Can I improve SmartAssembly 6 with more processors?

Does SA6 take advantage of multiple cores? I am looking for a way to improve the obfuscation time in our build environment.

Currently we are locked into Windows XP sp3 for the build OS. I have the VM configured for 3.3 GB of RAM, and have sufficient HD space. The current configuration has only 1 CPU and 2 Cores, but I can increase this. I am wondering if it will help any. I cannot find any information that indicates that SA is written to take advantage of multiple processors.

Thanks.

    As far as I know, it's not specifically architectured to exploit mulitple threads for performance although it is multi-threaded. Each protection feature is applied serial so it would be hard to parellelise.

    Is it possible to have multiple instances running simultaneously then? I am guessing not since there may be interdependencies in the projects.

    I am just wondering as the obfuscation and installer build times make up the bulk of the entire build process.

    Generally no- each build needs exclusive access to the settings file.
