Analytic Solver Platform might display, "Checking dependencies…" for a significant amount of time when a model with many constraints and bounds is opened. During this time, Solver is separating the constraints from the bounds in order to display them correctly and obtain correct counts on the Task Pane Model Tab.
If your model contains many constraints and bounds, then it's possible that the Analytic Solver Platform status bar displays "Checking dependencies…" for a considerable amount of time while the Solver categorizes the constraints and bounds on the Task Pane Model Tab. Setting Scan for Bounds to False under Advanced on the Task Pane Platform Tab effectively turns this feature off which will result in a faster model load. Doing so will cause the Solver to assume all bound entries are constraints which will result in erroneous Constraint and Bound counts (found at the bottom of the Task Pane Model Tab). However, there will be no impact during the solving process or on the solution found.
If, for some reason, the correct number of bounds and constraints is needed, the model can be diagnosed by clicking the down arrow under Optimize (on the Risk Solver Platform ribbon) and selecting Analyze without Solving from the menu. Solver will diagnose the model and correctly display the number of constraints and bounds.
