Hi Tom,

Win2k was an improvement in terms of non-windows mode printer drivers
and
better system stability, but a step backwards in many instances when it
comes to support for terminal services. Reversion to workstation
defaults
and a more poorly controlled application environment are 2 examples.

One thing that definitely might help, aside from products like tmulimit,
appsense performance manager, threadmaster and (damn, I've forgotten
teknica's product, sorry Alex!) is using application compatibility mode.
This was quietly installed by SP2 (from memory, flakey ;-)) and can be
turned on by registering a DLL, slayerui.dll in %systemroot%AppPatch.
Application properties will then have a compatibility tab as on Windows
XP
and Server 2003.

Regards,

Rick

Is anybody running Access97 apps on this platform.  W2K TS - Citrix MF
FR2.
We rebuilt our systems from NT4.0 TSE to W2K sp3.  Clean rebuilds. We
run
about 5 different access 97 databases.  The DBs were developed in-house
using unconventional database design techniques.  There could be 20
users
running Access at any one time on a server and this would grind to a
halt.
Hardware on the servers is (Dual Pentium 1Ghz) [2GB ram] {4gig pagefile}
on
seperate disc. Plenty of diskspace
=20
In the end I have reverted back to the NT4.0 build. =20
=20
Is this an access 97 / W2K thing. I have found some comments that
suggest
Microsoft know about this problem but are just ignoring it. Is anybody
running this app effectively or have any of you had performance issues
here.
=20
HELP???
