Trying to Set Affinity

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Soooooo

I am trying to set the affinity for two instances of WoW (I know). Only problem is when it runs it has the same name (wow.exe). I even tried two separate folders of WoW and I can set them to the separate cores.

Anyone got an idea?

the exe will always be the same but in the task manager when you right click on them and set affinity then they'll show to run on diff cores. i always start one instance of the program then set it to the affinity i want then open the other. have to do that with orthos. if your just asking about changing the name, then im pretty sure theres no way. the exe name is kinda important for it to run.

There has to be a way I can have it set to a core automatically...

That's what I'm looking for.

He mentioned how Snerp (great cheapo WC guide btw)...open task manager, right click the application and select "Set Affinity..." Then choose Core 0 and uncheck Core 1, and then vice versa for the second instance.

maybe an application like this might work (http://www.activeplus.com/us/freeware/runfirst/) but it will probably see the two wow.exe the same and might not differentiate between the two location (although it might i haven't used it) few people like this one http://www.tomshardware.com/2004/05/...uck/index.html
and then theres this one thats just plain cool http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/

I've already tried the one on Tom's Hardware one and it didn't work. I'll give the other two a shot and let ya know.

ok, only way i can see any of those programs working is if you can set a specific .exe location to the .exe since the wow's are the same name. more than likely not though. that last one autoitscript might be able to but only cause you write scripts for it

You're right! I can't believe I overlooked that. I feel stupid

Now my problem is that the tom's hardware program doesn't work. After setting the affinity in the program, I bring up task manager to check the affinity and both CPUs are still checked. WoW doesn't show up in SMP Seesaw. Active Plus crashes and won't even open...and I don't even have a clue where to start with autoitscript.

Now that the names are changed there has to be something out there that works

I know I'm not the only person who doubleboxes wow...maybe I'm just being to damn nerdy rofl.
