I have a strange problem with a DOS application which runs off W2K laptops. When the laptops are connected to the LAN and swithced on for a full boot up the dos app opens fine. But when the laptops are off the LAN or if the LAN cable is inserted when the OS is fully loaded up then the DOS application takes an age to start/open!. This is also true when exiting the DOS app.
I have tried fiddling with the DOS app's memory settings etc.
Any help is great!
