Hi Depot. I'm not sure why your QB 7.1 is running slow. Mine is running as expected.

Is it QB 7.1 itself that runs slow or programs you are running from withing QB 7.1?

If it's a program could you post an example of a program that runs slow so I can run it myself and see what's going on?

Then I'll be able to help you out adequately :-).

Yeah.. different codes can go at different speeds.. Mustly ones using advance math, or numerus calculations tend to run really slow, thus why 3D is probaly not more widely used in QB.. But not just 3D, if you have a huge amont of code to run, it will go slower..

Also, it can run very slow if the program is I/O bound, that is, if it does a lot of disk I/O and especially a lot of screen I/O.
If you are ahead of me, lead.
If you are behind me, follow.
If you are not doing anything,
Get out of the way.
