Stager slov to open and save files

I made a template file with a hdr lightsource and a few extra lights. No models except a ground plane imported from assets. No materials except a basic white material for the ground plane. With the app already fired up this file, 2,8 mb, takes 30 seconds to open. It will load to 100% and stay there for a while, then the progress bar disappear and it takes a loooong time before the empty scene appear.


Likewise during saves, even empty scenes take a long time to save. I'm on a 2019 macbook Pro, plenty of free hd space and 32 mb ram, nothing else open.


During open I checked with the activity monitor, it seems something called Substance Stager Helper is doing a lot of work in the background and could be the cause of this delay. So I'm wondering what kind of processes are going on. In any case it's unacceptable for professional work.
