VFP9 exe runs slow on WIN7 64-bit machines
Posted on 2014-11-03
35 - 40 concurrent sessions running a single VFP9 exe file on a virtual (Hyper v) windows server 2008 R2 SP1 12 GB RAM 64-bit server. Host machine is a Windows Server 2012 R2 standard 486 GB 64-bit Dell T420 machine.
1 user can log in and a specific application task will take 8-10 seconds. Additional users logging in extend the application time to 35-45 seconds. A new Win7 professional 64-bit 4 GB RAM machines takes 1:10 seconds to perform the same task with multiple users logged in. Older style 32-bit machines seem to run faster than the 64-bit machines, but overall time to perform tasks has gotten significantly worse with all machines.
Most users are running WIN7 professional (mix of 32 and 64 bit machines). What can I do to facilitate faster application response time on our network? I assume from reading other posts it's not a VFP issue as much as they way the network is allowing data to be accessed. Is that correct? If so, what's a user to do that depends on VFP9 ??
Thanks for your response.
