Been away for a while and things have gotten confused when attempting the app_info.xml and I need some help.

02/27/2014 07:46:49 | Milkyway@Home | Syntax error in app_info.xml, but XML Maker 2.2 states there is no syntax error

<app>

[edit] The app_config.xml file that I created seems to be working correctly, running 2 WU's each on 2 x GTX660SC @ 2 Gb each.

<app_config>
<app>

<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.5</cpu_usage>

What program are you using to 'make them'? Since you are using Windows use NOTEPAD ONLY to make the files as word processing progressing programs add hidden stuff that Boinc doesn't like.

The syntax error was caused by the missing tags <app_info> , </app_info>. As far as using XML Maker to create/edit my .XML files, it was suggested by several people at SETI a couple of years ago when I was having problems with syntax.

Currently I'm running milkyway_separation_1.02_windows_x86_64__opencl_nvidia.exe on my GPUs, what other types/files run on cuda/OpenCl?

I have never heard of it but if it works that works for me.
