Windows 7 / Vista timer disparity

2 posts in this topic

I've got a script built to help automate a couple of tests that we do where I work. I have timers running during the whole thing that are supposed to pop-up a window and make noise when I need to know that one of my automated tests has failed (I have 6 test stations, I can't be everywhere at once). On my Windows 7 machines, it's running flawlessly, on my Windows Vista machines, it's missing the failure notice entirely and moving on to the next test case, which it shouldn't be doing. Further looking into it and putting some debug into my script, it's triggering 7-10 seconds AFTER the failure notice, instead of within 250ms. Any ideas on this?

The machines in question are running the 64 bit versions of their OS. I have tried compiling x86 and x64 and I get the same results. Any thoughts on this?
