Message 102199 - Posted: 16 Dec 2020, 15:08:27 UTC

Hi, I am running BOINC (Milkyway@home) on several machines, but whilst windows is accepting the GPU's and BOINC states they are there, it will not use all GPU's available and there is not, unlike older versions of BOINC a cc_config.xml file to edit to get this happen.

Can someone point me in the right direction so that i can use all the resources available in my machines...

Thanks

The cc_config.xml file gets created as soon as you change anything from the options menu. Without it everything runs on defaults. You can create one by making a small change in one of the options and if you don't want it, then change it back but the file will still be there.

I haven't used Windows this century but all cards not being recognised is often a driver issue and that would be my first port of call.

That is what used to happen, but it is not happening this time round, I have made changes and even manually created a cc_config.xml file, and still the system ignores multiple GPU's. I have all the machines with the latest NVidia and Intel drivers in...

Probably you don't have the OpenCL component of the drivers most projects need.

First thing I would do is check whether any OpenCL drivers are loaded in the OS. You can check the status with the clinfo program.

At the bottom of the readme are links for precompiled Windows binaries for 32 and 64 bit Windows.
