I have a Ryzen 2700x it has 16 threads I was hoping someone could either create or tell me how to create a app_config.xml file with all the projects the support multi-threading using 4 threads each.

Please let me know if this is possible.

ALL of the <max_ncpus> lines should be removed. They do nothing since max_ncpus is not a valid tag for app_config.xml.

You can ignore the "Missing..." error message. It's normal and expected.

thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for, is there anything else I need to do to get multithreaded processes?

a proper app_config file should get you going, all I suggest is to play with different settings to see what works best on your machine. let me know if you have trouble or suggestions for that sheet.

This is a cool idea! Maybe depending on how many cores and sockets you have, it can auto fill and calculate the "optimal" threads?

I'd love to do that -- if someone could just cough up the formula. I think there are too many variables to get it right all of the time, but we can probably come up with something that gets you close enough for a good starting point. maybe based on # cores and possibly intel vs AMD and processor 'generation'?
