So, I would love, when trying out over 1000 photos in a synth, to be able to stop absolutely every single process and service that Photosynth does not need in order to run the synther so that every last drop of memory and CPU is available in combination with running the synther at Realtime priority.
Honestly, I have multiple computers and I can easily to browse the internet on another one while the one that's synthing is busy doing its number crunch. When I have a big group of photos to synth, ALL that I care about running is the synther. I don't care if the machine is nearly unresponsive during scene reconstruction or anything else. All that I care about at that point in time, is getting all my photos to synth together.
So my request is this: either a guide for how to shut down every last service and process that Photosynth doesn't depend on to function for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 or some tricky command to give the synther that does it for me
