Vista graphic resource monitor

Specs: Windows VISTA

I have a Problem with one of my applications on VISTA. The vista runs smoothly with the graphics card it has but the application does not run.
So,I want to know if I can modify the usage of this graphic memory available from graphic Card to reduce the stress caused by other applications?

Can I also choose a specific amount of memory to each application to smoothly run and also give more resourses to the interested application I like?
For example I want to choose a less memory for video application like windows media player and choose a high resource value for a game I want.

Thanks and best regards.

You can allocate Priority resources ( Real Time, High, AboveNormal, etc. ) to an application but you cannot allocate memory resources to an application, unless you are a program developer.

How can I set this Priority resources ( Real Time, High, AboveNormal, etc. ) to an application in VISTA? Which of the VISTA versions allow this to do? Or is it with the graphics driver which supports this feature?

Just start TaskManager ( Right-click Taskbar and click Start Task Manager ). Click Processes tab and find the process (.exe file) whose priority you want to change. Right-click that process and click Set Priority. There you will find Real Time, High, etc.. Do not choose "real time" as it may cause other processes to come to a halt and fail.

What program are you having trouble with? There might be something specific to that program that you can configure. If a program won't run at all, changing its process priority isn't likely to do much.

If the application is not compatible with Vista, you may have difficulty running it smoothly.

In this case, running the application in compatibility mode may help.

If raising the priority did not help the application run smoothly, then try "compatibility mode" to run the application. You can choose Windows XP SP2 mode.

I had already tried to do it using all the compatability modes. seems notting is working.

My application is basically a video editing program which runs smoothly on xp. But in vista the Aero mode is transfered to windows vista basis automatically.

The problem in more detail is when I start to use this program on vista it opens but when I load a video and click play notting is coming on the screen. I had asked the vendor about this and he asked me to reduce the resources for other programs and aloow this application more resources.

The other thing is my friends PC which has an inter GMA x4500HD grafik card is runing the program well but on my PC with the same configuration does not open anything.

So does not understand how to do the resources sharing between applications and was also unable to use the program. Any more ideas would definitely be helpful and I would be thankful to one and all who can make it possible.

Do you have Vista SP1 and SP2 and/or all other updates installed ?

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program ?

I have vista SP1 and also hope that all the updates are done normally when it asks me. I had tried to uninstall and install it several times but notting seems changed well after doing that.
