If you are have 5 different licenses, have you made sure that each license is installed on a different machine and that no-one has installed the same license on two machines?
With reference to your speed issues, where is the database stored and where is it hosted from? Ideally, the database should be on a local drive of the host.
i will double check, but i thought i made sure i didn't use a license twice...if that is not the probllem, what else could it be?
i have 1 host on a local drive on a fast computer with fast connection. all the other computers access that host thru port forwarding from a different office. those computers have a very fast internet connection and are new and fast also...but when loading the database, it takes several minutes to refresh some pages...and some are not slow, but most are slow...is there anything i can do to speed it up?
