We have installed a load of new Windows 8 machines over the weekend, and the VB6/ SQL Server apps that ran fine before are running really slowly now.
My laptop is also windows 8 and the applications run fine from there.
They are currently located on a share on the server, but even copying them locally has no effect.
My own thought is that it is the link to the SQL Server which is causing the problem. but I may be wrong.
