The only solution is to adopt a Virtual Machine model, like CERN does. Its Scientific Linux programs can run on Windows, Mac OS X and other Linux distros systems using a a "wrapper" built by CERN around Virtual Box.

You could install Virtual Box on a Windows host and then build a Linux Virtual Machine. I do it currently.

CERN has launched a new project, CernVM_WebAPI, which runs on Virtual Box also outside of BOINC and is hoping to get more volunteers to crunch data coming from LHC but also other particle accelerators. Data processing is becoming a problem for high energy physics research and astronomy, so the physicists and astronomers welcome the volunteers donating time and processing power.

Fot the first time I am running a 64-bit Windows OS. But the climateprediction.net units start without problem, 4 of them at a time on my new PC with A10-6700 4 core CPU. Does Windows 8.1 have the compatibility libraries installed by default?

I am not a Windows lover, but it gets me a nice screensaver.

I never used an antivirus on my 2 Linux boxes. Now I am using a HP PC with 64-bit Widows 8/8.1 and I get messages from Norton saying that HP has put an antivirus on it and it exhorts me to activate it. But I am running 4 BOINC projects on it and I don't want that any antivirus can interfere with them. I shall take the risk.

I have 100% CPU usage on my newest CPU, AMD A10-6700 running 4 BOINC projects, two with Virtual Box, on Windows 8.1 but I get no warning messages.Only Einstein@home in its binary radio pulsar search uses very little CPU since it uses the graphics board, a HD 8670D by AMD/ATI.

I am running 7 BOINC projects on 32-bit Linux on 2 real machines and one Virtual Machine, including also Virtual Box. I don't have to install any compatibility library. If CPDN goes 64-bit I shall abandon it. I have also a 64-bit Solaris Virtual Machine on my 64-bit Opteron 1210 but no BOINC project is available on Solaris.

If it actually only had 100 hours to go, a little over 450 hours total might not be a bad estimate for his computer, which is averaging 12 sec/TS for the ANZ model.

But at 50%, and 366 hours, there has to be a problem.

Anyway I aborted it and am waiting for a new unit, while running SETI@home Astropulse and Test4Theory@home.

Probably in a loop. They don't last THAT long.


Should I abort it?

I have a hadam3p_anz unit at 50% after 366 hours on my SuSE Linux box.Oddly enough, estimated completion time is given as 107 hours only. How come?
