Preset Affinity in W7: Is there a way to set in W7 or is there a free program?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'd like to be able to preset which cores some of my programs run on without having to go to the task manger [or Set Affinity] so that I don't need to tab out of started programs to change affinity.

Is there a way in Windows 7?

Is there any free program out for that?


Edit: I guess it would have to be compatable with hyperthreading [i7 quad]


...If not, note to Microsoft: Please add this to W8.

...oh, and add that full 7-10 band graphics equalizer I been begging for in all those surveys you've annoyed me with over the years as well.

WinAFC is what I use to set the affinity for folding, and it works quite well.

Edit: And it's free, so that's a bonus.

Rep+ to you.


It works for folding, but do you think it will it work for games, even through Steam and regardless of from where I start it? Also, I'm not against finding something else where I don't need to write command lines in a box, so I'll take other offerings. So if anyone knows of a more user dumb-ass friendly program... come and getcha Rep+.
