Hello all, I've just noticed the CUDA application has been released. Just tomorrow I will be sitting in front of a computer with CUDA-enabled graphic card, but there is the problem, the computer doesn't have an internet connection yet and I don't own any of these CUDA graphic cards. So I would like to ask you to send me some links where this app and files like dlls etc. would be available for download, i would like to test the GPU crunching power with Seti@home on my own. I would really need to get those files till 11.00 am GMT +1 time. Thank you.

Unless someone sends you his whole BOINC + BOINC Data directory, this will not work anyway. Tasks are still registered to the machine that downloads them, you can't just pass them around to anyone, just as with normal BOINC.

You'll just have to be patient until you get internet before you can download the application, through BOINC. Perhaps that by that time some of the problems that are abundant now are solved.

Also, if you don't own the cards, make sure you get permission to run BOINC on those machines first. If the owner does not want BOINC on their system, then you are not allowed to install BOINC on them.

I know that, I've found a way, how to process a work unit outside the boinc(copy out the wu with app, rename, process, rename back, then put it back to appropriate places), so there is no problem with this for me... and OzzFan, I know the agreement has to be given for running boinc and seti, the owner of the computer agrees with my testing.
