.NET application on 64-bit workstation connecting to 32-bit server slower than with 32-bit workstations RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently purchased some new Windows 7 64-bit computers for a client in a mixed environment with a 32-bit Windows 2003 server and 32-bit Windows 7 and Windows XP workstations. I have found that in general the new 64-bit Windows 7 computers run very fast, with one exception. We have a .NET and SQL 2005-based applications that is hosted on a 32-bit Windows 2003 server that performs better using 32-bit Windows 7 and 32-bit Windows XP than on the 64-bit Windows 7 computer. Is it a common problem that 64-bit Windows 7 computers perform slower than 32-bit Windows 7 or XP computers if the host is 32-bit? Is there any way to increase the performance without replacing the server? Thanks, Aaron.
