DB Application running very slow on WinXp


I wrote a software in Delphi6, that worked perfectly on Win98. this software is directing the BDE via the local network.
Changing the operation system to WinXp resulted the program to run much much slower.

I really dont know what could be the reason.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Another problem is the antivirus you use on your server, on af our client had one on the server and it tried to inspect the gdb all the time it was used !!!!
Check that !

Do you still have the code and are able to recompile - i would recommend switching over to ADO...

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Search the way win XP find your databse. You can change it to another protocol or put the right protocol in from ofthe other. Open the BDE and try to make a query, thi is to test without your application. We have many application runnning wit hthe BDE and for this kind of problems it wasn't Delphi but the BDE or Win XP itself (many protocols on the network...TCP/IP, Novell...TCP/IP wasn't the first one, use of Named Pipes is consumming security check, etc)

If you are using Interbase any older that 7
and FireBirdSQL older than 1.5 so you must
change the extension of your database on
the server if it is "*.gdb". XP catches it on
System Recovery Backup feature and treat
llike a system file.

Other than, hear lbellego e  see if XP is getting
messy with network protocols
