Exclamation Running parallel on Windows

Hello fellow foamers,

I am running the brand new OF Windows edition. I must give due credit to OF community for bringing it to Windows. My problem at the moment is with the parallel processing. From what appears, no matter how many processors I allocated in mpirun, the Windows version OF does not use all that many cores.

I suspect it has to do with VM setting for allocating resources to docker and OF. If anybody has dealt with it, please let me know the best solution.

Thanks in advance!

figured it out. It wasn't a big deal, just change the resources allocated under VirtualBox. It works like a charm!
