I have a couple of problems and a question.

1) I added a few days ago Einstein@home and the GPUGrid projects (via grcpool) and GPUgrid didn't give me the option to set up an account/password (says have to do it thought Boinc manager), so thought, ok I will delete and re-add via Boinc, as had added the other projects via Boinc manager add project option and they are running ok, but the remove project option will not work on the two mentioned above, as are is grey/faded out. GPUGrid hasn't given me any work anyway, since added it, I guess maybe as I haven't set up an account? so was going to pick another project, if can't get an account set up, but can't delete GPUGrid. I did remove from the grcpool and update, but its not made a difference, any help gratefully accepted.

2)On einstein@home I have a message about old url, to remove project and add a web address. I am not sure how to do this, as again the option to remove is in grey/faded out and won't work. Einstein has given me work and got a little credit already.

Q) also how do I allocate resources to each project if wish to give one or more, a higher percent of the resources, rather than equal % for each?

thanks kindly in advance for any advise in helping me with sorting these problems

I only very recently found Boinc via something on TV mentioning seti@home, so did search and joined 24th December 2017. so I am very new to this, so plain english and step by step be very helpful until get used to everything.

Kindest regards
Crystal

When you add projects via an account manager, you have to remove them via that account manager.
If the account manager doesn't let you, complain at the makers of that account manager.

We do not make the GRCPool account manager, nor do we support it. As far as I can figure from the complaints we get about it, they've taken the concept of the account manager and removed parts of it so it works as they want. That it then breaks conventional rules of how the thing should do things, they don't seem to care about. Best ask at their site.
