Is it known issue?
When I start boinc.exe from command line it runs only CPU tasks. All GPU tasks are marked as "missed GPU".
When I launch BOINC client via BOINC manager GUI - it detects available GPUs OK.

So, how to enable GPU processing in Windows w/o using GUI-based BOINC manager, only via command line?

<coproc_debug> would be nice.

On a hunch, do you start the client with "boinc" or "boinc.exe"?

Too late, I will have acess to that PC only few months later.
But perhaps it reproducable on another one.
Actually, on any with GPU.

It was boinc.exe.
directly from cmd prompt or via script.

EDIT: actually I don't understand the difference.
There is no any other executable named boinc but boinc.exe
