I have an Windows Application that I use on my XP where the form shows up
right away.

But when I run it on my customers Windows 2003 Server, it can take 30
seconds to a minute to start up.

What would cause that?

The task manager isn't showing real activitiy in the CPU usage window of the
Performance Tab.

Thanks,

Tom

Anti-virus maybe.

There are 10 types of people, those that understand binary and those that don't.

What about disk activity? Is the disk generally very busy? does the
application load lots of data or is itself very large? is the disk highly
fragmented? Does the server need more RAM and is simply paging? Simple test
to cover out all of these in one go: when you launch the application does
the disk light come on and stay or flash (mostly on) until it starts up?

Other thoughts: Is it trying to connect to a network resource which isn't
available on the server and it takes that long for it to timeout?

HTH.

It is possible - but it isn't timing as it does work eventually.

It is accessing the SQL Server and my be having a problem with the amount of
data it is reading.

It is just curious that the problem doesn't happen on my personal machine
access the same amount of data.

Thanks,

Tom
