    Maybe a bug?

      I read most of the system information including amount of memory from WMI, so if OpenSourceMark is reporting only 2GBs, then Windows believes it only has 2GB.

      Hi Van.

      I just tried out OpenSourceMark on a Win2k3 SE machine.  The Windows OS sees 16GBs of RAM, but OSMark only reports 2048MBs. 

      Also, when I try using Result Viewer, the system I just tested doesn't show up.  The only graph that shows up is the one for "Intel Intel Core 2 CPU  6600 @ 2.40GHz 2394MHz 1,170".  I was expecting to see my machine's results after running a single iteration of the full test and then clicking on the "view results" button.

      ...and the help button doesn't work.

      I'm assuming you know about these issues.  I just spent some of my time trying to use OSMark for a report.  I had to give up after realizing I can't spend my time trying to figure the application out.

      For future reference, are you planning to update OSMark?  I used your older version before and liked the product.

    Hi Julio,

    Wow, there are lots of comments to catch up with.  I didn't expect the activity, but am glad to see it.

    I have not tested OpenSourceMark much on 64-bit operating systems, so I assume these problems are specific to them.  I'll take a look.

    Thanks for the feedback,
