WinAlign How-To

If you want to get the best performance out of Windows 98, you can align the program code for your largest and most frequently used applications. This will help them launch quickly, and cause less disruption of the disk cache.
Error messages
When Walign or WinAlign run, they create a log file named  WinAlign Results.txt  (note the imbedded space in the file name) in the Windows System directory. The files are very similar except that WinAlign uses numbers instead of codes to indicate the error messages.

As part of its processing, WMAlign copies the log file that WAlign creates into the file WMAlign.txt in the curreent directory, so the output from both programs is the same. Here is an example of output that you will find in these files:
