PowerBuilder PB8 and Visual SourceSafe VSS6 - Extremely SLOW
Posted on 2004-09-21
I am developing a PB application with about 3 other users. We are connected together via LAN and I have implemented source control using Microsoft's VSS6. We are working in Windows 2000, all with new, quick, laptops. Our project contains about 80 PBLs in 4 subdirectories (each PBL is in it's own subdirectory one more level down), that total about 50 MBs.
The problem is, when any user is connected to source control, the PB runs EXTREMELY SLOW. For instance, it may take 45 seconds to open a PBL in treeview just to see its objects, or 120 seconds just to save a datawindow. These are tasks that should take only a second or two. Also, to refresh the status of all of the objects in the entire project, about 45 minutes is required.
Can anyone tell me if this is normal for a project of this size?? Can anyone tell me if there is anything that we can do to make things faster? This is becoming very frustrating for our team.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
