You need to run gridcoin as admin. If you are already running Gridcoin as admin then you need to adjust your settings in BOINC.

In BOINC, go to View>Advanced view

Then go to Tools>computing preferences

In this menu setup to use 100% of the processors and use 100% of the processing time.

its already 100% of the processors and use 100% of the processing time but still getting only 50% what is the minimum projects to be attached to get 100% utilization?

The number of projects is irrelevant, as long as BOINC is currently working on something and is set-up to use 100% of the processors/processor time then you should get 100%. Double-check to make sure that your BOINC is installed in the default location (if not then you need to point to BOINC's data directory in your gridcoin.conf file) and make sure that you are running Gridcoin as Admin.

Also, if that does not work, then in BOINC go to View>Advanced View

From there go to Advanced and select "Read local prefs file".

I found Gridcoin when I was grumbling about the lack of information in CureCoin's thread.  Someone in a chat room mentioned Gridcoin so I finally read through this entire thread.  Let me say first off, Rob, you are top notch.  Very responsive and you obviously work your a*s off!

So I will be joining the fray as well.  I really like what you are doing here.  I don't understand the idea behind most crypto-currencies.  There are just too many clones now with new one's popping up every week or even every day.  However, I believe Gridcoin could literally change the world and that is why I'm so excited about it.

So I've got three computers now (not the most powerful) and I will begin working to set them up but I've also got three more in route that are set up with more intense mining in mind.  So I hope to be a contributor quite soon and will join the team when I get things working.  Again I think the development team and overall support is top notch.  I just don't see what else people can ask for.

I am super excited about this project!  Well done!

One quick question and I apologize in advance if this was listed before but there has been a great deal of changes so I want to make sure I understand how this works.  If I'm running three computers do I need to have a wallet installed on each computer?  From what I've read I believe that is the case but I want to be sure because I would prefer to have a single wallet if possible.

Hey, and welcome to Gridcoin!

Yes, you have to have a wallet on each computer. Each computer mines against the loopback address, and each wallet checks the computer it is on for BOINC usage. This prevents five computers from mining Gridcoin while one computer is running BOINC.

Great to have you ChasingYourDream! Gridcoin's still a work in progress but it's gone far the past two months it's been in existence. I agree, Rob does a great job of improving the coin almost on a semi-daily basis. Only if he didn't have to worry about a job atop Gridcoin imagine how far we could be lol. But hope you enjoy the project as much as the rest of its supporters do.

Limones is right btw, that's how it works with Gridcoin for now to ensure that no one cheats out of using BOINC

I do not know everyone that on the dev team so I really need to compliment everyone else as well.  I'm under the impression that Rob does most if not all the coding though on the Windows side that is.  Regardless, the support has been incredible.  Maybe if things go really well Rob and the rest of the team can work on this full time.  It is certainly a worthy cause!

Sorry guys but I'm starting from ground zero here with BOINC.  I noticed the link on the first page of this thread points to a version of BOINC that is actually pretty old now.  The prod version of BOINC appears to be 7.2.33.

Should I use the latest version of BOINC or the version that this thread points to?

I grabbed 7.2.33 and then decided I better ask before continuing.  Also there is an option in the BOINC install (7.2.33) about installing a service that seems to intentionally prevent applications from using GPU's.  I'm guessing we do not want to install this service and it is unchecked by default.

Is the group behind BOINC trying to shut projects like this down with the latest versions?  Why would they have a service to prevent GPU usage?

Again I apologize for my noob questions but I'm totally new to BOINC as well as Gridcoin so don't want to shoot myself in the foot by starting with the wrong version.  Smiley

Welcome to the tream!

This instruction manual might also help: http://www.gridcoin.us/download/guiminer_scrypt_alpha.txt

Thanks Traderman!  I saw that link and was unsure because of this line in the instructions.  "Download the BOINC 6.6.38 file (current version) and install it."  However BOINC 6.6.38 isn't the current version anymore.  Smiley

I'll get 6.6.38 just to make sure I'm on the same version as the instructions.  6.6.38 is almost off BOINC's download page though.  There have been several newer versions since these instructions were written.

Thanks for the reply!

I had an unusual experience this morning, I woke up to find my cgminer "frozen". It had apparently been frozen for ~4 hours and it showed the last activity as being "Waiting for work to be available from pools".

Also, when I opened my task manager, I noticed three rogue conhost.exe's on BOTH of my computers which seemed to be running silently as there were no open conhost windows to be seen.

Anyone else experience anything similar...?

***EDIT***
Also, my BOINC usage on the same machine that had frozen cgminer will no longer go above 50% usage but is usually much lower, around ~10% or so...

Gridcoin is not reporting any BOINC KH/ps despite the fact that BOINC is using 100% of the cpu's.

I have not changed ANYTHING on this machine, task manager shows BOINC as using 100%, gridcoin is STILL being launched as admin, I can see no reason for this to be happening...

***EDIT***
I ran upgrade from the RPC which did not fix the problem, I also deleted Program files (x86)\Gridcoin and re-installed from MSI, still no change.

***EDIT***
I ran repair on my BOINC installation, still no change...

***EDIT***
Ran lodctr /r from an elevated command prompt and restarted Gridcoin, still no change...
