Okay, I ticked the box for Run in Separate Memory Space and, among other
things, the [Mother] button in the [Person View] is still mostly hidden and
the mouse wheel is still unresponsive.
Exactly how was that supposed to enhance the performance? I see no change. I
am not being facetious. I am asking so that I can make an improvement, as
you suggest. Remember, I stated in my original post that I am not of the
"Tinkerer" persuasion. In any event, I don't remember a "hiccup" with TMG in
the past year so maybe I shouldn't be looking for one.
By the way, I was not "baiting." (or , at least, didn't mean to) I merely
voiced my observations and that included what I was exposed to at the links
I included. Please try not to be so defensive. Look around and see what you
are missing out in the great wide world. I am not the enemy. If the "Brain"
doesn't impress you, fine, say so. Just don't try to impress me with your
computer's abilities (which actually seems kinda puny). That's pretty

I tremble to point out to anyone possessed of such certainty that if
he right-clicks any program icon, then left-clicks Properties, he can
tick the box for Run in Separate Memory Space ... as I have done for
TMG, half a dozen data CDs packaged with the Folio Views front-end,
and all my 16-bit legacy programs such as Borland's Reflex database.
I've run TMG without a hiccup in Win2k for two years, two to four
hours per weekday, up to 18 hours per weekend day, 365 days a year. I
know it's sloppy, resource-wasting practice, but at the moment I also
have 11 icons in the System Tray, another 11 in the Quick Launch
area, six programs open (including TMG, browser and email), and am
downloading from the Web in the background via a dialup connection as
I write this.
Bob and the testers are working their buns off. My experience as a
4.0 beta tester was that testing went on around the clock for months.
It would be a nice gesture of civility if we could just leave them
alone until they're finished. In that respect, I shouldn't have taken
Ron's bait myself. :-(
