StartX v1.06

November 12, 2008

Just to let everyone know that v1.06 of StartX has been released. Updates for this version include:

  • Code now compiles cleanly using Code Analysis (/analyze)
  • Updated code to compile correctly using _ATL_CSTRING_EXPLICIT_CONSTRUCTORS define
  • The code has now been updated to support VC 2005 or later only.
  • StartX can now set the process affinity mask via the new AFFINITY command line option. The value you provide here is the value passed to SetProcessAffinityMask. So for example if you wanted to limit the new process to only run on the 2nd and 3rd CPU only of a computer then you would use the command line "/AFFINITY6". i.e. 0x2 & 0x4. Probably the most common value you would use for this would be "/AFFINITY1" which would limit the process to run on the first CPU only. Please note that the value you provide on the command line should be decimal and not hexadecimal. Thanks to "Cobus" for prompting this update.
