    Greeting to all,
    I developed an Access 2000 application with FE/BE. Before deploy to the
    users, I do the test on my desktop. I have two computers, one is a 5 yesrs
    old Windows 2000, the other one is an 1 year old Widows XP, they both have
    same memory 512 meg. When doing the test, XP seems slow to add new record or
    update, but 2000 is much faster.
    I reviewed the advise form
    http://www.granite.ab.ca.access/performancegaq.htm , I seems follow all the
    rules. There will be about 10 users for this application. If it slow even
    with two computers, how can I deploy to the users. Any idea to improve the
    situation? Thanks very much.

    Are you using Access 2000 on XP machine, or some newer version?

    If you are using access 2002 - 2003 on XP machine, convert your app to new
    format, and it will be ok.
    I had lot of problems running access 2000 app from access 2002, especially
    with linked tables. It was so slow that it's pretty much useless. I never
    tried it with running 2000 app from access2003, but i suspect it would be
    similar. Conversion is straight forward, so you can continue developing in
    2000, and just for deployment convert it to apropriate version.

    If you are using Access 2000 on all computers, there shouldn't be any
    difference.

    Regards

    Does the slow machine have Google Desktop or a similar disk indexing tool?
    (I once saw this affect a user's Access MDB performance Win XP machine.)

    Also, is the slow machine, in general, more cluttered with programs running
    in the background? Has the disk been defragmented lately?

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that if the Access app runs fine on one box
    but not on another, then look at the computer first.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
