Process Lasso 2.82

Posted on Thursday, May 01 2008 @ 12:52:47 CEST 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.

  • Addition.Governor: Can now run as a system service again [experimental feature, may not work correctly].
  • Addition.GovernorInstaller: New (really restored) utility to install and uninstall Process Governor as a system service running under the system context or as a specific user. This utility also supports standard process installation.
  • Addition.GUI: Added menu option to invoke InstallProcessGovernor.exe, which will take care of installation of the governor as a system service or normal application. It also facilitates uninstallation.
  • Addition.GUI: Added menu option to set Process Lasso GUI to start via either HKCU or HKLM (of course, sorta was already there via the general process management).
  • Addition.Installer: Added Bitsum Technologies MakeService and dependencies to help facilitate running Process Governor as a service.
  • Addition.Installer: Added version info block so publisher and product isn't 'Unknown' for Windows Vista UAC prompt on the installer.
  • Addition.Installer: Added manifests for asInvoker and HighestAvailable permissions.
  • Addition.StartMenu: Added UAC folder to adjust the UAC permission level (by copying new manifests into position).
  • Change.GUI: Brightened colors on traffic light icon.
  • Change.GUI: Better UAC support. Now shows and controls processes from all users if the user is an administrative one.
  • Change.GUI: Added save/restore of the last sorted column and sort direction.
  • Change.GUI: New graph legend that also indicates what the highlighted portions mean.
  • Change.GUI: Increased accuracy of Process Restraint highlighted portino of graph.
  • Change.GUI: Menu arrangment changes.
  • Change.GUI: Refresh (F5) now refreshes lower listview.
  • Change.GUI: Faster application menu display (removed configuration load prior to menu display).
  • Change.GUI: Renamed to ProcessLasso.exe (was ProcessSupervisor.exe).
  • Change.GUI: Process restraint settings default button now applies to all options on that dialog. Button moved to reflect new context.
  • Change.GUI: Process restraint settings defaults changed (services and processes of non-normal priority classes excluded).
  • Change.Core: Some optimizations to reduce COM related registry accesses.
  • Change.Core: Change to graceful close mechanism.
  • Change.Localization: Added many more strings to the localizable string table in pl_rsrc_.
  • Change.All: General cleanup all over.
  • Change.Installer: Uninstaller now askes if you want to keep your configuration (INI) and log files.
  • Change.Installer: Rewrote EULA (no big changes, its just a disclaimer really).
  • Change.Installer: Removed unncessary and mis-named manifest (manifests are embedded in all UI executables now).
  • Change.Installer: General cleanup and restructuring.
  • Fix.GUI: Fixed theoretical possible crash when terminate or gracefully closing an application in certain situations.
  • Fix.GUI: Occaisional crash at exit when cloed through systray fixed.
  • Fix.Core: Fixed theoretical possible crashes on other process termination (graceful or forced).
