Scenario: Visual Studio 2008 (version 9) is installed on two machines:
- a desktop machine: 512 MB RAM, 1.4 GHz CPU, Windows XP (Service Pack unknown).
- a new laptop 4 GB RAM, dual 2.1 GHz CPU, 64-bit CPU, Windows 7.
While running a web project, loading/debugging and then navigating to page takes approx. < 1 second. On the laptop machine, the same actions take more than 3 seconds (sometimes ~ 2.8 seconds).
Question: What might cause the compilation and loading of the same VS project to be slower on the new machine? Are there settings I can tweak to make it more suitable for my computer?
-edit- i notice the answer link isnt valid. The problem had to do with ip6 and setting network.dns.disableIPv6 on firefox to true
