RE: Windows 8, Explorer and single IFS files... slow? (try this)



fixed

I can only tell you this was a bottle neck on our system for a long time
.....and once I found this and tried the change
.....it made all the difference in the world for each pc with Windows 7
.....our problem was somewhat as you described ... very slow opening ifs
files
...........some took a lot longer than the 20-30 seconds you mentioned
......same with just including a single or multiple ifs file on an email
......you could just watch it go thru each layer to get there and back

Yes, I would have tried stopping it and restarting it
......and leaving it on autostart

I found the article I was looking for
.....maybe there is something else in there that can help
.....as you know, attachments don't work here

But search for .... Windows 7 and IBM I NetServer
.....search for Web Client or something else that may stick out

Thanks for the input, Terry.

Tried it, no luck. Mine was running but it was set to manual. I did change
it to auto, though. Should I have stopped and restarted it?

What's interesting is I can open multiple files at once and it's fast as it
should be. But just one file alone is when it's slow.

Try this, it is also a problem in Windows7

Go into Control panel on your pc
.....click on Administrative Tools
.....click on Services
.....scroll down and look for Web Client .....click into it, it
probably says ... manual .....change it to Auto and also Start the
service .....starting in Windows7, the default was changed to manual

You should find a significant improvement in performance

I can't find the document I found for this ....just happened to find
it searching for something totally different

Hope it helps

Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

Running Windows 8 and ever since when I try to view or edit a single
file in the IFS using Windows Explorer, it seems to take a 20-30
seconds to finally start.

Example, right click on an HTML file, edit with dreamweaver or even
Notepad and it takes about 30 seconds.

Now, click on multiple files and it's almost instantaneous.

Copying files doesn't seem to have any difference if it's one or
multiple files. Just when you're using an application to view/edit a
file does it seem to take extra time.

Anyone else notice this? Or any ideas what could cause this? It's
quit annoying. :)
