Hi all,

It's killing me that my new R9 390 won't crunch GPU work units. I'm told this app_info.xml needs to be created and saved somewhere?
I'd appreciate some help on doing this for a Win7 64 bit system.

Thank you

I can give it a try I suppose.
Following app_info.xml is just for MilkyWay Separation Modified Fit with GPU, 4 tasks simultaneously.

<app_info>
<app>
<name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</name>
<user_friendly_name>Milkyway@HomeSeparation(ModifiedFit)</user_friendly_name>
</app>

<file_info>
<name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_windows_x86_64__opencl_ati_101.exe</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>

<app_version>
<app_name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit</app_name>
<version_num>136</version_num>
<platform>windows_x86_64</platform>
<avg_ncpus>0.1</avg_ncpus>
<max_ncpus>0.1</max_ncpus>
<flops>2e11</flops>
<plan_class>opencl_amd_ati</plan_class>
<coproc>
<type>ATI</type>
<count>0.25</count>
</coproc>
<dont_throttle/>

<file_ref>
<file_name>milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_windows_x86_64__opencl_ati_101.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>
</app_info>

You need 3 files with that:
- milkyway_separation__modified_fit_1.36_windows_x86_64__opencl_ati_101.exe

That you should be able to find here:
http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/download/ (scroll down...)

- parameters-15-3s-sim-fast-unconstrained.txt
- stars-15-sim-1Aug1.txt

That should be in the BOINC data folder already (\projects\milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway\)

You can find a complete app_info.xml for MW@H (to play around) here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pdract04jyf697e/app_info.xml?dl=0

Good luck, app_info stuff can be nasty.

Hmm firstly thank you for taking the time to reply! It's greatly appreciated.
Secondly...yes all that is rather scary for a novice like me. VERY unnerving.

hi delete "<plan_class> opencl_amd_ati </ plan_class>" then it should work.

You're talkng about, and your BOINC client has found, a file called app_config.xml

But the file contents you have posted are appropriate (more-or-less) for a file called - as the opening tag suggests - app_info.xml

Always refer to the documentation:

Application configuration
Anonymous platform

I think you want the second of those.

Your're quite right, I'm not used to these config files and it happens that I'm mixing them often. Renamed in app_info.xml, will see, server seems having problems right now.
Thanks for pointing that :)

For linux+ati recent model, thanks to cyrusNGC_224@P3D for his app_info.xml from here, which just does exactly what I needed; just changed version of latest apps and voila :)

Hey Chooka,

I figured it out for Windows 10 x86_64, but the instructions should be the same for Windows 7. The easy way is to:

    1. Download this zip file.
    2. Shutdown the BOINC client
    3. Extract the contents of the ZIP to C:/ProgramData/BOINC/projects/milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway.
    4. Start BOINC again.



If you do not trust the ZIP file, extract app_info.xml from it, and download the executables yourself. Happy crunching :D.[/quote]
