For anyone who is using the SMP client, I have a question.

How can I run it easily under Vista? I don't want to have to re-initialize the sucker EVERY time I re-start and I don't want the console window just sitting there, staring at me.

Will there be a big gain if I run this v/s a few individual folding clients per core?

:suprised:

Make sure to follow the instructions on installation, and keep your secondary login service running so it can start with your credentials.

Steevo, I had it running last night when I was setting up my new system, but it is very inconvenient.

Since it is a new build, I have to reboot after driver installs and what not and it is a pain when I have to restart the whole process for the SMP client.

What is the PPD advantage and so forth of the SMP v/s running 2/3 or 4 individual items?

Is it worth it? The annoyances?

:D

Thanks

yes.. very worth it

the SMP units are typically returning points in the 1700+ range per unit. My dual core box is returning them every other day or so.

Fitz, are you running an XP or Vista box?

This is on XP, but I've gotten it working on Vista as well.. but my laptop running Vista isn't on all the time so I would rarely finish SMP WU's on time so I switched this back to the normal cores.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
