I can do full power all time but I prefer not to, as this primary rig is on almost all time. How do I get the graphical folding to run on both cores (is it the same as the console: 2 diff folders)

and......

I work in IT and have access to quite a few customers computers, can someone talk me through stealthily installing the clinet software and having it run silent so the users don't even know it's running? An example is a language school with about 15 Celeron 1Ghz's... If I can get them folding for the cure and Overclock.net 37726 we all win! The main issue is having it transparent to the users... if I can do it well and not have it popping up asking for internet access or permission to do anything - I could even install it on pc's bought in for repair and new builds.

Surely even if I run 'em at limited cpu% every WU completed counts????

I'm sure this has been covered elsewhere, but I'm starting to see double from all the reading I've done tonight about folding.

ya, you're not allowed to run F@H without the owner's permission. it's illegal.

Glad your on board

Well, for the school/s I'll get permission.. and I'm sure when I explain to our better customers what the project is about everything will be good.

Thanks for the advice guys: and I'm guessing the answers for my questions were for Elite folders only so I'lll just back off for a while and get my first WU completed. (Sueing people:? I've never met anyone who has either sued or been sued). Gotta love the free world!

No hurry Eh?

Feel free to ask any questions you have; answering them is the least we can do for someone with an Amiga avatar (I still have two).

You do definitely need permission to run this on other peoples' systems, but as long as you get it, you're good to go. If you want to install it to run stealthily once you get permission, just run the console version and select it to run as a service. It will only show up under the processes tab of the task manager, so users will not notice it running.

You cannot get the graphical client to run on two cores. Some people have had success with running one graphical and one console version on a dual core system, but Stanford recommends two console versions.

And yes, every WU does help, so any level of contribution is appreciated.

Now that's the stuff, bugger about the GUI, I'd prefer to run 2 at 50% than 1 on at 100% but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Legal: Understood will seek owners permission first... I'm optimistic but I get let down often so no promises.

Console version? so when I run it i get the option to run it as a service? Hopefully if comes with a helpfile so I can work my way through maximum load & priority.

Just for an experiment I was running 50% on one core was getting 4:15/frame @ 48-50°c, gave one core 100% and now eta 1:55/frame @ 60°c

When you first run the console version (and anytime you run it with the -config flag), it will ask you if you want to run it as a service. Just say yes, and you're all set.

Well It's all coming together! Thanks for your help Taeric! Go the Amiga!! That screenie was taken from my ORIGINAL A500 roms, Going to do the same with my 2.4 roms and animate it next time I get really bored!

Just installed the service on my telly to check how it runs (only a pIII 600). Stupidly easy to set up thanks. Only one Q about the machine ID - is that per computer for multiple processors or for multiple processors under one name?

Using FahMon to monitor is cool, and this proggy from Taeric's linkies is exactly what I was wanting Administrative Install - Folding at Work
