Thanks to you guys you put me down the right trail and i was able to use your
information for confirmation that i was on the right trail!!!!

Disabling SMB2 Cache on the clients registry has made the improvement on

Are there more caches I need to disable??

I tried disabling the Hard drive cached and it did not help at all..It just
slowed down everything.

If someone thinks there is a better way or to add more to this please feel

I also disabled the Oplocks on the client side.  It did not make a difference
in speed.

There are alot of complaints about windows 10 being slow (especially after
a windows update) to access mapped drives.

I am going to start working on our windows 7 clients next week to see if
it helps them also.

Our retired paradox programer rewrote the code to make the two programs work.
 Unfortunately i cannot give the details about the exact fix.  They got it
working on the same day i got the fix on my side so we will never know if
my fix would have corrected their problem.  

Windows 2016 Server
Windows 10 
Paradox 11

MANY thanks to you ALL!!
