I upgraded my computer to Windows XP and have not been able to find out how to get the ACCOUNT KEY in order to attach to SETI. I have been with both SETI projects since they began. Help will be appreciated.

Thanks. Bill

Thanks for the reply. I guess I overlooked this when looking too hard. Up and running now.

If you are creating a new computer, and are keeping the old computer, the fast way is to copy the account_*.xml files across, and restart BOINC on the new machine.

If you are not keeping the old computer, just copy the entire BOINC directory to the new computer.
