Issue Details

Does running LabVIEW programs with multiple threads have any effect on other applications?

Solution

Yes. Each thread is scheduled independently by the operating system, so applications with more threads will tend to get more CPU time. Therefore, other applications may appear to run more slowly when LabVIEW is running several VIs in different threads at the same time.
