Zoom hangs and becomes unresponsive when joining meetings


Hi, I have a user with such a problem that Zoom will hang or take very long to respond when joining a meeting. Is there any settings I could change or try?



On Windows 10 64 bit and Zoom 64 bit client

Hi @REA_admin 


Is the Zoom client on the latest version (5.8.3)?


Does it make a difference how many participants there are?


What is the hardware specification of the computer?


Hello, we are on 5.8.3 x64 and encountering the same issue as REA_admin. Downgrading to 5.8.1 x64 resolved the issue. Is this a known issue with the 5.8.3 x64 Windows client?

Where do you get the older version?
