Slow access to DBF files on shared folder in Win7 Prof RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've a LAN based on 5 XP workstations and one Win7x64 computer with shared folder. No firewall, no antivirus software on this machine. There are some DBF-files in this folder. DOS application is running on these 5 workstations. This application uses shared DBF-files. When I useed share folder based on XP-machine application worked normaly, access to these files was well rounded. After changing the "server" the access is never ending. Browsing/reading/writing data is a horror.

    Have you any ideas?

    Regards.

    Could you please tell more details regarding this sentence” After changing the "server" the access is never ending. Browsing/reading/writing data is a horror.”

    How does the DOS application work here?

    When we configured the application to access the DBF files on Windows 7, have we received any special errors?

    As the application worked well on the Windows XP workstation, might we consider to use process monitor to compare with the same process on Windows 7?

    Troubleshooting with Process Monitor

    Best regards

  • Enable audit on the shared folder on Windows 7, check if the application is accessed the file successfully.

    Maybe the application need some modified to be able to use in windows 7.   Also check the permissions on the shared folder.
