Process Lasso Lite 2.50.1

Posted on Tuesday, February 05 2008 @ 21:59:50 CET by

Process Lasso is a unique new technology intended to automatically adjust the allocation of CPU cycles so that system responsiveness is improved in high-load situations. It does this by dynamically temporarily lowering the priorities of processes that are consuming too many CPU cycles, there-by giving other processes a chance to run if they are in need. This is useful for both single and multi-core processors. No longer will a single process be able to bring your system to a virtual stall.

In addition, Process Lasso offers capabilities such as default process priorities, default process CPU affinities, termination of disallowed processes, and logging of processes executed.

  • Addition.GUI: Position of window and child windows is now saved at exit and restored at re-launch.
  • Addition.GUI: Added 'View' menu item and 'Show Legend' option to toggle display of graph legend.
  • Optimization.GUI: Reduced main window procedure CPU cycles per message.
  • Change.GUI: Changed 'File' menu item back to 'Actions'.
  • Fix.GUI: Removed some incidental debug output left in final builds (minor).
  • Change.UpdateChecker: Cosmetic changes.
  • Installer.Fix: Remembers last installed path during an upgrade/reinstall.
  • Installer.Fix: Added code to run gdiplus.exe or gdiplus-installer.exe, if present in the CWD, to install gdiplus.dll. This is opposed to downloading gdiplus.
  • Installer.Addition: Added hotkey to invoke Process Lasso GUI (or show its window)- ALT|CTRL|SHIFT|F12. Can be edited, post-install, in properties of start menu shortcut.
  • Installer.Addition: Added back section to automatically show out-of-control config dialog. Section is off by default.
  • Installer.Change: Moved advanced menu items to a new subfolder of process lasso's start menu folder.
  • Installer.Change: Re-enabled advanced menu item section by default.
  • Installer.Fix: Now forcibly terminates running copies of processsupervisor.exe and processgovernor.exe even if they are running in other user sessions to avoid 'in-use' errors when trying to update.
  • Fix.Updater: Fix 'auto check' mode so it doesn't keep checking in an infinite loop when the update check dialog is opened.
  • Fix.Updater: Fixed 'never check' setting - it wasn't getting saved/restored correctly.
  • Fix.GUI.Updater: Fixed up updater invocation. Defaults to checking every three days. Turn 'automatically check' on and it'll just notify you if an update is available without bothering you with the dialog box otherwise.
