This is a tough one. I don't have all the information but (long story short) I have picked up this support issue which I am trying to solve remotely with limited information.
Here is the scenario.
My client has a custom built java application (compiled AFAIK) that runs with IE and is used to fetch images from a server (Details on actual functionality are scant).
What they have noticed is that the application takes up to 7 seconds longer to execute when the user is logged in with a mandatory profile than if they were using a local or roaming profile.
We have checked all the obvious like missing settings but it definitely seems to have something to do with the profile being mandatory. We have taken a roaming profile that works and just changed the ntuser.dat to ntuser.man - and the problem occurs.
I am pretty sussed on user profiles but java is not my area of expertise.
Anyone have any ideas why this application should perform differently just because of the profile used?
