Slow opening on Windows


FileMaker Server


Filemaker 8 and 10 (for test purpose)

Operating system version

Mac OS 10.5, Mac OS 10.6, Windows XP sp3, Windows 7

Description of the issue

I tested a set of databases, 27 altogether, with a central one that have links with most of the other. When booting the central database on Macintosh or PC's, no problem. When opening the first record, on Mac, no problem, on PC's, it take up to 20 mns.
The databases come from a version 2, then 3, then 5.5.
The "date of the day" automatic function have been converted ayutomatically and is used in almost every database.
When opening the first record, this activates 20 links with display of the informations tied to this record.
Links are based on numeric indexes.
Once the first record is loaded, everything is smooth for the rest of the day.

Help !

Expected result

Getting the same time on PC's as on Macs, ie 5 seconds.
