.EXE on the server vs the workstation - performance?

.EXE on the server vs the workstation - performance?

We currently have our Win98 workstations running the .exe's stored on our Windows NT server.  We are using ACCPAC Advantage Enterprise v5.  Performance is very poor. I would install the exe's locally on each workstation if it would make a significant difference.  Does anyone have any insight as to whether this really helps, or is there something else I should do that would improve performance. Thanks

RE: .EXE on the server vs the workstation - performance?

I've heard that speeds things up... remember windoze is designed to be sexy not fast and can't touch the speed of character based systems...
