I downloaded and installed BOINC SETI and it seems to run if I fire it off manually. But the screensaver displays don't seem to work. If I "Preview" it in Display Properties, a text message "App can't display graphics, BOINC suspended" crawls across the screen, along with a bouncing (B).
If I let the screensaver timeout on its own (i.e. set
wait to 1 minute and walk away from computer) it displays a box with a message to the effect: "Secure desktop not supported".
What am I doing wrong?
I'm on Win2k. Thanks!

BOINC can not handle a computer that needs a password to come out of screensaver mode. If your BONIC settings do not allow running when in use then the preview will not work properly.
testing BOINC since 2002/12/08
