Hello,

I just managed to migrate one of my computers from Windows XP 32bit to Windows 8 Pro, while keeping all statistics.

I also upgraded the Boinc Client SW from 6.10.60 to 7.0.44, Lunatcis GPU client from 38g to 41xc in one row.

So it seems doable without getting multiple clients.

The computer name stayed the same. I wonder if I change the first character of the host name from lower case to upper case. Will Boinc still recognize it as the same host?
