AutoCAD 2000 real slow performance

Chris,

I have a Penitium II 300, Asus motherboard, 128 Mb RAM, Windows NT 4.0
Service Pack 6 and all AutoCAD 2000 patches installed. Everything is fine
for me!

Did you try to format and install a fresh copy of Windows NT 4.0
and AutoCAD 2000?

Some problems may occur from incorrect installation of other application. A
good test is to install the minimal software, in other
words, Windows NT 4.0 (with Service Pack 6) and AutoCAD 2000. After that try
to install one by one application to see if anyone is causing the problem.

Fernando.

Chris,

Your network is base on a Windows NT Server?
Do you have any AutoCAD 2000 settings files like Plot CTB files been used
from a network share?
Is TCP/IP your default network protocol?

Our network base is novell, except the CAD server is a NT server that is
part of our domain. We are running NDS4NT. The default protocol should be
IP now that we are implementing Netware 5.0. Plus this the only thing we
pull from the network is the data, that is stored on a Novell 5.0 server.
The install is the default install with nothing changed except the path for
the default save directory.
Thanks,
Chris

Download the C99 Benchmark from CADALYST magazine ( www.cadonline.com ).
Run the benchmark and compare it to other machine.
