So here's the scoop:
The company where I work has a few GUI-based Java programs that runs crazy fast in Windows XP. Upon upgrading 6 machines to Windows 7 (and yes, we definitely exceed the requirements to run Windows 7 on our machines), these Java programs run significantly slower (For example: logging into takes 5 seconds to load the program in XP. It now takes a minute in Windows 7). We're running Java 6 version 18. I've been researching this for hours and can't seem to figure out why Java is so terrible on windows 7. Anyone hear of anything coming out of the Sun/Oracle or Microsoft camps (or elsewhere) in regards to this issue? I read somewhere that switching the compatibility mode for java.exe to Windows Vista or XP would solve the trick, but this solution didn't work for us.
I will also note that our .NET applications (and ever other application for that matter.. Office 2007, Firefox, etc) run just fine.
If there's a similar thread to this, I can't find it.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided!
