I have recently dabbled in mining and find it very interesting. In fact, I will try to write a proof-of-concept mining application just because I enjoy that kind of thing, but that is beside the point.
I frequently have access to many PCs at my university that I would like to utilize for mining. They all have decent video cards, however OpenCL isn't installed onto any of the machines. I don't have administrative rights to these machines so I can't install OpenCL. This means I can only do CPU mining .... bleh.
Is there a way to utilize the GPU even though I only have user rights? I suspect not but I figure I would ask here to see if anyone has any type of experience with this sort of thing.
