I want to run the gtx 680 and 560 with 3 WUs per GPU, and the 520 with 2 Wus/GPU.
I was thinking the way to do this would be have two clients running, with the appropriate info in each of cc_config files and app_info files so that client 1 runs 2 wus on the 680 and 560 and client 1 runs 2 wus per 520.
But the problem is that even when I put boinc in two different directories (Both the programdata and the program file)...the boincmgr.exe pulls up the same client each time! Can I not monitor two boinc processes from 2 boinc mngrs?
In other words I can't get two managers to run at the same time, although at one point I was able to get two boinc.exe running...i had no way to monitor them outside of the cmdline...but haven't been able to repeat that since reinstallng.
What am I doing wrong?
WIndoys 7 64bit, tried using version 6.12, 7.0 and a combination of both. all three scenariors produce same results..i.e. can run and monitor two clients at same time.
maybe instead of trying to figure out what i did wrong, someone can just explain how to run and monitor two boinc clients/managers from 1 pc....or even a better way to get 3wus on 1 gpu and 2 wus on another.

As for your problem, I'm not sure, because I didn't ever try it myself, but I think with windows you'll have to delete the registry entries for the data directory to get the clients to pick different ones. And you'll have to start one with a different gui_rpc_port (the default one is "Pi" (31416)).
And the BOINC manager should have a corresponding command line option, though I couldn't find one in the help display (boincmgr --help).
