Hi,

BOINC 5 can be installed on Windows Domain Controllers, but BOINC 6 cannot. Now that we are on version 6.4.x already, I wonder whether BOINC will ever run on Domain Controllers again. Will this be fixed anytime soon?

Rom said he would fix it eventually.

I think the problem is BOINC creates new user accounts, and creating them on a DC would get them created on your whole Windows network... But I don't really know about Windows networking :)
