Aquamark3 HWBOT Edition wrapper available for download!

Recommended Posts

Now that I've installed this, I can't change my affinity settings in windows now. :( I could before with the first wrapper.

EDIT: Because I can't update the affinity setting I lose almost 80K on the bench... It gives me an access denied when I try. was this on purpose?

 

Are you on win7 ? You can change affinity in XP, iirc.

Win7-64bit SP1. it was fine before installing the all-in-one. then after I couldn't. I was getting an "Access is denied" error when I tried. I did a system restore to before the install and it's OK now.

 

I have only tried it on 1 system. my bench setup isn't prepped for any runs.

Icke&Er of my team reported another bug. He first used his nickname "Icke&Er" as windows username but then he was not able to run the wrapper. Using a different name like "bencher" it worked and the wrapper would run. Could the problem be the "&"?

I checked infinity and it seems that the wrapper is automatically enabeling all cores in xp32. I used to have to enable all core myself but it was already done. Weird though my GTX580 is running slow as snails. All other cards run fine.

 

Edit: I tried it on Vista 32 and i had to enable all cores manually and the GTX580 ran 100% better. So i am guessing that even though Task Manager is showing all cores enabled in WinXP32 they are not. How do i get all cores enabled now? loool THis is weird.

Is this utility now required for an official score? Or can I still use the old way till some date?

 

@Duke, for 500 series cards in xp you need a tweak in nvinspector. It involves dx9 compatability ;)

.net 4.0 makes my system (XP 32) CRAWL on startup.... ~ 30 seconds of thinking before a program will finish opening

 

Will try .net 3.5 and hope it's snappier.

regarding slow bootup - I think it's due to some framework scheduler sitting in the background, you can disable it if you have the patience to google

Have been trying to get this to work for the last day and no luck probably just me lol. Installs fine click on startbenchmark - benchmark runs gives me a score - what exactly do i do next i've tried alt tabbing out back to desktop but when i do the wrapper is greyed out and does not allow me to take a screenshot. down the bottom of the wrapper it says running benchmark even when it has finished as has given me a score.

 

Ok worked it out you have to close the aquamark benchmark down then the score appears in the wrapper. I hope a readme is included in the download but other than that looks good

Found the solution for this problem :)

 

When .NET redistributable is installed, it compiles the high priority assemblies in 5 to 10 minutes and then waits until your computer is idle to process the low priority assemblies. The following method forces all of the remaining items to be compiled with a command called NGEN.exe. Follow these steps:

 

1) Run cmd.exe from Start > Run

 

2) Type cd\

 

3) Type cd Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727

 

4) Type NGEN executequeueditems and press Enter

 

5) It will take about 1-10minutes depending upon system speed. After the process is complete, the following prompt will appear in the command prompt

 

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727>

 

6) Type exit to close the command prompt.

After performing these steps, your computer will boot up at usual speed.
