A process of operating a computer system (

100

). The computer system (

100

) has a storage (HDD,

110

) holding an operating system (OS) and an application program (APP.exe), a first processor (

106

) having an instruction set, and a second processor (

1730

) having a different instruction set. The process includes steps of 1) running (

2424

) at least some of the operating system (OS) on the first processor (

106

) so that the first processor (

106

) sets up for at least part of the application program at run time at least one second processor object (VSP OBJECT

1

); and 2) concurrently running the second processor (

3310

) to access the second processor object (VSP OBJECT

1

) and thereby determine operations for the second processor (

1730

) to access second processor instructions for said part of the application program (APP.exe) and data to be processed according to said second processor instructions, and running (

2436

) the second processor (

1730

) to process the data according to said second processor instructions. Other processes, systems, devices and methods are also disclosed.
