Performance issues - 06-30-2003 , 11:18 AM
I have a VB6.0 application accessing MS Access 97 via Microsoft Jet
Everything works fine from a computer running Windows XP with an Intel
processor with 256 mg of memory but it comes to a crawl from a
computer running Windows 98 Second Edition with an AMD processor and
the same amount of memory....
Do I need to replace the CPU or the operating system?

AFAICS this leaves only the OS or the setup of OLEDB, it may be an
idea to check the versions of MDAC
and see if it's a level playing field here, this may also show up any
problems in the setup of MDAC on any particular machine.
Otherwise I would look to the OS, not that 98 itself should slow it
down in any way (in fact I'd expect it to work better accessing
another 98 machine than the XP machine) but there may some problems in
the setup of 98 on that machine.
If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?
