I'm a recovering Windows programmer (15 years of C++, C#, SQL Server), but with the help of node.js and Erlang, I'm getting over it.

comment Tuning windows virtual memory/paging for a specific workload
CreateFile needs the FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING flag, but that imposes requirements on how the file is read. It may not work for you.

If it's not your binary, you might be able to do something by playing with job objects. I can't, given a couple of seconds searching, find anything obvious though.

comment Using Powershell, how do I eject an ISO image from a Hyper-V virtual machine?
I want to unmount an ISO file. What part of that is not clear? The documentation shows how to mount one, which I can already do.

A little more? I'm aware of Set-VMDisk. What's the magic incantation to get it to eject the ISO?

comment Relative performance of VMWare Player, Workstation, Server and ESX?
Definitely that much more performant? Will it solve my problem? Or will I waste time getting it installed and then find myself in the same situation?

I have, but that assumes that they'll be approved. Also, VMs are attractive in that you can just clone a dev image and spin up another one.
