hey bro go to Start/run and put "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\ProgramData\BOINC\". Make sure that takes you to your config file. Then check to see if it's set to read only.
Am I doing it wrong or something?
Manually go to c: drive then programData, BOINC. If that's not it your Config file is located somewhere else. Try searching for the file.
BOINC is not installed in my SSD, would that be an issue?
Yepper.. I'll work on a fix bro. Try to have it ready tomorrow.
Is there any downside to installing it on a SSD? I heard that somewhere, maybe it's BS but I didn't do it because of that. If so I can re install it.
well it constantly writes to the drive is the only down fall. What kind of drive do you have?
EDIT: Have you tried Ford's exe? It may do the same thing.. but its worth trying.
Super Talent 64GB GX2
Well the Reliability MTBF 1,000,000 hrs... So, I think you would be fine.. I would just try it and see if there is any performance lose... What drive letter do you have it installed on?
EDIT: I can just modify the current install to point to your drive letter.
That'll be great bro
I have it on Drive D D:
Just tried to load on my crunchers. Getting the OS not optimized thing. Win XP Pro Version 2002 SP3.
Here you go Captain Chicken Patty! This version works for anyone where they have wcg installed on D: drive! Enjoy!
HAHAHA, I feel the love man , but I still get the same error
Do you have WCG installed on your system drive? If so can you give me the path? Thanks
Try going to start\run then putting in "%AllUsersProfile%\Application Data\BOINC\". This shoulc take you to your config file location.
Check and make sure your file is located at D:\ProgramData\BOINC\ or D:\BOINC\?
That's where I chose them to be, but I can't find the BOINC folder
Do a search for "cc_config.xml". Then tell me the path.
EDIT:It may not have created the file on install. Try searching for "account_www.worldcommunitygrid.org.xml". This file should have been created. The cc_config.xml will need to be in the same folder.
Ok, now I'm puzzled
Yea I don't think WCG installer creates the file anymore. Do a search for "account_www.worldcommunitygrid.org.xml" and tell me the path to that file.
Here you go brotha
Take a quick pic of the D:\Program Data file. It's odd that BOINC didn't create a BOINC folder inside the program data file.
All folders are being shown BTW
Here you go Brotha!
