Hi,
I have a Vmware virtual machine running Terminal server 2008 as a member server to an SBS2008.
There are a few users logging to this TS, about 5, and they are all using Office 2007.
One user is using Visio 2007 pro and is complaining that it is very slow.
The other users seem to be ok as they only use word, excel, outlook.
The VM machnie has 10GB RAM allocated and 2 vCPUs.
The disk sybsystem is hardware RAID 5.
Could any one suggest a solution by which i can improve the performance of Visio?

Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately any graphic intensive application like Visio, AutoCAD, and PhotoShop are very slow when accessed with a remote desktop client. Even a wallpapered background is extremely slow to refresh with just a single user. This is a common problem. Server 2008 R2 with the beta SP1 and Remote FX is the first time this has been addressed. SP1 and the remote FX clients make huge improvements to graphic applications and even streaming media. Assuming you are saying the 2008 TS has 10GB of ram and not the host, you may not be able to improve much on the performance with the current software.

More information on Remote FX if interested:
