Tuning the Working Set
Working Set Tuner : Former version of the Platform Win32 SDK included a tool named working set tuner. It is possible to create an instrumetalized version of your application, gather runtime data about called function, and then to produce an optimized link order. This optimized link order causes less page load when starting the application. In old version of StarOffice we achieved ~30% better startup performance. Unfortunately the use of the working set tuner failed with the use of exceptions in the office code.
The working set tuner has removed by Microsoft from the Platform SDK for years now. There is now a new project in "MSJ Bugslayer", "Smooth Working Set Tuner", which tries to succeed the WST. http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/1000/Bugslayer/Bugslayer1000.asp . Unfortunately this tools does not run with OpenOffice.org yet.
