.NET application performace

EA
We have found that a VB.NET rich windows application runs quite slower that a
similar application in VB6. The forms in VB.NET take an awful time to open
the first time, second time is better but slower than the similar VB6
application.
Also the general performance is worse in .NET than in VB6. We use the SQL
adapter and so on. We developed the second tier in C# to manage the business
objects, the design seems to be right but the custemers are quite frustrated.

Is there any compilation option in .NET that will speed up the time screens
take to open?

Can I compile my applications in native mode so they run faster?

Thanks.

I think it really depends how you designed your application, are you loading
any data in load events of your dialogs

Hi,

First of all rememenber that when you compile aan application, all modules
gets compile in Intermediate language (IL)
When you then run your application the CLR, transform the IL language into
binarz ssystem compatible code. Note also that code execution goes with the
JIT (Just in Time compilation), which mean that code is binary compile at the
time is called.

The way to optimize your application performance is to preconpile you code
in IL mode, by using KeyGen .net tools.

For more information check under SDK, .net tool

hope it helps

AFAIAK, each iteration of software development tools creates slower
software, not matter what the vendors tell you.
