Windows Slowness

Hi Matthias. 

Well I was pointing out that the same dataset returned on a Mac takes 3 seconds, so the windows fetch returns the same data over 4 times slower, and this is consistent no matter the Windows system I am using. I also have techs in the field that use the app, and it is painfully slow for them. 2 techs use the app on Macs and we both are getting around 3 seconds to load a dataset. 

FYI the information retrieved is a customer record, all sites for that customer which is mostly address data, all the device records for the first site (in this case only one device) which is about the same amount of data as the site contains, all the contacts for the site, and all the file data attached to the device minus the binary blobs containing the actual files. 

It's really very little data.
