Thank you for posting.
This is likely a compatibility issue with the operating system. Have you tried or are you currently using XP Mode?
Have you tried doing a selective startup with just the necessary Windows services and applications?
You could also try sharing the database from another machine to see if there is a connectivity issue with the server.
Thank you for your response.
Yes we have tried XP mode and unfortunately it still is running very slow. We have also tried running it off of another machine and that worked great, very fast, but obviously we cannot leave it at that. Since we were able to run it from that computer, that leads me to believe it's not necessarily an issue with windows 7 64-bit. I don't believe it is a server issue because all of our other machines are running fine from it, including at least 2 machines running vista pro 64-bit. Also, our server is running Server 2003; I did not mention that in the OP.
We have not tried doing a selective startup on the machine yet. That is something we will definitely try and leave a response as to what happens.
Thank you again,
All help is appreciated,
We got it working, here is what we did.
1) Disable Autotuning through the cmd prompt.
2) Removed RDC ( Remote Differential Compression)
in the control panel
3) Removed IPv6 from network properties.
4) Cleared the DNS Cache
Everything seems to be working beautifully :)
