Installers have been temporarily removed pending resolution of some concerns related to the licensing.

You have to wait until the problem is resolved. All other sites that mirror should have the same problems.
Some legal issues with Intel software/libraries:

You may NOT patch/edit or modify the binary in any way.
In case you do so, you might be violating COPYRIGHTED parts of the binary generated by Intels Compiler and the IPP Libraries.

Bumping this thread...

How are the license negotiations going?
Any idea on the time to completion


(Perfectly selfish reason, I'm about to commission a new cruncher and I want to move as quickly as possible to using the Lunatics amazing product as I doubt the stock application will cause three GTX690s to break sweat)

Copy the apps from your other host with nVidia GPU, even if the CPU app might not be the perfect one for the CPU in the new machine, it's for sure better than stock.

Hmm, I hadn't thought of that - it should work as both will have AMD cpus and the OS will be the same (or at least as any two installations of windoze will allow).


Any DLLs I need to keep an eye out for?

Well, since there is only one app for AMD, you have all you need.

If there are any in your SETI dir, you should take them with, I don't have any nVidia GPU, so can't tell you exactly. You can simply copy everything from your SETI dir except for the WUs of course.

All files you need should be mentioned in your appinfo.xml.

This is the kittyman speaking.

I have ALL the files.

Every single one of them.

Trash talk does not get you even one.
No, I won't betray the Lunatics's trust.
Why would I?

Must be because I have some morals some do not.



100% Agree

Just who is "instigating license infringement"? I have seen nothing to prevent continuing use of the lunatics apps just cannot download them until the issue is resolved. I have had the installation files sitting in my downloads folder for ages, as has everyone else who uses them unless they deliberately deleted. No offers have been made to send the files on as far as I am aware. Where's the high moral issue guys?

I'm not a lawyer, but...

I believe we are commenting about an attempt to SHARE these files, or even pointing someone to a site that where they may be downloaded. If the Lunatics site says there might be a legal problem: Let's be above those 'File Sharing' sites, and respect the legal process.

RE: Can we still use this application? I have no idea.

Got a PM with a question about the LUNATICs V40 installer if I got one
available?!
Does not seem like a good idea to hand it to anyone at this moment, don't
know what the exact problem is? Copyright?!

There are several posts in this thread, hidden by mods, for the reason stated in the post you comment on. There was indeed people offering to send the files in question, to anyone who wanted them, or set up a web site from where to download them.

Just because you haven't seen them, doesn't mean the posts in questions weren't posted. The mods saw them, and did what they should do to such posts.

The problem lies in some sort of conflict between the wording of the Intel license and the open source material.
We can still use anything we have, but I've been advised that it is "not advisable" to distribute to others.

My question about time to resolution still stands, but I guess with the way things are "its not going to be tomorrow".

Fine Sten-Arne. I have no argument with that but perhaps a published smack on the wrist from the mods would/should have stopped this. Would have saved me some two finger typing anyway lol.
