Re: [Help] Version 7 Doesn't Install Properly

Move the "Folding Power" slider from Light to Full.

Yes, that did it howieh See Profile! Thanks! I was just about to give up on this thing as I don't have the time to sit around playing with it.

With the slider set to "Full" you should also see your GT450 folding. Any setting below Full will pause folding your GPU, during other use.

NVidia GPUs also like to have a spare core as in (# of cores minus 1) configured, but it's not absolutely necessary -- just more efficient.

Yes, the GPU is running and running well. I couldn't run the GPU with the version 6 client as it made normal video almost unusable. So, I'll leave it as is unless I run into any problems. Thanks for the help everyone.

I'm not having a problem folding at full power, but I'm not seeing a "Folding Power" slider. Maybe because I'm still running an older version of the client or maybe because I'm not looking carefully or maybe I'm looking in the wrong place? Or because I don't have a GPU?

The newest version, 7.3.6, is the only one I'm familiar with (unless we go waaaay back). But it seems that the web access configuration with sliding bar began in version 7.

From the benchmarks I've seen v7 seems very efficient and runs the newer, faster cores: Core 4 (Gromacs) for CPU and Core 17 (OpenCL) for GPU. There is also Advanced and Expert configuration options for v7, using flags similar to older client versions.
I'm sure others here have figured out some quick start suggestions. I'm still trying to tweak the boxen and client options to give the best results.

I'm in the same boat as mr sean See Profile. I went right from the 6.34 console to 7.3.6.

I'm pretty sure it started in the current version. I didn't see it in 7.2.9.

The version explains it then. On this PC, I'm still using V. 7.1.52. Until recently I was using the MBP, which is on a bed tray table in my bedroom, which was where I had been spending most of my time until very recently.
