Borland Object Windowing Library-Based Programs Slow System

Article ID: 101093

Article Last Modified on 11/1/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 3.1



This article was previously published under Q101093

SYMPTOM

Your screen saver may pause or freeze. Other applications may run slowly. Performance Monitor will show CPU usage at 100%, even if the Object Windowing Library-based application is running in the background, idle.

CAUSE

Applications developed using Borland's Object Windowing Libraries slow down Windows NT because of the way they handle idle time. Their message loops are such that if no messages are available they execute IdleAction() which soaks up CPU cycles. The intention under Windows 3.1 was to provide a way to do things in the background.

RESOLUTION

There is no resolution at this time. Please contact Borland technical support for more information.
