Well, I didn't get a chance to update BOINC yesterday, so today is the day. I've already set No New Tasks and am waiting for the WUs to finish and report. After that, i'm going to uninstall and then update
I'll be posting later with any news; hopefully it'll work without any issue
Edit and update:
Well, it looks like the steps worked but I'm still getting driver crashes a few seconds in. Every time I try to run more than 1 WU, boom! driver crash. So this sucks! I was really hoping that it would work on Windows 8 finally, but alas, not yet.
If anyone knows if i'm missing something or if anyone knows how to get it working nicely on Windows 8, I'm ALL EARS!
*I'm running 12.11beta driver, either 7 or 8. I have tried 12.10 before, but maybe I'll give it another go
**Norton pointed me to a link at XS which may prove to be beneficial; I'm trying it out now
***No success yet, going to try later on.
