    Now I know there is a way to do it in Windows if you need 1 core only, but I want to know if there is a way to set a program before starting up to use 1 core from the very start instead of going to the process and trying to set the affinity to 1 core?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can use ImageCFG on the executable to permanently set how many cores to use for that program.

    Not exactly sure what OS you're using.... but if you're using Windows 7 (or maybe even Vista... don't remember).... you can do it in a SOOOOO much easier way than using some other crap software.

    open the task manager, right click the process you wish to limit, select "Set Affinity", voila.

    What X-Istance said...
    Btw hey man, long time no see!
    Back on topic:
    So beyond using an external program, there is no other way? geez. Windows 7: Customized the way you like it... except for specific things.

    Well thanks guys!

    Not really. The program American Zombie provided helped alot more and real quick. The problem then became one of the programs I wanted to use the idea for is that it doesn't know how to handle multi-core cpus so it just doesn't work the way it should regardless of how many cores is used on it.
