Subject Re: [firebird-support] Slow in Win 2k3 server

I am trying out FB1.5 on one PC. unfortunately some queries that
used to work before now fail so we have to be careful when we give
it to our clients.

Anyway, found the problem. If you tell Win2k3 to "OPTIMISE FOR
APPLICATIONS" (instead of services) then firebird performs at the
same speed as Win2K server. That is when FB is installed as a
service. Me being my cynical self, would assert that this is another
deliberate MS ploy to make their stuff run well at the expense of
others.... ie reclassifying what a service is.

To put it in perspective, the reports have gone from 14 seconds
(when optimised for services) downto 2.5 seconds (when optimised
for applications).
