Great! With Cat 9.9 it's working now! :)
Thanks !

Ok, thanks... Do you have any idea why 0.20 is only giving errors and 0.19 f works fine on Windows 7 X64?

Will there also be a 64bit Windows CUDA application?

I see you are using BOINC 6.6.20...
Maybe try 6.5.0 or one of the later 6.4.x clients. 6.5.0 works pretty good for my with AQUA on the CPU and Milkyway on the GPU.

If I understood correctly it shouldn't work at all with 9.2, if you don't do the file modification. So you should get an error message instantaneously instead of a reboot.


That's right... ;-)
I also had some reboots with 0.19e and the 9.1 and 9.2 drivers. Catalyst 9.3 works fine for me, but of course you have to copy/rename the 3 files like stated in the readme for 9.3 too...

It should work if you download the app from here and place it in the milkyway directory.

*ROFL* +1...

Hey, every post has a [+] button.

(which nobody uses)

Well, have you tried it over here? It's either not working, or disabled... ;)

Yup, every new 6.x.x client does it...

I think the "extra" credits (I mean that part of the credits which some people consider as "too high") must be awarded for having to read all this whining and squabbling about credits.

1+ Cori!
Maybe those people should get a real live... ;)

I wonder if DA has been harassing the heck out of PS3Grid for giving out 6 1/2 times as much credit as seti? Better yet I wonder if the admins there even care!

Hehe, it's funny to see how everyone tries to compare "normal" projects that use the CPU for their calculations with PS3GRID/GPUGRID. I don't mean only your post now, but I have tried to explain it in a few other project fora too...

The Cell processor of the PS3 and especially a Nvidia GPU does a lot more work in the same time like a regular CPU, therefore people get more credits for their work done. PS3GRID/GPUGRID is using FLOPs counting - AFAIK the prefered way to give credits. They only give credits based on the work that is actually done.

6.3.14 was an older alpha version. 6.3.21 is the current BOINC alpha version...
Maybe try if things are better with the new version...

MilkyWay isn't the project with the highest credit rate per hour.
It is way beaten by PS3Grid, where you can make at least over 150 Credits/hour even with the slowest NVidia card!
But the users there are still very less. Consider when they get some thousand users in the future, it will blow up the stats sites and will beat SETI for sure some day. ;-)

Yea, but the only difference between PS3GRID/GPUGRID and Milkyway is that PS3GRID is using FLOPS counting. So you really get the credits for what is computed and not a fictional number of credits...
The CUDA code on GPUs is faster than a something computed on a CPU. That's the way things are... ;)

stream processing isn't yet ready for BOINC.

Ever heard about gpugrid? ;-)

boinc.at ein gemütliches Team mit charmanter Rechenleistung

Boinc.at würde 2005 gegründet, ist ein stetig wachsendes, aufstrebendes Team und derzeit auf Platz 2 in Österreich. Wir haben ein eigenes Teamforum mit angenehmer Atmosphäre, Team- und Mitgliederstatistiken, BOINC-FAQ und nette Cruncher die man bei gelegentlichen Forentreffen auch im richtigen Leben treffen kann!
Wenn Du noch immer ohne Team bist (oder Dein altes Team langweilig geworden ist ;) ), besuche uns doch einfach auf boinc.at, und tritt unseren Team bei den Projekten bei für die Du rechnest. Gemeinsam crunchen macht doch viel mehr Spaß! Bis bald bei boinc.at!

boinc.at a relaxed Team with charming computing power

Boinc.at was founded in 2005, it is a steadily growing, upcomming team and as of now on the 2nd place in Austria. We have a pleasing forum, team- and user statistics, BOINC-FAQ and nice crunchers which you can also meet in real life at occasional forum meetings!
If you still crunch without beeing in a team (or your old team got boring ;) ), meet us at boinc.at and join our team in the projects you are crunching. Crunching together in a team is much more fun! See you at boinc.at!
