Ngen and .net framework 1.1 installation

P: n/a
Hi everyone,

I have observed that the ngen process appears in the list of processes
in
taskmgr while .net framework 1.1 gets installed. This process consumes
0-50%
of cpu and 0-20K of RAM.
I would like to know if this process can be a cause of slowing down
performance of a high speed application. The installer of this
application
examines whether .net framework is installed, if it is not installed it
first
installs .net 1.1 and then continues with its own installation.
It would be great if anyone knows about problems related to ngen during

installation of .net framework 1.1, say, under low memory conditions,
or for
particular OSs, or for particular hardware configuration
