There has got to be somesort of addition to the Command Line of any desktop shortcut to make it only execute on only 1 of my 2 cores. wow that was most definatly a run-on sentence, neway, back on topic.

I really need to kno how to at least make a program always start on 1 core or the other all the time for a few reasons. 1. I really like to to multi-task and I kno when i start a program generall waht core I want it to run on. 2. On my dad's X2 he has Microsoft combat flight sim 3 and it won't work right unless he (as soon as it executes) sets it to run on just one core in task manager. 3. is a combo of 1 and 2, some programs just run better on one core rather tahn haveingto choose whice one to execute on. Neway, these are jsut a few reasons off the top of my head I'd like to kno if i could set any given program to execute only on one core, all the time.

Thx,
Alexander

OBTW: i dunno if i can do this but the 1st person who gives me a definative working answer will get sum rep

After a program is open, go to task manager and right click the task (.exe file) and click Set Affinity, you should be able to figure it out from there.
