That would be great and I'll happily use that on my old and dirty windows. Cheesy

Sorry - am not going to grab a binary - as stated I have manually lowered the priority and found that it freezes much less (although Pieter is correct that it doesn't stop the freezing altogether which I guess is more the I/O side of things).

With CIYAM anyone can create 100% generated C++ web applications in literally minutes.

No tester - no patch, it's as easy as this Wink.

Sorry - am working 12+ hours per day on CIYAM Open (and there is pretty no-one testing my software apart from myself either unfortunately - testers are in short supply around here).

BTW: I'm not saying that a checkbox to lower CPU priority (or even a default) is a bad idea - I just don't think it will help preventing freezes.

When I switch the process to low priority I get *no* freezes at all so yes I *do* very much think that it is CPU.

windows 7 also has IO priorities for processes

can i help?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Interesting - I didn't know that (haven't used it).

If you meant testing Dia's patch then he gave a link - if you meant with CIYAM Open then PM me to discuss.
