Ever since we upgraded to 8.0 we have had issues with opening files across a network from within ArchiCAD. This is definitely an issue with ArchiCAD because it only happens while trying to open a file from within ArchiCAD or Plotmaker, not any other program. This problem does not occur with any other program. It does not happen when accessing folders in the finder, only in AC & PM. It is not the opening of the file that is problem either. It happens while navigating within folders, it takes anywhere between 30 seconds and 5 minutes just to navigate within a folder (opening a file that is within a folder that is within another folder). We are on Mac OS 10.2.8 896mb ram, 733 mhz processor. 100 base t network.
I have tried many different things but so far nothing has helped. I was hoping that upgrading to AC 8.1 would solve the problem but to my dissapointment it did not. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. HELP!!!!!!!!
This isn't much help, but our problems with slow network performance went away with AC8.1. We are using OSX Server 10.2 on 10/100 ethernet. I am using Panther but we haven't upgraded any of the other machines yet. Loading very large layout books is still a bit slow.
