Hi all,
I do not receive any opencl_nvidia_SoG task after reinstall.
Only slower cuda50.
My previous Sog tasks from my previous installation was wrongly file deleted.
I may be "punished".

I have a GTX1070 and cuda50 is much slower.
What could I do to get SoG tasks again?

That is normal for SETI to 'test' application speed for new installations.
It will test speed for CUDA50, CUDA60, OpenCL_sah, and SoG.
It will go to SoG after a number of tasks have been completed.

Since you're running the stock applications at some stage the Manager will download some more and allocate SoG to process them, and eventually it (should) figure out that SoG is the best application & will use just that one. However it can take several days (or longer) to finally settle down.

The other option is to make use of the Lunatics Beta 6 installer that allows you to select your preferred applications.
However when the next version of Seti comes out (whenever that may be), you will have to manually update to the new version. By running stock, it will do so automatically.

If you want SoG without waiting for the server to send it to you, you can go to Mike's World and download the latest beta installer for it
http://mikesworld.eu/download.html

I assume you know how to use the installer?

If not, just ask and we can help you thru it

You're running Win10 and your driver doesn't show the OpenCL part so I take it that you're using the Windows driver which won't get you any SoG work.

Download the latest driver directly from Nvidia and do a clean install. That should get you the OpenCL part reported and SoG work flowing.

Cheers.

Thanks all!
I knew that Cuda 4, 5 and SoG escalate progressively but it was too long vs normal and kind of blocked.

It must be that the problem because I received SoG just after reinstalling my driver.
Thanks Wiggo!
