i dont seem to have any luck in using a logging program so i can use SetiMap View, i have used Seti@home-log9X and BoincLogX and i cant seem to get either to work...i just dont know have.

Could some please give me a step by step on what would be the best programs to use and how to set them up.

Cheers

I use BoincLogX 1.52 & SetiMapView 6.54 on Vista32 for over an year.

You have to point it to BOINC Data directory.
Look in the Messages tab in BOINC Manager to see where is yours:

17.08.2009 08:37:45 Starting BOINC client version 6.6.36 for windows_intelx86
17.08.2009 08:37:45 log flags: task, file_xfer, sched_ops
17.08.2009 08:37:46 Libraries: libcurl/7.19.4 OpenSSL/0.9.8j zlib/1.2.3
17.08.2009 08:37:46 Data directory: H:\BOINC-Data


It can be hidden, so open any folder in Windows
(e.g. My Computer) and from the Tools menu choose Folder Options ...
In View tab select "* Show hidden files and folders".


Install and run BoincLogX.
Right click BoincLogX icon in System Tray and choose "Setup BoincLogX"
Click Add
Navigate to Your BOINC Data folder (Last click is On it - Not inside it)
Click OK

Now in Setup window you will see something like this:
[v] C:\..................\BOINC Data

(in my case it is H:\BOINC-Data - I chose this folder manually during install of BOINC Manager)

Click OK

Now it should work -
left-click on BoincLogX icon in System Tray to see this.

Or Right click and choose Overall view to see all tasks (not yet processed).

You have to wait for some tasks to complete before you can see some "history".

Now (if not already) you can install SetiMapView by the same author to see the results "in the sky" :)

BoincLogX have to run all the time so it can collect data monitoring the files in BOINC Data folder and creating his own logs.
