...  But we have  100s of scripts . It would really help if we can find a root 
cause why this 10 minutes versus 90 minutes.

According to the "Ockham's razor" principle, "the simplest explanation is usually the best one."

In this case:
- The scripts are the same
- Data are essentially the same
- GAWK (3.1.6) was initially the same
- Hardware is the same (assumed)
- The OS has changed.

So the most probable cause of the loss of speed is the configuration of the new server. Possible issues:

- Virtual memory size (partition or fixed file).
- Network drives vs. local disk drives.
- Disk cache.
- Other processes or daemons (services) competing for memory or disk.
- etc. etc.

If the awk scripts do not use gawk extensions, then it should be possible to run them with other Windows awks (mawk, "the one true awk", ...) and see if there is a difference in speed.

Just my 2c.
