I'm surprised, because the thread I found mentions delaying starting the service in W7. But the FAQ clears this up pretty well.

Cheers!

It's not possible to run a GPU when using protected application mode?

I have a Windows 7 box with a GeForce GT 9800 GPU. I was running BOINC with GPUGRID since May without problems.

Today, I uninstalled and reinstaled BOINC (latest version), and specified to run BOINC as a service. Since then, BOINC cannot find my GPU, and gives me the usual "no usable GPUs found" message in the activity log.

I tried updating my GPU drivers to the latest version (280.26), just in-case, but it didn't help.

What's going on?

4) Message boards : Documentation : Suitable for Endless Projects? (Message 27164)

Post:
Is BOINC suitable to be used for projects without end? While most of the projects have a start and an end, some require constant updating and maintenance.

I had an idea to use BOINC to write some search-engine crawling and indexing (as the core computation); assuming I have access to the network API, this project would never end, since the index needs to be constantly updated.
5) Message boards : API : BOINC and Ruby? (Message 27163)

Post:
Does BOINC have a Ruby API? In other words, if I make a BOINC app, can I write my core cruncher-code in Ruby?

If not, are there plans to support this anytime soon?
