Stupid noob question here, but I'm attempting to install the latest CUDA optimized apps and it seems to me that when I create an app_info.xml with the various pieces of information that come with the x41zc package, I will no longer have any app entries for the various stock CPU applications.

Is there a solution for this problem, perhaps a "default" app_info.xml file that I could use? Or am I missing something entirely?

quick answer is that it won't work. You should also install the CPU optimized apps. That will cut your run times down by about 50%

OK... fine by me. Where would I find them? Lunatics currently isn't available, and I don't know of any other CPU optimized apps for Windows.

So I guess the story right now is that there AREN'T any optimized CPU apps available thanks to the Lunatics legal business?

It has nothing to do with Lunatics.
Its a GPL issue and we are working on it.

You can run stock CPU apps using an app_info.xml. It just falls into the "not advised" category. One issue is that the stock apps will no longer get updated from the server.</disclaimer>

You would just need to add the CPU info to the current app_info.xml you have. Here is a stripped down example displaying CPU & GPU info in an app_info.xml.

<app_info> 
    <app>
        <name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
    </app>
    <file_info>
        <name>stock_cpu_app.exe</name>
        <executable/>
    </file_info>
    <app_version>
        <app_name>setiathome_enhanced</app_name>
        <version_num>603</version_num>
	<platform>windows_x86_64</platform>
        <file_ref>
           <file_name>stock_cpu_app.exe</file_name>
           <main_program/>
        </file_ref>
    </app_version>
    <app>
        <name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
    </app>
    <file_info>
        <name>Lunatics_x41g_win32_cuda32.exe</name>
        <executable/>
    </file_info>
    <file_info>
        <name>cudart32_32_16.dll</name>
        <executable/>
    </file_info>
    <file_info>
        <name>cufft32_32_16.dll</name>
        <executable/>
    </file_info>
    <app_version>
        <app_name>setiathome_enhanced</app_name>
        <version_num>610</version_num>
	<platform>windows_x86_64</platform>
        <plan_class>cuda</plan_class>
        <avg_ncpus>0.040000</avg_ncpus>

I also noticed there was no cpu app specified in the mbcuda.aistub file for cuda 4.2. I'm running seti 6.10.60. Can I leave the AK_v8b2_win_x64_SSE3.exe and the appropriate entries in app_info from Lunatics_Win64_v0.40 and continue using the optimized cpu tasks and also are you saying that with the x41zc I won't receive any cpu apps from the seti server?
