cpu consumption, process explorer, AppVerifier


New Member
I had a problem with an install of Eraser. it regularly loads the machine, between 20-40% of CPU every ~5 sec.

I check with sysinternals Process Explorer and it is the following thread which loads cpu

library is mscorwks.dll 2.0.50727.3615 and microsoft update doesn't give new patch.
Eraser was 6.0.6 on winxp SP3 up to date.

I made a quick test also with AppVerifier (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 57063.aspx) but Eraser crashes directly after launching.

I update to 6.0.8 and for now, it seems the cpu consumption problem has disappeared, but AppVerifier tests (checked all) still makes Eraser crashes.
maybe a bug to open ?

Still, thanks for your work.
AppVerifier only works for Unmanaged applications. Eraser is written using .NET and thus they do not work together.
