Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The application can only open or work as fast as your slowest network link and/or device. If the share is on a slower machine and transmitting over a hlaf-duplex, 10Mbps link it will open slower than a beefier machine on a 100Mbps/Gigabit Link.

Best suggestion: Check for connection speeds, machine capabilities. Next, check for firewalls or other applications or processes that may be choking or sharing resources…

    You should also verify if the mapping you are doing is located in the same network LAN. If you are mapping a remote drive (ie over WAN/VPN/internet link), it will always be as slow as the slowest link you're using.... You refer that the application is very slow. If the above is true (mapping across a slow link) that specific application might not be usable across a slow link. In this case you should consider using any remote access technology (VNC, Remote Desktop, SSH, whatever) to remotely work with that application. Please post back if you need further help.

    Is the application really meant to be shared across a network also? Some applications are not meant to run from a server and/or across a network. The poor performance you describe may be attributed to poor application design also. It is frustrating when the network gets blamed for poor application design.
