A few years ago I set up my Boinc account, taking great pleasure in looking at the cool graphs that acted as the screensaver. Now, after getting a new machine with Win 10, I see my score increasing and hear my fans working but no cool graps appear. When looking at Boinc manager the "show graphics" is greyed out and not accessible.
I've made sure windows has it as screensaver, too.

Am I missing some settings or has Boinc/ SETI changed?

It might be quicker to ask this question on the SETI@Home forums as this is just for the Boinc software

What I can tell you is that if you are using a graphics card (GPU) to process the work unit then there will be no graphics displayed, you will need to select a work unit being processed by the CPU.


Also there have been some reports that depending on the version of Windows 10 you are running the screensaver may not work.
