Forms using grid control take about 10 seconds to load first time

I'm evaluating Essential Grid. I'm noticing that the first time a form that contains the grid opens it takes about 10 seconds or so before the form displays. After the first time the form will reload almost instantly. This happens both in VS.NET when I open the form in design mode and in IE6 when I open a web page that is hosting my form with the grid. Can you tell me what is causing the delay? Is it because this is an evaluation version?

BTW, this is just an empty grid so it's not a question of grid population time.

The eval may have some effect on this, but I suspect most of the time has to do with loading the Syncfusion.Grid.DLL and Syncfusion.Shared.DLL that would happen the first time these DLL's are needed. You would also have the first time JIT delay as well.

It must be mostly JIT time. 10 seconds is a LONG time when a user is waiting for a web page to load. Is there anything that can be done about this? If JIT is indeed the problem can the Essential Grid assemblies be pre-JITed?

I am evaluating another WinForm grid and it has no initial-startup delay and the DLLs involved are comparable in size to Essential Grid's.
