It is in project folder too.

Example of error task: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=1094381120

P.S. Now second core normally crunches an ap task.

I finally started CUDA app on my host. I used such app_info.xml:

</app_info>


cudart.dll and cufft.dll are in project folder.

System monitor is now showing *__cuda.exe process.

But now i have another problem. CUDA uses only one CPU core. If another task tries to start it works only 8 s (i think, in this time cpu is preparing data for gpu) and then gets "computation error". It seems like GPU refusing second task.
I understand that when ap task will be downloaded it will use second core normally. But while it isn't happen all such tasks are corrupted.

I connected to GPUGrid and got such error:

I saw posts about such errors on this mesage board. I think if there is no 6.03 app on server i will get this error for seti too.

it should have downloaded the CUDA exe and dll's if it was a fresh install.


I downloaded cuda exe manually (dlls have already been in boinc folder) and created app_info.xml file with direct links to these 3 files. Then i started BOINC. It found app_info, read it without any error and tried to start cuda exe. But all tasks wrote "computation error".

P.S. When i deleted all files from project folder excepting my app_info.xml, BOINC tried to download exe but didn't find it on server.

Yes, i've tried.
I also tried to create app_info.xml with link on *__cuda.exe and 2 dlls, but when i started boinc all tasks wrote "computation error"

I've tried to use new CUDA app but it dont't work. I have amd athlon x2 4200+ CPU and 256Mb 8600GT GPU.
Now i'm running BOINC 6.5.0 (tried with 6.4.5 too, after that totally new installation) and latest CUDA drivers (180.60). I have message

19.12.2008 13:26:16||CUDA device: GeForce 8600 GT

But BOINC still is running 6.03 application.
I connected to S@H Beta but it downloads and runs 6.03 too.
I've tried to create cc_config.xml but it only runs 3rd 6.03 application.

What can I do to run 6.05_cuda app?
