|To put a couple of fine points on this:|
On a lot of machines, the default in Task Manager, is to hide Windows System processes - many of which you may not be aware of - and many of which aren't really necessary and/or are eating up ridiculous amounts of CPU and RAM resources.
To get past this, and see processes for ALL open program windows: Check the Show Processes All Users Box (usually located towards the bottom left of the Task Manager UI.)
To Set Affinity for open program windows - you need to be on the Processes Tab.
To Set Affinity for a specific open program window - right click the row for that process - and select Set Affinity.
To see what that looks like in Task Manager, have a look at the following two screenshots --

If your Windows settings are such that Windows is hiding the Set Affinity option when you right click a process in Task Manager:
- You might try using the method described towards the bottom of the main post (above) where I describe creating a new desktop shortcut for a specific JCapper Module like the Data Window - and pasting a valid launch command, for example C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C start "" /affinity 01 "C:\JCapper\exe\VBTally2004.exe" into the Target box for the shortcut.
And from there, launch that process (for example the JCapper Data Window) by double clicking the desktop shortcut.)
- Alternately, you might try going into msconfig and checking "use original boot configuration" as posted by dsnyder24 on 04-04-2011 in a thread I found on a Microsoft Help Forum, here.
The link to the Set Affinity tutorial in my main post (above) is specific to older (Win7 and earlier) operating systems.
