We have a test computer that we are using to test out various software applications. This one in particular uses SQL Express 2005. The test computer is Windows 7 Pro, 32-bit OS - 2 GB RAM - 2.40 GHz processor. Is there any known issues relating to the speed of an insert/read from SQL 2005 with Windows 7? I can put the same application on an XP machine and the database reads/writes are quick; but on the Windows 7 machine, they take quite a few seconds (~15). SQL Server is local on the test computer.
