    Hello New team members.. and old..hehehe
    I've been working on an auto WCG cc_config.xml file setup for new members. I've wrote this for XP, Vista, and (Win7 (Thanks to Chicken_Patty)).

    Ok here we go

    First Select version to download WCGConfigEZ.zip on screen font is white. The WCGConfigEZnGreen.zip on screen font is green (for [ION] :D).
    download either attached file to desktop.
    Unzip the file to desktop.
    After unzipping the file you will need to Execute it.. (run.. Double click)

    First screen
    [​IMG]
    Just press any key to continue

    next

    Second screen
    [​IMG]
    Just press any key to continue

    next

    Third screen
    [​IMG]
    Just press any key to continue

    You're finished! Enjoy!

    If for some reason you receive this next screen your OS has not been configured... Just send me a private message with your OS version

    [​IMG]

    Thanks and Enjoy! :toast:

    New Version v1.3
    Allows the user to select what Color/flavor Menu! Hope everyone likes it!

    Also, I've added FordGT90Concept's exe "wcg_configurator_1_1_0.zip"! It's very nice as well! Thanks Ford! :respect:

    FordGT90Concept's exe is a new release! With this new release lets the user install WCG to any directory and his exe will find it's location by use of the registry key. This is a great benefit to users with SSD's and don't want it installed on the ssd (System Directory).



    Old Version v1.2
    With the help of stanhemi WCGConfigEZ is compatible with Boinc x64. He was receiving the "OS NOT CONFIGURED!" These is because Boinc x64 does not create the cc_config.xml file and I didn't configure my batch to create one. Now It will. Thanks stanhemi!


    Disclaimer
    if after executing this file you feel good about yourself. Then great you're a person with feelings! Thank You! From a proud TechPowerUp! Member!

    It automatically rewrites the cc_config.xml to read

    <cc_config>
    <options>
    <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
    </options>
    </cc_config>

    Have you tried it yet? Cp?

    You can't just delete the file... I have only set the command to check for the file.

    Just open your cc_config.xml file and delete content... Close and execute WCGConfigEz.bat.. I want to get some feed back on useablity. Will you be a WCGConfigEz.bat tester? hehehe Thanks bro!

    Works on XP! Thanks! Could you possibly change the font to green? I think it's easier to read like that ;)

    Any chance you could do the shade of green in this pic:
    [​IMG]
    I think the shade you have is too dark and hard to read ;)
