    File mgr shows it installed in the regular "program files" directory, not the "Program files X86" directory.

    I have it installed on a separate disk, but that shouldn't make a difference should it?

    OK, I see what your'e talking about now. Good Catch!! I see the same thing on mine. I didn't have the "task image" column stretched out far enough to see it before...



    I think this is because the WUs are actually 32 bit. I'll verify this with my teammates at XS and link the thread here.

    We have seen that running the 64 bit BOINC on 64 bit op system gives about a 10% production boost over running the 32 bit version. So there is an advantage to doing it even if the WUs are still 32 bit.

    EDIT: Link to my post on the XS team forum, here.

    Yup, the XS thread confirms that we are actually crunching 32 bit Work Units. The manager is running 64 bit mode. So everything is running normal.

    Good catch Wezz....

    I use my ATI to fold as there was no client for ATI with Bionic that I could find, but there is a bionic client that will use the nVidia cards.

    And welcome to the team!!!!!!

    Welcome to the team Warrior!! Your ATI card should be used to join our small folding team. Note that this is different from CRUNCHING WCG on your CPU. We have both teams working here, but they are two different things. We have a thread for folding issues and questions. I'm not much of an expert on ATI card setup for folding, but Archer seems to have it operating. I know ATI card folding can have some loading impacts on your CPU utilization. There are ways to make the CPU utilization low, thus optimizing your WCG AND you Stanford Folding efforts.

    We can also get the gurus to come by and help us out if you are seeing trouble doing it.

    Side note - I will place a 260-216 back on the TR folding team. I had pulled it to help on another effort I was working on.

    To everyone, see the contest thread I put up on in the contest section. There is a bright shiny $100 USD bill to be had toward the end of August!!!....

    Also, if English is an issue, let me know what your native language is, and we can arrange to provide information in your language too. This is a worldwide effort here. We don't want language to stop you from getting your machines running. I know people all over the world by crunching and folding. All the way from Hong Kong to Belgium, to the USA, and "down under".

    Regards,
    Bob

    Thanks Bob that 216 can help push us closer to the top 2% in the folding realm. I just wish my point count matched my WU count .

    Give it a couple of days and points will accumulate also you should find your name on the team section on WCG when it updates.
