Since I installed 7.0.25 BOINC has finished the GPU tasks that were there, but does not ask for new. It is even pausing Moo! while there is still a queue of WUs waiting to be processed.

I had to zero my debts to make it come back to normal, also be VERY careful and READ the cache settings. Many of us had to swap the settings to make it work from the Ver 6 settings.

I have zeroed my debts, a new WU has been downloaded and now just sits there doing nothing. I have TWO GPUs waiting to crunch it. 6.12.34 would assign both GPUs to the WU, crunching it together. So I wrote an app_info.xml, and now my GPUs are happily crunching on both Collatz and Moo! at the same time. Phew!

Would you care to share the app_info file? Did you try using a cc_config file instead?

I use both. It is an AMD Llano System I was having troubles with. The mobo, an ASUS F1A75 has no video output of its own, so you have to use a discrete video card. To take maximum profit out of the Llano system I bought a HD 6670. But I needed a cc_config.xml to let BOINC know that I wanted to work with both GPUs.

cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
</cc_config>

Under 6.12.34 Moo! crunched 1 WU using the combined HD 6690D2 (=HD 6670 + HD 6530D), under 7.0.25 it is crunching 2 WUs using both GPUs seperately.

Thank you for sharing! I have a dual 5870 gpu system that just will NOT crunch Moo and Poem at the same time. I have not tried the app-Info file yet and will later this week, I was trying the exclude thing in the cc_config file instead. It runs two Poem units just fine but will not split the work with Moo!!

Dirk,

How did you install Boinc? Are you running Windows? You can not run Boinc 7.0.25 as a protected application under WINDOWS according to the rules of Boinc.

Protected Application Execution (Service) Installation, GPU detection and Windows XP
Due to problems with up-to-date GPU drivers causing BOINC to crash or hang, it was decided that for all versions of Windows the GPU detection will no longer work when BOINC is installed as a service, or protected application execution. This may change in a future version, but only after the GPU manufacturers have adjusted their driver code. So even in Windows 2000 and XP you can now no longer install BOINC as a service yet still have it detect your GPU(s) and run work on it. This change is present from 6.12.38 onwards.

I did install 7.0.25 and the GPU process failed to work as a protected application.

Hi Bernt,

On my Llano system I am running Windows 8 64-bit Consumer preview.
I have installed BOINC as a protected application (there is no other way to install BOINC in Windows 8 without errors).
When the system starts:
    I stop the BOINC manager, because it reports not seeing a single GPU. (Note that when you have no GPU you are already in bussines now!)
    I also stop BOINC.exe.
    Then I re-start Boinc.exe and the Boinc manager manually.


This has to be repeated sometimes, but as soon as BOINC.exe reacts you're in bussines.
