We use the MiniMRP for 6 users, using the simple centralized database. But we seem to have performance issues, with lots of (not responding) showing up frequently.
Will this go away, if we use a proper database?

Is your shared database and all the users on the same local network or are any users connecting remotely?

If you're all on the same network then you shouldn't be seeing any delays.

What is your setup? Local, remote? Where is the database shared? On one of the user computers? On a proper server or NAS drive?

All is local, and on a shared NAS drive.

Is it possible that the NAS is going to sleep? Drive spinning down or something and needs a moment to pick up again?

What does that "Not Responding" error message look like? can you take a screen shot and email it? Thanks. Does it crash the program or do you just click the button to try again?

OK, so i checked the NAS, and it is definitely not spinning down the drives.
Nothing crashes, it just takes a long while to save changes etc.

I'm thinking that this might have something to do with the change from Win7 to Win10, as the network drives behaves oddly in Win10. So, that's where i'm searching at the moment.
The Web is overflowing with people that have problems with network drives in Win10.

Stay tuned.

Just for a test you could move your shared folder to a computer and see if the other users get a better response.

Is your NAS drive one of those that has MySQL built in? Many do nowadays. If it does then the next version due around April will be able to use the mysql server and that should speed things up.

Also, you mentioned a "not responding" error message? I's still like to see what that looks like. Next time it happens please take a screenshot and email it us.
