Improve application speed with Dual Core
Posted on 2007-03-26
I develop a MFC application with Visual Studio 6.0. If is a very intensive program (lots of calculations) and uses onidle() to grab any spare system resources and run an analysis. This is fine, except that running other programs is sluggish.
We have been told that with a dual core machine, we could add "a line of code" which would mean our application could run in the background nicely while the user gets on with other stuff and less interference.
Is this correct, and if so, any tips on the one line of code that will help us?!
