Very slow performance when running any AccuRev operations from within t

"PROBLEM/ABSTRACT:
After installing AccuRev, trying to use the AccuRev GUI from the server or client machine is very slow. Such operations as creating users, depots, streams, workspaces and Dispatch issues take up to 5 minutes to complete. Any of these operations from the command line take seconds to complete.

CAUSE:
The user who was performing these operations had their home directory on a mapped network drive. From the output of the 'set' command, you can see the HOMEDRIVE variable was defining a mapped drive.

Snip from 'set' command.
HOMEDRIVE=V:

Snip from 'net use' command.
OK V: \\Patriots\jstanley


SOLUTION 1:

Change the users HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH environment variables so they are using a local drive and directory.

Example:
HOMEDRIVE=c:
HOMEPATH= =\Documents and Settings\jstanley

SOLUTION 2:
Create a accurev.bat which sets the above mentioned variables for the instance of AccuRev. The contents of the bat file should be as follows:

set HOMEDRIVE=C:
set HOMEPATH=\Documents and Settings\jstanley
ACGUI.EXE

This bat file will map your HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH on the fly for that instance of AccuRev.
