Folding error?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
well i had surgery on my shoulder Wednesday so i decided to fold with my main rig since i can't control a mouse or keyboard with my dominant hand far a few weeks... but when i try to run the SMP folding client i keep getting this error... anyone know what it means? i am on vista x64 with UAC disabled.

Did you run install.bat first? and enter your username for windows and your password for windows? you have to have a password set.

There are also a few specific settings that need to be addressed. Check the instructions on Stanford's site to make sure you attended to all of those.

To have a password but never have to enter it, do this:

Start > Run > control userpasswords2

Uncheck the checkbox.

SMP is measured in Minutes per Percent. Each Percent is considered a frame when people talk about frames and SMP.

To see your minutes per frame (Percent) click on the FAHmon menu item and then choose benchmarks. That will show you your frame times and ppd for each type of WU. Some WUs are faster or slower and more or less ppd, so it is hard to say what is realy fast, or realy slow.

1678 is a good average ppd for smp WUs. That means you will finish a WU about every 24 hours give or take. That is a good solid speed for cranking out good numbers over time, especially at stock. Of course OCing a bit will improve your times.
