How should I set Speed settings in Windows for the best tester performance?

Increase PC speed

Go to Power Options form. One method is via the Control Panel:

Power Options Form via Control Panel

In the Power Options form, select Change plan settings item of the selected plan.

Power Options Change Plan Settings

In the Edit Plan Settings form, select the Change advanced power settings item:

Edit Plan Settings, Change advanced power settings

In the advanced power settings form, scroll down to the Processor power management section.

Advanced Power Settings Processor power management

If the PC has the ability to dynamically change clock speed, there will be a Minimum processor state and a Maximum processor state. If the PC does not have the ability to dynamically change clock speed, there may be only the System cooling policy, or may even lack the Processor power management group.

Set the Minimum processor state to 100 (typically is 5). Insure the Maximum processor state is 100.
Note: Do not leave Minimum processor state at 100 on a laptop. It will more quickly run the battery down.

Fixing the Error when Closing FTI Studio Production

(How to make a Shortcut to FTI Studio Production)

On closing FTI Studio Production, if you get this error message:

Could not close program error image

This means that you are not running the program in Administrator mode.

Sometimes when the FTI Studio software is installed, the installer fails to properly create the shortcut to run the program with the Administrator mode set.  The easiest way to fix this is to create a new shortcut yourself.  On the desktop, right click the mouse, click “New” and “Shortcut”.  This brings up the “Create Shortcut Wizard”.  For the location, browse to

C:\Program Files (x86)\Focused Test Inc\FTI Studio\FTIStudioProduction.exe.

(If you are using a 32 bit Windows, then the location will be

C:\Program Files\Focused Test Inc\FTI Studio\FTIStudioProduction.exe)

Set the name “FTIStudio Production”, and click finish.  This will create a generic shortcut that looks like

You now need to select this shortcut, and right click to be able to change the properties.  That will bring up the properties screen which should look like this:
