different speed of commandline execution on 2 different PCs

hello, I've created a script to run command line and load a specific case in RadiAnt

the sintax of such .bat file is:

RadiAntViewer.exe" -pstv 00100010 "PATIENT^NAME" -pstv 00080020 "20210201"

I have a macro that extracts the patient's name and the exam date from the radiological report of that patient and fills the string of the .bat file with the proper values.

that script works fine but there's a problem...

in some computers it is extremely fast... once I run the macro, the RadiAnt UI immediately appears and immediately retrieves the images from the PACS

on another computer (which unfortunately is the machine I use most of the time) there's a very strange slowdown.... RadiAnt UI appears immediately but it take almost 10 seconds before showing images...

any idea why the speed is so different on those 2 computers?
the slow one is a new Win10 machine, while the fast is an old Win7 machine

both computers are on the same network... the macro is the same...

I can't figure out what's causing the slowdown...
is there any way I can debug and understand why the performance is so divergent?

Maybe there is another PACS/DICOM node added which is that slow? Or even not responding one, so waiting for timeout?

you are right.

in the problematic PC, there was still an old discontinued DICOM node that was probably still being invoked by commandline queries.

removing it, it became fast like the other PCs
