    VB6 app read files from shared network folder slower in Windows 7 than Windows XP

    We have created a VB6 app on Windows XP some time ago to process files from a shared network directory. After processing the files (which involve updating our ERP - Baan on Oracle) it deletes the files from the share. We did not have any problems with it.

    Now we want to upgrade the OS to Windows 7 and get rid of the old XP cpu. After copying the VB6 app to the new computer and running it, we have noticed that it reads the files several seconds slower than the XP computer. The VB6 app has a window that displays the current files in the network share.

    Both computers are next to each other, connected to the same switch or router by network cable.

    Thanks for your help.

    Is it slow reading or writing or both? or maybe it is just slow locating the files?

    How is the network speed on the new PC in general? It may be something related to the network card or pc configuration and not the program
