For riderunner - best speeds were achieved using an external exe most likely because threading isn't possible with vb hence slower speeds using a dll. The speeds were still not as good as the top 3 due to the inherent overhead of IPC.
For cf - using a jet database (Labeled obsolete by msft after 2003) has an obvious performance impact although not as bad as I would have expected.
sd - i don't even think thats worth mentioning. I'll leave it at - i don't plan on using wmp for my music library anymore.
Folder.jpg is technically a special file name. It is used by both the OS and media programs as a fallback for album art.Who said anything about it having to be a special file name in order for it to be used?
