This program will change the rating scores on Windows Experience Index.
More information here.
Doesn't work on my Vista x64
says it ISNT a valid win32 application or something along those lines
I really like this thing to work!! whats up anything I should know about this
Are you using 64-bit too?
You need to login to view this posts content.
It begs to ask, why?
If you have a low CPU, low end GFX card and your scores are faster than 5.9 what does it prove?
It not like it makes your system magically faster. Its like photoshoping your 3DMark score screenshots to make them look faster than they are.
Or am I missing a point here?
exactly...lol...its like what do they do...invite people over and have them take a look at their 'score'...take a snapshot of it and take it to school to show the rest of the 3rd graders what a 'hot machine' mom bought them...lol...I guess alot of people don't have a life until they log on to the internet to be somebody.
So the point is that this program is pointless and just edit it yourself.
Not pointless. Just for noobs who don't have a clue.
It was ment to ease the proces of editing the xml files, so you wont have to do it by hand.
And from what I have read, the program doesnt works as it should and I jumped to editing by hand.
Havent tryed it yet...
But the metod works fine and if you want to get back to normal just delete the xml files and do the assesment again.
Nevertheless it doesnt speeds up the system, it is only for show offs.
As many (Cythrawl, jroc, petar....) have said it is easy to edit the XML file that the numbers are read from, and they are essentially worthless, but Microsoft did have good intentions when they created the simplistic benchmarks.
Other than for rudimentary performance ratings & comparisons, the intent was to provide a simple method for users to know whether their PC had sufficient horsepower to run a particular Vista specific game or application without having to know or understand the technical details (CPU, GPU, Mem, etc.). Unfortunately, developers scorned the Experience Index and it has become useless.
As an example of what I am referring to have a look at a Vista included game such as Chess Titans to see where they were trying to go with EI. Example below;
I dont want to bee rood, but I think I've been misunderstood.
When I said that it is only for show offs, I actualy ment, once you change the ratings all you can do with it is show your frends how good your machine is...I've noticed the performance ratings & comparisons in the build in windows games..
Anyway nice info
Actually, I was agreeing with you
Actually, I was agreeing with you , and I read your comments to be exactly as you have explained them here. I just wanted to add some background for those that might be interested.
Keep up the good work.
OK no problem.
