comment Setting Java Runtime setting for all users on a client PC
Thanks for the tip about JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS. I completely wasted the weekend trying to get Processing to use Unicode characters (despite its claims that it already does) and none of the 30+ things I tried worked… until this. Thank you!

comment Win2008Server R2 - no window running .bat file via task scheduler
I do NOT have them set as hidden. Do you remember what you meant by that statement? Unlike shortcuts, the Task Scheduler does not have any options to control the display of tasks when they are run. (If you meant the Hidden checkbox, that has nothing to do with the program, it controls whether the task is shown in the Task Scheduler or not.)

comment Task Scheduler runs as hidden, how to make it visible?
the scheduled Console Applications are running in hidden mode. Do you remember what you meant by that statement? Unlike shortcuts, the Task Scheduler does not have any options to control the display of tasks when they are run. (If you meant the Hidden checkbox, that has nothing to do with the program, it controls whether the task is shown in the Task Scheduler or not.)

comment Run a .bat file in a scheduled task without a window
Because start is not a program, it is a command. You need to specify cmd as the program to run and /c start /b <file> as the argument. However, this is still not going to work because it will still create a console window for cmd and flash a black window on screen.

comment How to start scheduled task in minimized cmd window?
It will still create a console window for the cmd process, so this will work if you don't mind a black window flash on screen, otherwise you need another solution. `:-`

comment Graphics cards in a 1U server?
This actually isn’t a shopping question, it is a simple and valid question. The problem is that it is probably an XY question. I’ve provided an answer to the general question, but ultimately, it is up to you to provide more information for a full solution for your specific situation.

comment Why is the response on localhost so slow?
@all, I have a question for everybody that posted solutions that involve adding or replacing text with 127.0.0.1: does it still work if you access 127.0.0.2, 127.1.2.3, and so on or does hard-coding 127.0.0.1 create an unnecessary restriction?
