We recently purchased a new system, with dual NVidia cards (600 and 2000). The 600 is used for 2 20" (1280 resolution) and the 2000 is used on a 30" display (2600 resolution). The system has 12 GB of RAM, Xeon 6 core processor, and windows 7 x64. When the user updates a book on the network, it takes about 10 minutes. Same changes on another system using same book running Win7 x64 takes 10 seconds; thsi PC is older and only has an NVidia 600 with dual 20" monitors.
Also when he is browsing the pages, at some point it slows down and stops before continuing. All FM work is done on the 30", the other 2 displays are used for Outlook and Internet only.
I have installed all the updates for FM7 and am using the video driver from NVidia website.
I am their network administrator and IT person. I am not all that familiar with FM, It is just that the end-users are now stumped as to why it is happening.
FM7 is haphazard on a Win7 64-bit platform, as it's ancient (four major releases old) and not supported in any way, shape or form by Adobe anymore. You could try running it in XP compatibility mode. Also, older versions and working off a network were also quite dicey propositions. Try having all of the book files locally.
