I"m hoping to get some assistance with improving the speed of MYOB 2017.1.1
End customer previously upgraded from Premier 19 to MYOB 2017.1 - previous Premier 19 installation was running perfectly in the Remote Desktop Services environment. The Data File is located on the server.
MYOB 2017.1.1 SE installed on Windows 2012 R2
Confirmed .NET Framework installed
We have gone through the standard Speed and Performance references on this forum.
We have checked the File and Folder Permissions
Disabled Antivirus and Firewall on Server
End customer constantly receiving "Unable to connect" - "The connection to the server was lost. Please check that the server is on and connected to the network"
End customer's access is constantly slow and freezing when using the application within the Remote Desktop Server and also outside of the Remote Desktop Server is very slow.
Please also find attached Diagnostic Log File.
I am having the same problem with AR2017
Did you get a resolution?
I run an IT firm and I can tell you EVERY SINGLE CLIENT who has upgraded to Accountright 2017 finds it incredibly slow, far far slower in every way than v19. Slower to record, slower to look up, slower to print, constant freezeups. These are clients with LOCAL DATA FILES, and new local data files under 50MB and also clients who converted larger files. The size doesn't matter. Accountright 2017 is a complete and utter joke, a total failure. These clients are running MYOB on local computers with solid state drives and still experiencing aproduct FAR INFERIOR to v19.
DO NOT UPGRADE TO 2017. As MYOB have completely and totally failed to directly addressthis major issue (just search the forum to see there pathetic non-responses) I can only recomend moving to a different product.

We have recently upgraded from v19 to 2017.2 and have found the same
We upgraded due to MYOB crashing on 19.13
No miracles on fixing this?
Much easier to fix the issues on v19.13 that were causing the problem. As you can tell from @ntechsolutions post, the problems with AR2017 affect many many users. MYOB are not serious about fixing it - they have had over 25 updates since releasing AR2011, and while performance has improved considerably since AR2011, it is still far from ideal.
If they fixed all the problems I would heartily endorse it and encourage users to upgrade - as it is, it only works for the smallest of users, can't recommend it.
PM me if you want some suggestions about the v19.13 issues.
