Macros in Win16 app freeze w/slow connection

There were no application entries in registry for win16 applications. I 
added them and added "use_Deferral" parameter set to zero. Is that 
what you meant?

Also, while I'll test the results, I'd like to understand (since I actually 
have 4 machines in similar configuration) - is the problem specifical to 
Win16 applications, or slow modem connection - should I also set this 
option for Win32 apps on these machines?
