The network traffic generated - Win7 needs to be tweaked to handle that.

I get around that by installing a linux server with a samba share - works mostly the same for W2K functionality on a peer to peer share.

Machines are cheap. Linux Distros even cheaper - suggest you get a knoppix cd over at http://www.knoppix.org or http://www.knoppix.de and go forth - revert/keep it as a 'console machine' and nothing with xWinders.

Good Luck !

> I have a system where a win2k professional machine was a file server on which all the dbf files resided. That machine died and was replaced with a win7 professional machine. The old machine was an 800 mhz p6 and this one is a 3.4 Ghz machine. the workstation accessing this peer server are a mixture of win2k, xp, vista and win7 machines (total of 15). No changes have been made to the program just all files where copied from a backup to the new win7 machine.
