the shortcuts i linked i made by using the Create Shortcut from the starting .EXE then changing the Start In the defualt locations.

the shortcuts from the installer version cant be changed.

Never got to trying it... I'm also having Modem issues and getting dumped a lot and Comcast will be out tommorow.

- advmethods you say... I've not use that at all.
What advantage or need is the "- advmethods" flag for and is it required for multi GPU setups?

The -advmethods flag is not required for multi-gpu setups. It allows the client to download new beta wu's (the 420 pointers). The only real advantage right now is that you get less 511 pt wu's.

After 4 days of wacked internet access and constat service drops, Comcast just left after installing all new cable to the pole.
So, hopefully, with quality service again, this DC/8800GT XP folding can get resolved.

or you could just set the -advmethods option to yes in config...

Now that I have dependable cable after 4 days of dropped service

I've set up one GPU console version to see if at least one card is folding.
My first WU is a 5902 (1680 PPD) and it takes about 6.5min/1% so that equates to about 4000PPD. Not all tht great with the 8800GT 512 currently running at default speeds. The GPU OCing will come later since I'm just testing ATM.

I'll try the second 8800GT 512 later
