    compiler setting c++ so .exe runs at low priority

    hello,

    i m trying to have the compiled .exe program always run automatically at a low priority level (without going every time to the windows task manager).

    i m using msvc++ .net, and i was wondering how/where to set this priority option in the compiler.

    thanks!

    You have to do it via code.

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    SetPriorityClass( GetCurrentProcess(), IDLE_PRIORITY_CLASS );
