We've inherited a legacy application which uses BarTender 2021 R5 and the .NET SDK from a .NET 4.5.1 application.
We are looking for ways to diagnose and increase the performance of the production of Barcodes, and I'm looking for some advice have some questions which I'm hoping you can help with:
1) Is there a way to turn on logging in BarTender to allow us to confirm that BarTender rendering times are the issue and not with the calling code?
2) Is it true BarTender is using SQL Express for some internal things? Could this be the reason for our slowdown (we have seen many problems and limitations with SQL Express)?
3) Is there any documentation, support, tips and tricks to make BarTender as fast as possible?
4) Would upgrading to the latest version / 64Bit make a positive performance impact on the performance? Is the latest version compatible with 2021 R5 or will we need to make coding changes?
Thanks in advance for your help
