jom.exe on multicore processor

  • Hi all,

    Does "-j" switch work for jom.exe as for make ? (Qt 5.7 Qt Creator 4.1.0 )

    I have Linux development machine and in project configuration I set argument for make -j6 and I can see that computer is speeding up.

    My second development machine is Windows 10 (Qt 5.7 Qt Creator 4.1.0 fresh install), there is no difference in build time if I set or not -j parameter. On Windows I'm using msvc2015 32Bit and jom.exe but I'm pretty sure somewhere was written that -j parameter is supported by jom

    So how can I utilize multicore processor on Windows 10?

    Best Regards

    it's actually the purpose of jom to use all available cores.
    So you do not need to specify any parameter to do so, since it does it by default.

  • ahh...
    Thanks for reply.
