Act / Outlook Address Book

Re: Act / Outlook Address Book

Setup a new blank database on the same network server and drive as the "Problem" database.

 

2 contacts with email addresses in this TEST database.

Setup the Outlook integration and tested on 2 connected network workstations (changed address book on the network stations and verified the correct TEST address book.)

The 1 minute+ delay while opening Outlook is still there as well as the seemingly random delays

Once again, if I disconnect the address book Outlook opens within 2 seconds instead of 1 minute.

 

Will try some hardware changes and see what that does for me.

Re: Act / Outlook Address Book

None of these fixes helped at all.

And Act is just loading death slow even just the program, without a databse.

 

So I put an SSD as a new blank drive and reinstalled ACT with HF5 on that SSD (nothing else on it).

WOW.  that thing is lightning fast.

Act loads itself in 2 seconds and loads the DATABSE in another 7 seconds after clearing the password screen.

 

Might have to delpoy an SSD for each user.
