i have a vb6 app that writes data to a msde 7 db (in batches). when i run the process inhouse the entire process takes just under 2.30 min to save a batch of 50 records. when i run the process onsite it takes about 20 to 25 min to save the exact same batch. both enviroments are are set up the same (both have win xp and the db it is writing to is local). i took a copy of my onsite db and ran it inhouse and the results were fine (2.30 min to save the batch of 50). this process was running fine onsite up until a month and a half ago. does any one know what might of caused this issue (virus, xp updates, db curput). or does any one have any ideas on what i can try to resolve this issue.
