I help manage an IT company. We work with Dentists, and there are a couple of pieces of software that run slow on Windows 7, whereas they were fast on Windows XP.
We've tried all kinds of things, with limited success. There's a Hotfix from Microsoft (and 3 run-afters) that we've installed, as well as disabling offline file caching,
While this does speed up the systems significantly, they still do not perform as well.
These are non-SQL based databases, and IMO, that's part of the problem. Newer versions of those softwares DO run with SQL, but its a big chunk of change to update and convert these offices.
So - the last thing we haven't tried is disabling SMB 2 and reverting to SMB 1. I've heard this has helped, but we don't want to frankenstein the network too much.
Any thoughts of SMB 2, and disabling it for speed increases?
