I'm supporting a win10 newtwork, about 30 users, all p10.. the way the 
stupid app was built, there are about 400 table and index files open at 
once, all day, all getting beat on by everyone at once, all day.. I have to 
shut them down and rebuild tables way more of than than I'd like, but it's 
still kinda remarkable that it works.. crashes aren't an issue

there's gonna be something they have in common.. how they were configured or 
upgraded, which part of the system they're running on, which printers are 
installed, which processes they run.. something

did see one interesting tidbit the other day.. they installed office 
365/2019 on a machine, and paradox stopped sending emails.. somebody got the 
idea that, instead of calling me, maybe paradox needed to be installed with 
compatibility mode, and they chose XP.. paradox stopped seeing the network

Is there any indication that newer versions of Paradox work better?
We are upgrading to win10 from win7 and paradox issues are not better
(and much worse on some computers).
