I run an industry specific software that was created for XP.
This program runs well on a win 7 machine with 3 gigs; runs very slow on a win 7 machine with 6 gigs and even slower on a win 8 machine with 6 gigs.
I made changes with the compatibility settings for XP sp3 or 2 without success. Clearly I'm baffled that on one of the Win 7 machines, it runs fine, but another win 7 and the win 8- the most important of the machines- it run too slow.
If its any help, the program depends on an algorithm to redraw images. On XP with a minimal about of resources, it runs fast.
thanks for your help
