If you have a legacy application and you can build a graphic application that can use the shmem of the legacy application you are done. The problem is that the legacy application may not provide such a shmem segment. The BOINC Graphics API is designed for BOINC applications and not legacy applications. You can try to to communicate with the wrapper but I don't know if the stock BOINC wrapper supports this.

To be really sure you should ask on the boinc_projects mailinglist.
