I'm using a MSDE database for my application (which is a VC++ app using ADO .NET)
To start with I was using the default instance to test stuff out. It worked fine.
Now I'm trying to set it up to use a named instance. Both the named and the default instance are on the computer the app is running from. It works (ie my application is able to get stuff out of the database) but it is way slower than for the default instance, like ten times slower or something. Does anyone know why?
