Have you ever noticed that the Task Pane in Visual FoxPro can be very slow when accessing the Community tab? Well, I found the reason for this, and it’s easy to fix.
The issue has to do with the deprecation of gotdotnet.com web site, which causes the Task Pane to load slowly. This can be fixed by deleting some rows of PaneContent.dbf:
*-- Open the Task Pane content table
*-- Move problematic web links to OptionPage memo
REPLACE OptionPage WITH Data FOR DataSrc = 'U' AND 'gotdotnet.com' $ LOWER(Data)
REPLACE Data WITH '' FOR DataSrc = 'U' AND 'gotdotnet.com' $ LOWER(Data)
I discovered this cause and the solution tucked away on a recent post by Olaf Doschke on Tek-Tips.com. Link here: http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1753811
