it seems to have been corrected by adding the pbtheme.dll to the runtime.
I did not see this as a required .DLL in the documentation

Kindly can you please provide a simple test case(PBL+Data) to us to reproduce it?
Thanks in advance.

the speed to tests using the runtime was done on a windows 2008 R2

My developmental computer, windows 10 Home, in development mode, ran anf completed the the report using the same database in both powerbuilder 2018 and powerbuilder2019 in 15 seconds.

The report fills in a datawindow showing a full months of data, looping through 31 days, each day getting hit with about 5 select statements, that data is then filled into datawindow rows and columns using Setitem commands.
4 rows of calculations inside the datawindow are done for sub total sections with a grand total at bottom.

Not sure where the delay is but confident it's on the runtime only.
