Has anyone tried running seti on Vista RC2?

I just loaded Vista and haven't yet configured BOINC to run - that is a project for today

If I'm not mistaken Windows reports it as "longhorn Pro". If so, I see two of them on my benchmark comparison spreadsheet.

Do you have Vista configured as a single or multi user or as a service?

I run boinc on Vista RC2(Longhorn)5744(not the newest) as single user mode.

It runs fine, but it does not set its priority to low.

I can't really feel that it is running, so maybe it is running in low priority, just can't see it in taskmanager....?

I have installed BOINC on Vista RC2 as a service. For upgrade sanity, it is not installed in the PF folder. Appears to work fine.
