    Default Multi-core computers & Alpha5 version 10

    Is there anything built into version 10 that takes advantage of a multi-core processor for speed improvements?

    Thanks.

    Dewayne,

    I haven't used them, but these are in the help file:

    Performance Functions

    Alpha Five provides the following functions that will be useful to the Alpha Five application developer.


    CPUCount()
    Returns the number of available CPUs in the computer.

    PrimaryProcessor()
    Returns the index of the primary processor.

    SelectBestProcessor()
    Assigns the process affinity to the highest CPU index (0, 1, ...) with the lowest number of occurrences of alpha5.exe, a5desktopserver.exe, and a5applicationserver.exe.

    SetPrimaryProcessor()
    Sets the processor that will run Alpha Five.

    Hope this is helpful info.

    Scott
