Malik,

You could decrease the number of undo steps for schematics and pcb editors, in 
Tools->Preferences menus. This will free up some of your RAM. You could also consider 
adding more RAM. There is a non-linear function between the component count and the 
time it takes to DRC a board. For a component count like yours, it may seem that 
Protel has gone to sleep. The best way I know to solve this is to get a faster machine.

On the other hand you could halve the number of components. It would save you a lot of 
time and your boss will love you.

Subject: [PEDA] Slow Performance of Protel 99SE


Hi All,
         I have P-3 with 256MB RAM and quite a lot of space on Hard Disk but
still sometimes the Protel seems to be crawling rather than running when the
Net Count or component count exceeds 2000. I also perform "Compact After
Close" option when exiting. Can someone give me generic guidelines as to how
to increase the performance of Portel 99SE.
Regards,
Adeel Malik
