MouseClickDrag speed changes from 1 to 2-core CPU

2 posts in this topic

I noticed that when I run a script that has a series of MouseClickDrag calls with the speed at 100, the time it takes to do the dragging on a Pentium D with only 1 core booted (/numprocs=1 in boot.ini) is 36s, and with 2 cores booted, it is 18s. I need the script to behave consistently. Can someone look into the implementation of MouseMove/MouseClickDrag to see if the implementation somehow makes the speed dependent on the number of CPUs?

Thanks,

I have narrowed this down a bit...

On a dual-core machine, the mouse move speed only increases when certain apps are running (I can't share the app or the app name). Just having the app running, without opening any files or anything, and minimized, causes the mouse move speed to increase. If I close the app, and re-test the move speed, it goes back to normal.

Any ideas on what the app could be doing that might affect the mouse move speed from the Auto-It script?

My test script is attached.

Thanks,
