Hi convit2004,

the connection you can speed up when you change the CPU optimization from serveces to program. The disconnection time will not change, remains long.

An other problem is that XP will after each change the files with extension .GDB save so it will sloww too. This is solved in IB 7 / 7.1 by using extension .IB. I suggest to try as follows:  make a copy of your database, change the extension instead of .GDB to for example .IB6 (the system allows this) then run the application. Of course you have to register with the new name/extension for your application.

I hope it helps.

with best regards

Janos
