Slow Access from XP to 2008 R2 Server

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hi There!

We have a network which was recently migrated from Netware 6.5 to Windows 2008 R2. All the workstations were existing except 2 identical PC's one with XP and the other with Win7 Pro 32 Bit.

All the XP Machines including the new are complaining about slowness in a particular app, which was running fine before the migration. I called the Vendor (MYOB) who said, that it was a known issue but couldn't give me specific information. I believe it relates to a registry entry or a tuning option which isn't compatible between 2008 r2 and XP,  

The application is MYOB Accountants Office Enterprise.

The Win7 Machine is running fine.

Other than the one application (Not client server), the XP Machines can access the network fine it would seem, just this one application.

Anyone know what the setting(s) might be?

it's a 100Mbit Network. 12 Workstations.
