Tools

Please don't be surprised, that the downloads of these systems tools are offered on a german healers site.

I share this web space with my wife ("the  healer"). I only want to provide some tools, I created in the past, which could be useful for other users.
 

Access 97 Tame Patch

This patch reduces the problems, coming along with the behaviour of Access97, described in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q160819. Microsoft Access 97 polls its message queue for activity for about the first 30 seconds of idle time. During this time, the application uses 100 percent of CPU resources. Although Microsoft Access only uses CPU resources that are idle, it becomes a problem concerning energy consumption (especially with notebooks) and CPU cooling.

The Acc97.Tame patch reduces the CPU usage of Access 97 dramatically. This benefit comes along with only a little loss of performance in most situations. 

For more infomation see the readme file, that is contained in the downloaded ZIP file.

Limit CPU Utilization 1.53

LCU limits the CPU utilization of any application.
 

This tool was originally developed to address the problems, coming along with the behaviour of Microsoft Access 97, described in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q160819.
Microsoft Access 97 polls its message queues for activity for about the first 30 seconds of idle time. During this time, the application uses 100 percent of CPU resources. Although Microsoft Access only uses CPU resources that are idle, it becomes a problem concerning energy consumption (especially with notebooks) and CPU cooling.

LCU discontinues all processes periodically, which are instances of a given image file.
By adjusting the "DownTime" the CPU utilization can be reduced by about 50%-90% without noticeable loss of performance. When LCU is active, it scans the system periodically for new processes, which have to be treated. So, LCU recognizes new started or terminated processes at runtime.
Although LCU was originally developed for the use with Microsoft Access 97, it can be used to reduce the CPU utilization of any application. Even older Win16 applications can be tamed with LCU. If you want to tame a Win16 application (e.g. Microsoft Access 2.0) you have to enter "ntvdm.exe" as ImageFileName. Here is a short list with applications for which LCU may be helpful.

- Microsoft Access 97 (Image File: msaccess.exe)
- Microsoft Access 95 (Image File: msaccess.exe)
- Microsoft Access 2.0 (Image File: %Windir%\system32\ntvdm.exe)
- Virtual Box (Image File: VirtualBox.exe)
- Old DOS  and win16 applications (Image File: %Windir%\system32\ntvdm.exe)
