Hello all,

I am running FM 5.5 Unlimited on a Windows 2000 PC. On the client side they are using 5.5 pro with windows XP.

I have created FM shortcuts to different databases that are on the server, via a script. When they launch the shortcut it can take up to 5mins or longer to open up the database. I found a tech note way back when that said to delete my temp files and that worked but it is only a temp solution. Anyone have this issue or a solution?

Thanks,

Jaser

Deleting the temp files *is* the solution like you've seen. Deleting temp files is (or at least should be) part of regular maintenance. You can easily write a batch file or VBscript logon script to delete old temp files when the machine boots.

Also when you say "shortcuts": do you mean real OS shortcuts or just small FileMaker opener files? If you're using OS shortcuts that means the the FM files are shared through the OS, and that will always result in slow performance (and possible file corruption in the long run).
