vw
6.when I go to open GL the screen goes black for 1-2min
7. Rendering to Dash Hidden Line Crashes Vw
8. The build lamp list takes for ever to load but also not adding up right 
Computer Spec:
Intel Core i7 7820x 8 Core LGA 2066 3.6 GHz CPU Processor 
Corsair Hydro series H100i v2 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler 
Corsair 32GB DDR4 3000MHz
Asus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Turbo 11GB Video Card
Asus TUF X299 Mark 1 ATX Motherboard 
Samsung 250 GB SSD 850 EVO
Microsoft Windows 10 home 64bit OEM
