    :confused:

    I installed the new clients: GPU and SMP clients (into 2 separate smp directories). GPU client works fine (3000ppd) but smp clients give me 200 ppd, 0% CPU usage and 300k MEM usage. They all have different machine IDs.

    Where is my installation wrong?

    thanks for your help.

    I had the same problem, here's a quote from aircool that should clear it up.
    Edit: Also don't forget to run the install.bat files found in the installation directories.

    Open the log, hit ctrl a, copy, then paste it in code tags. The code tags are located above your message box with the # symbol.

    It has become clear now, those are not SMP work units.

    Either check SMP flag is used and delete WU data and core or reinstall the client.

    ok, thanks.

    how do I check smp flag is used?

    I did a shortcut of both "Folding@home-Win32-x86.exe" and renamed to "Folding@home-Win32-x86 -smp.exe", then I start by double-clicking the shortcut. Am I correct here? I think I'm wrong here, I'll do a bit of search...

    to delete WU data and core, I delete content of folder "work"?

    if I go for reinstall, what's the best way to uninstall current ones?

    thanks

    UPDATE: found it: http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/console-userguide.html

    To so set an SMP flag you make a shortcut to the FAH executable. Now right click and go to properties and add '-smp' at the end of the target box.

    So its a bit like this: "C:\FAH\1\Folding@home-Win32-x86.exe -smp"

    To delete the current work unit, delete the 'work' folder and the core (ussualy 'FahCore_xx'.exe).

    And reinstallation, just delete the entire folding directory and then thats it.

    Were you trying to run two smp clients?

    Because Im seeing this error on the new ones when running two now.

    Its a possibility, but the new client is a bit iffy.

    What AV are you running?

    indeed, I was trying after installing 2 clients in 2 different folders...just tried to run only one (the problematic one): same error.

    AV?

    UPDATE:
    I re-installed everything...now, everything works: 2 smp clients and 1 GPU --> total of 5800ppd.
    THANKS for your help.



    Hi,
    After a night of folding,
    smp client #1 is at 156ppd with core= FahCore_a1,
    the second at 1450ppd with core=FahCore_81.

    In their logfiles, I can read "arguments: -smp".

    In processes, there are 8 FahCore_81, 4 FahCore_a1.

    Is that normal?

    Thanks
