Help!: NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card not seen by Seti@Home.

Have a new (Windows10) HP Omen Desktop 870-224 with an intel Core i5-7400 @ 3.0 GHz.
This system has an NVidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB gaming graphics card.
This is a standard (if entry level) gaming system from Best Buy.

If anyone can offer guidance, please be aware that i would need click by click instructions. (i.e. enter <boinc.exe --detach_console> into the console manager ...would not be enough.)

Looking at the server records it would appear that asking the question has resulted in your computer getting some work fotr its gpu.....

Can you please post the BOINC start up messages?
Exit & restart BOINC in the normal manner, then with BOINC Manager open press CTRL+SHIFT+E, click the Copy all button, post that here.

That's your problem. To fix this, uninstall BOINC, reinstall it, third screen of the installer click Advanced, uncheck "service install", continue installation.

Wow ! Many thanks. The GPU runs about 19 times faster than each of the 4, Core i5 threads (8 min. vs. 2 1/2 hrs).
BTW, that "Service Install" option during the install process, is accompanied by a very, to me, misleading comment or "Helpful" explanation which suggested that choosing this option would be safer !!
Thanks again.

"Run applications under a privileged account. This provides increased protection from faulty applications, and on Windows, it will prevent the use of applications that use the graphics chip (GPU)."
I've tried to get this blurb cleared up many times, but the BOINC builder for Windows still refuses. In any case, in the roundabout way, it does tell you that you can't use your GPU for calculations when installed as a service.

The reason why the service install won't be able to use the GPU is a Windows security measure that BOINC can't circumvent: this way of installing adds the privileged user accounts that the BOINC service runs with. These run in a different session than that the drivers that you installed run in. This causes the drivers not to be found, thus no detection of the GPU. The privileged account cannot install its own drivers.
