Here's what you can do if Retail Pro 9 is running too slow.
- Make sure that your antivirus software is not actively scanning the \Oracle or \Retail9 directories. Scan those at scheduled times.
- Make sure System Restore is turned off.
- Make sure that you regularly reindex and tune your database (inside the Technician’s Toolkit).
- Make sure your pagefile is set to whatever Windows recommends.
- Optimize your system to allocate more resources to BACKGROUND SERVICES, as Oracle is considered a background service, not a program.
