Compared to my system that used to run pdox great before I had to 
rebuild it.  It has 24GB, dual processors and I'm using Jan's memory 
manager (which does help btw).

The only difference I just noticed is that on the one that works, you 
don't have to give elevated access to run the BDE.  Not sure how or why 
that happened.  It's installed in theory like all the rests using the 
handy installer floating around.
