Darn!
LHC keep coming back.
I will try now with uninstalling BOINC, delete every map and file and all information regarding boinc using regedit.exe before reinstalling BOINC.
If that does not work I will contact LHC@home and ask them to delete my account.

The only files you absolutely need to delete/edit are in the data folder:

account_lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch_sixtrack.xml (your LHC file file may be slightly different, depending on when and how you attached. But it will start 'account_' and be recognisable as an LHC file). Delete the file.

client_state.xml: remove the entire section starting

<project>
<master_url>http://lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch/sixtrack/</master_url>
(again, the name may vary slightly) down to the start of the next project. If you're not running ant tasks at the moment, the final line will probably be </app_version>.

Delete the entire 'lhcathomeclassic.cern.ch_sixtrack' subfolder in the projects folder.

And that's it. No project data is stored in the registry, and uninstalling the program leaves the data untouched (by design) - no point in wasting your time working along those lines.

You might want to wait until someone with knowledge of account manager files comes along, in case there's another file that might need attention.


Already tried that but it does not help.
Initially it seams to work but after 1 hour or so lhc pops up in the manager.
I have dethatched from lhc in BAM now, I hope that will do it.

EDIT: I have also deleted the lhc part from the client_state.xml file

Did you originally attach to LHC by using an account manager like BAM! ? If so, you'll have to remove it the same way.

That's the only reason I know for the 'remove' button being grayed out. You can also set 'No New Tasks' for LHC while you sort it out.


Thank you Richard.
I think that I attached the computer via the boinc manager\Tools\Add roject… but I am not absolutely sure.
On my other computers I seams to have deleted lhc successfully by uninstalling BOINC and then delete all files in the boinc map and deleted
all entries in Windows including BOINC by using regedit.exe, I think I will try the same method if this does not help.

How do I remove LHC@home from my BOINC manager?
I have trayed to uninstall BOINC and manually removed everything in the BOINC map before installing BOINC again
and it worked for a long time but now the LHC@home have started to reaper in my BOINC manager and the "Remove" button in the manager is grayed out so I cant use that one.

My OS is Windows10 Pro and I'm using boinc manger 7.10.2.

According to the Choosing BOINC projects page http://boinc.berkeley.edu/projects.php the World Community Grid is supporting AMD GPU platforms. That is as fare as I know no longer the case, non of the projects under World Community Grid are using the GPU.[/url]

The project 'Help Conquer Cancer' under 'World Community Grid' are now using a GPU application that are working just fine with High end ATI\AMD cards and some of the Nvidia cards. The speed seams to be 25-30 faster than the old CPU app.

Here are some numbers on running time on different cards...

The main strength of the high end ATI\AMD cards is their exelent Double-precision floating-point in hardware capability, to bad that the only projects that use that strength is Milkyway and a bunch of non-science projects.

Yes I'm runing POEM using an app-info file to make it increse the load to 80-90% on my single 6970 card, i7 box. I'm also have a dual 5870, Q6600 box but POEM does not work well with cards in crossfire. And regarding high end ATI\AMD cards and high end Nvidia cards the Nvidia cards seams to work much bether with POEM than the ATI\AMD cards. I hoping thet the HCC gpu application will be finish the beta test soon where it seams to work just well but most of the beta test seams to go on forewer.

Thank you Claggy & Angeless.

I shold have said 'science research project'.
The only 2 of intrest seams to be Einstein & GPUGrid and I think that GPUGrid ONLY works on NVIDIA cards and Einstein seams to have some problem with the ATI\AMD cards as reported un their forum.

EDIT: World Community Grid is in Beta test on some applications an have been fo a long time.

Just wondering. Is there ANY non-beta research project within the BOINC community in medicine, biology, physics or chemistry that can use AMD\ATI GPU cards?

A know a few beta projects but there seams to stay in beta forever.

Just wondering what causing this strange behavior?
http://se.boincstats.com/stats/boinc_user_graph.php?pr=bo&id=749

The daily credit seams to change from negative numbers to positive numbers day after day and there are others with the same strange behavior like this one

We are up and a portable A/C unit has been installed until the other is repaired.


Or until it fails again, according to the 'LabstaffDowntime' page...

"
HVAC provided a portable AC which I reinstalled so it could be run with the door closed. The MRC networking will be left on, and the remote access machines are on along with a few research machines as long as the portable unit can handle the load.

It seams as they did not informed and got a green light from the BOINC administration before they released this idea to the public.

If that is the case then it was the main error they did but we all make our mistakes, hopefully they learned something.

Regarding Milkyway, to a large degree it doesn't matter if downtimes are planned or not, the short queues mean you can't plan for an outage by stocking up in any manner, it just means that you need second (and third) projects configured and active.

The thing is, with MW, about the only way you can run it as a primary is to have the other GPU projects suspended. For me the reverse ends up being the case, the other projects get the GPU cycle time unless I manually intervene to push MW work units.



It looks like it is a Scheduled Downtime I'm glad they informed us ;)



I run Folding@home as a backup to Milkyway so in my case it DOES mater to be informed if the mikyway server will shut down so I can put Milkyway on stand by and start Folding before going to work.

And now it seams to be down again and Milkyway too

I think the last time Milkyway had a big outage that Travis said that RPI would over the summer shut down non key IT Functions/Server rooms would be shutdown any time daytime temps were expected to top 90F. They say they are not in full session so students are not harmed by facilities being offline. Supposedly RPI gives them something like 1/2 hour notice to shut things down and then they turn the AC and Power off to that room/ Facility. This is supposed to be a cost savings for the University.

Based on this information from Milkyway@home it seams that your card can't be used to run DP app's like Milkyway.
