Hey Guys,
ENV: Win 7 Pro - Nvidia GPU - 8 CPUs

I have 2 projects running: SETI and Climate prediction on this particular machine.
I have other machines running SETI only.

On the one machine mentioned above I would like to run SETI on GPU only but climate prediction on all CPUs.
I would like to run SETI on other machines with CPU.
What config do I have to edit? Do I need to restart BOINC after the change?

Regards
Vic

Go to SETI@home preferences

At bottom:
Add separate preferences for ... (choose any of home, school, work)
Change them the way you want e,g, uncheck "Use CPU"

Then go to the computer page (as your computers are "hidden" I can't give you link) and at bottom change "Location"

Do the same on other projects (but uncheck "Use GPU")

This "Use CPU" / "Use GPU" Settings control what to be Downloaded in the future.
Tasks already in the computer continue to run (finish them or abort them)
