MYOB and SBS 2K3 in Aus

    Did a sales pitch yesterday for a small company running MYOB over a peer
    network. Data file is on a Windows 2000 Pro machine. Sold them SBS2K3. New
    client talks to MYOB consultant. Consultant rings up and recommends Windows
    Server 2003 Stamdard, says that MYOB won't support SBS 2K3 - reason is that
    for best speed over the network, MYOB recommends running TS connections to
    the server from the workstations, and SBS2K3 doesn't support Application
    Sharing Mode. Hmm. Anyone else had experience with MYOB on SBS2K3 - are
    there any real speed issues, or am I just becoming paranoid (again)?

  2. I have clients now running MYOB off SBS 2000 Servers and also off SBS 2003
    Servers with no issues at all and we have been doing this since SBS 2000
    came out and continued it with SBS 2003

    Susan,
    Re your comment: These guys are the biggest accounting software suppliers in
    Australia, and since I don't want to get sued - well, there are probably
    some rather critical remarks I can't say publicly, but you can!

    Thanks Roger - I need all the evidential support I can get - this MYOB
    "expert" is undermining our case for SBS!

  5. Like I said the users have no issues at all with running MYOB through the
    network. That is one thing they do not complain about is that program.

  6. Intuit... Quickbooks.. requires power user rights for their 2004 program.

    Feel free to say critical remarks about USA's biggest accounting
    software program. There .... International trade at it's finest.

    I swear to gosh that beancounter programs are still written with a
    Windows 98 frame of mind.

    .....try 8 bit DOS core code with a Windows GUI some are still using Flat
    Files, and others have Hacks to talk to real world databases. - and
    didn't they squeal when they couldn't use the old Btrieve anymore.

    Hi Norm

    We've got MYOB Premier running in our office and are having speed issues.

    Once your file gets over 70 meg it starts to slow down.

    We've tried all the MYOB suggestions but still no success.

    We've got several different files we work with rangeing from 10meg to
    100meg. The 100meg file is slow when the users need to do any serious work
    with it they end up copying it to their local machine and working on it.

    MYOB is bad for networking from my experience once your files get to a
    certain size.

    To be honest if you can see the file getting any bigger than 50mb I
    recommend the TS solution.

    Hope I was able to help

  10. Heck, Peachtree 2004 still uses the same Btrieve engine since the old DOS
    days! Which is totally unsuported by Pervasive a loooong time ago and it was
    never tested in 2k/XP.
