BOINC v 6.6.20 reports:
"5/3/2009 1:24:07 PM No CUDA devices found"

Running Vista Ultimate 64bit on Intel Q6600 (Quadcore at 3GHz) with 8GB Ram and a MSI GFX260 (CUDA capable)

Latest drivers 182.x, Checkbox ticked "Use GPU while computer is in use"

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/hosts_user.php?userid=54251

Very odd. Please can someone shed some light on this issue?

Did you install BOINC as a Protected Mode/Service installation? If so, CUDA does not work with this type of configuration under Vista.

The log mentions Running as a deamon, and a deamon is similar to being a service, so it might be that it's "protected" that way. Any way to unprotect it?
