Sorry, no idea what "wien2k" is. Do you mean WIN2K, as in Windows 2000??

I aslo thought they meant wins2k, but whatever this program is it is still on market. I think it's programming.

A quick search showed me that WIEN2K is a package that the majority of us probably would not use. I would suggest contacting their mailing list to answer this question. Their user community would have a better handle on the answer or answers to your question.

Good find...thanks.

Seems that the program is a pay-for program. OP, have you paid your fee, and have you contacted them for support on the program you purchased?

Again, you should really ask the developers/user community about this. Since this is quite a highly specialised piece of software, most people here probably won't know the answer.

I'm guessing, though, that if it's parallelised (with MPI), then I don't see why you wouldn't be able to use all 4 cores.

Also, you could do with putting some more punctuation in your posts. I've added some above, to make it more readable (in bold).
