This is what I'm seeing:
Seems like I can't download a WU or something. Not quite sure what's going on, but I know it doesn't look right.
I'm getting this every time
I start a -bigadv now within a couple of minutes. I'm allocating 5gb of ram, and people usually indicate that they use a little more than 4gb for -smp 8 folding.
On top of this, when I delete the virtual machine, unzip and reinstall a new clean version, it sometimes stops me telling me that a process is running as Machine ID 1, when I can't find such a process via Windows - why would the virtual machine think that another process is running if it's a clean (re-)install of the virtual machine that didn't have any ... wait a sec -
I think I have it automatically starting - will the VMware go to a new prompt even if it starts in the background? This could explain running out of memory if I'm trying to run two at once, but I dont think that's the case because my CPU isn't pinned when I restart after setting up my info via the web utility. Hm.
Maybe I'll try to run it again with the -configonly and try to set things up that way to see if it kicks off again. If it doesnt though, I'm pretty sure I wont be trying -bigadv anymore. Damn shame too because there are many points to be had...
