[Windows 7] Setting up the SMP client (v6.34) - Page 129  

post #1281 of 1425
I have followed the instructions but my dos window doesn't start minimised.

Quote:
START /min C:\\Users\\[Your User]\\Folding\\Folding@home-Win32-x86.exe -smp 4
On my shortcut for the program I have only -smp after it and not -smp 4. Could this be why and what is the difference?

On a side note, what is the best way to terminate a run in case of needing to shut down my computer?

-smp will make the client use all available cores on your computer, logical and physical. -smp 4 will make your computer use only four cores (assuming you have that many available).

The best way to terminate the program is just to close the window that the client is running in. That will terminate the program properly.

Make sure to set the checkpointing frequency or whatever it's called to the least possible.

That only applies if the client is shutdown improperly (such as terminating the process, or losing power). Terminating it by closing it creates a checkpoint immediately before shutting down the core.

I'm still not having any luck getting the smp to start minimised. When I try to run the batch file through dos, it says that it is not a recognised command?

Can you limit the usage of the GPU client as it is lagging my computer loads plus it has dropped the PPD of my CPU too.

Only 484 points for first WU, isnt that really low?!

Hi, Ive been folding smp for a few months now on an i7 2600k, but because of my living situation was not able to have my computer on on weekends, and therefore couldnt really fold bigadv and meet deadlines. But now I can fold 24/7, and am trying to fold bigadv. I have tried a few times (delete everything and reinstall it) and it still just wants to fold smp. I have -smp -bigadv entered in the command line thing and everything, but it just doesnt want to fold bigadv WUs

I've folded a couple of bigadv WUs before (a few months ago) it just doesnt want to work right now. Any help would be appreciated, thnx

Are you just getting normal SMP WUs?
