From BOINC Manager window click button 'Project web pages' then 'Your Account' then browser opens and look for blue link under 'Preferences' then click 'SETI@home preferences' scroll to bottom of page and click 'Edit SETI@home preferences'. Then under 'Run only the selected applications' you may tick 'SETI@home v7' I left 'SETI@home enhanced' checked. C'mon geeks, yall should have a post here with instructions like mine. "dammit! I am the great cornholio!"...

Answer: I rebooted with both SETI programs ticked and after boot-up the SETI@home Enhanced (which was the only program I have ever run) was auto-unchecked.... and the only program checked (after reboot) was 'SETI v7'.. like Bob said (good on ya Bob) "just sit back and watch the show".. well maybe .. unless yer really dumber than a bag of rocks like me LOL!

In other words- Any of you newbies out there in never-never-land (like me) follow my previous posts instructions and you should have no problems getting V7 to run. God bless America and raise yer glass to the geeks!

Just noticed, that
1. with the DL of new set of WU, there was a .dll among the files (?)
2. An AP DL failed for unknown reasons. Was OK before the Version 7 thing happened.

Anyone seen this happen before?

EDIT: I renamed the app_info.xml as posted here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=71773&postid=1373766

Is this the reason why the AP DL failed?

Remove your app_info, Restart Boinc and reset the project, the project will send you the new applications.

I've done it and I've received only Astropulse_V6 6.01 for CPU and 04 for CUDA (standard apps).
I don't see any new app_info
Questions:
1) lunatics apps are dead? Forever?
2) When I will receive V7?
3) For config file in order to run multiple CUDA, have I to write it by hand?

Thanks in advance

1) All the Stock v7 GPU apps are Lunatics apps now!
2) You did go and enable 'SETI@home v7: yes' in your project preferences didn't you?
3) No, you copy and paste it from one of the posts in Number Crunching, and edit it to your requirements.

1: great! But Only GPU? Why not CPU Too? Sooner or Later?
2: NO, I didn't. Now I've done it on project page and I'v done "update" on the host 25 min ago. Nothing, untill now. Have I to reset again or have I only to wait?
3: What do you mean with (mine) requirements?

I have found this:

Make a new text file named app_config.xml and have this in the contents

<app_config>
<app>
<name>setiathome_v7</name>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


and this

<app_config>
<app> <name>setiathome_enhanced</name>
<max_concurrent>6</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>0.04</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>


As I understand I will have V6 and V7, both GPU and CPU.
On some Hosts I run only one GPU task, on three ones I run two.

1) 'reset the project' will empty the whole 'setiathome.berkeley.edu' folder including all files.

now everybody runs optimized apps, and the credit calculation still based on the old standard 'SETI@home Enhanced' app runtimes / performance.
credits/h go down 75%
lol, im not sure to waste more energy and money with this project. plan was to reach 10,000,000. credits, but not with this conditions.

What is the point in reaching 10 million credits? Do you expect to get a free car then?
Why not just doing it for the sake of science (like most people here do)?

Eric said he'd post some details on the differences with the new app back on Thursday. I guess he didn't get around to doing it

Well... I reached 10,000,000! Where is my car?

The science is now getting better with V7. Here's to Science - not numbers!

expect a free car... funny guy
10 million was just my target.
i waste 120€/month for the science, so i can expect at least correct credits
electricity becomes more and more expensive, so stop computing, save resources, and use the money for nice holidays

Kwitherbitchen........
My last electric bill was $620.00 US.
That's for ONE month, kiddo.

And BTW, I do not consider it 'wasted'. I am advancing one of the most dedicated and worthwhile computer projects on the planet.
You won't get any sympathy from me on THAT one.

Nice try though.
