W2k and 16bit app working slowly

Last Modified: 2010-04-14
I know that 16bit app and w2k are conflicting words...I have a customer that has to use this particular 16bit app to get customer data. There aren't any 32bit revisions either. The app works but very slowly. At times it has worked fairly quickly, it seems to work okay as long as nobody else is in the application. the app resides on their network and is accessed via a mapped drive. I've registered the slayerui.dll file to get the compatibility mode enabled but this app doesn't show the compatibility tab. Any suggestions on getting this to work fast would be helpful.
