 16 bits Version faster than 32 bits ?????

Hi,

   I compile the same application in 16 bits & 32 bits version. This
applications Merge 4 database (dbf, access) into TPS file. The 16 bits is
about 16-20% faster than the 32bits version. why ?????
Anyone can answer this question ?

Thank you

Good question, we have some fairly large apps we had to compile in 32 bit.
We have started using the DET templates so we thought we would tried them
in 16 bit. They now compile no problem and they also run faster in 16 bit.

My guess is that you are running Windows 95 with FAT.  What is happening is
your 32bit program is talking to a 16 bit file system.  So the system is
constantly changing between 32bit and 16bit.  Your 16bit program is going
directly at the OS.  Under NT or FAT32 you would probably find the 32bit
program to be faster.
