Hello Guys,
I try to run my own project and application. Now I have a question. My project is a interior project, I know the computers which will serve as boinc clients to attach to my project and server, and i also know everything about the application i need to run.

This means I could install the application in every client computer before launch the boinc project. I think the only thing that boinc-clients need to download is input files.

What should i set up my project application under this circumstance.
Is there anyone who can give me some advice?

I would appreciate for your help

Usually the project application is downloaded to the client just one time, automatically, until a new version is defined. Then from the client side project folder each task slot copies the application from the project folder with the task data, the piece that needs computing as assigned by the project server. Some projects use symbolic linking to cut down on the copying of the application part, which in instances can save i/o into many megabytes per job slot/task running.
