If you are running applications like video or image editing and are running some heavy CPU load processes, you can speed things up dramaticly to get the job done quicker! Once the process has started, hit Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the Task Manager, click the processes tab, click the CPU column title to sort by CPU load, and you should see your heavy loaded applications process at the top. Right click on the process, and select Set Priority, and set the priority to AboveNormal to High. (Do not use Realtime it’s unstable) You should see a serious improvment in processing speed. While processing some of my videos, the rate of conversion jump to 3x-5x times faster. Sorry guys this tweak doesn’t seem to effect Datacad to much as far as I can tell.

If you want to always launch a program using high priority add the following to a shortcut.

Original Shortcut Target:

Launch with high priority:
START /HIGH “C:\Datacad\DCADWIN.exe”
