I'm getting computation errors here as well. The task "Exit Status" reads:

"-1073741515 (0xffffffffc0000135) Unknown error number"

I should note that I'm getting crash notices within Vista itself. I'm running Vista SP2, and computing with a Phenom 9850 and HD7770.

Thanks for the information gentleman. I have decided to keep the official software; I can't risk compromising the computation results. I'll hold out until SSE3 or SSE4a comes integrated in official releases, if ever it does.

I have one more question though. My GPU is computing de_seperation tasks. Are these tasks gpu-only, or can the CPU process these too?

I understand that there are many helpful guides on this website. I just want to know if there is a safe way to optimize Milkyway@home for SSE4 or SSE3, without affecting the quality of data received on the Milkyway@home end?

Hello,

I'm looking to optimize BOINC manager in a way that will improve processing performance, and not affect BOINC stability. My computer is equipped with a Phenom 9850BE processor clocked to 2.9Ghz, and has support for SSE1,2,3, and 4A. My video processor is an HD4850 that is working fine with BOINC at the moment. My BOINC client version is X64, 6.10.58.

What I would like to improve: Milkyway@home processes are running in *32 bit mode, and in SSE2. Is there a way that I could have these processes run in X64, and SSE4a or SSE3? The BOINC client itself is running fine as an X64 process.

Thanks again in advance! =)
