250MB capture file which takes 35 minutes to open

I have a 250 MB pcap file with 170,000 frames, which takes 35 minutes to open with Wireshark 2.4.2 on my VDI. This file comes from Riverbed ARX. In environment where it was captured I can only access Wireshark 1.14, which opens this file in 5 seconds.

So, you might think that there is a problem with my VDI or my Wireshark 2.4.2 install. Well, I have other large files (e.g. 1.8 GB with more than 300,000 frames) which I can open in 25 seconds on VDI with Wireshark 2.4.2.

Any suggestions on how I can investigate and fix this issue?
