Title

Filemaker 9 running slower than Filemaker 8 on same computers

Post

We have a relatively small network of about a dozen PC and Mac computers. We are currently migrating from FileMaker 8.0v1 to FileMaker 9.0v3 on both the Macs and PCs. The Macs are PowerPC G5s with 1.25Gb RAM, using Operating System X.4.11, whilst the PCs are using Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002, Service Pack 2.
We are serving the file across the network from a Mac running X.4.11 and using FileMaker Server 9.0.
We have noticed a significant difference in the reaction speed when flicking between pages on the same layout. In Filemaker 8, the pages refresh instantly, yet when we open the same file in Filemaker 9 there is a delay of a fraction of a second, which makes navigation between pages frustrating.
I have checked the Preference pane in both Filemaker 8 and 9 and made sure that they match exactly but that hasn't made a difference.
I would be grateful for any light you might be able to shed on our problem.

Thanks in advance

Bill
