    After looking through my other system I found the option. Under 'Advanced' -> 'Options' make sure the 'Enable Manager exit' option is checked and press OK. When you close the manager via 'File' -> 'Exit' you will see this pop up:

    Make sure both options are checked, and whenever you close the science apps will close as well.

    Hope that helps!

    Apparently that options works when I run the program under admin mode. Anyone know of a way to get it to work under regular user mode?

    DAMN IT, I went to install a 9800GTX in my machine. The green light is on in the back of the card so I know it's working BUT NOTHING ON THE SCREEN. I tried the other slot, and still nothing.

    Errr I wonder if this ASUS EVO has a problem with N cards.....I also went into bios, and turned off onboard but that didn't help eaither. It did boot with the card in, and the monitor hooked on the motherboard so I know it's not locking up the system....

    I would beta test, but I would hate for it to cause an error and BSOD or crash my rig. Loose Crunching and Folding time?! Its hard enough fighting off these random EUEs!

    So quick question, has any one heard of boinc being run in a computer farm setup at home? I know there is a way to set folding up for that but has any one done boinc like that.

    Mike047 used to have a huge farm (30+ IIRC) of AMD Athlon 3800X2s. Farms are very possible :rockout:

    I used to run 18 computers, I used 4 port KVM switches to one monitor. But there is a program called boincview.

    http://www.boinc-wiki.info/BoincView_Installation_and_Set-Up_Guide

    I hope it is of some help to you.

    I have four of my machines running in the attic, folding and crunching, without any monitors.

    I use Boincview/FahMon to keep an eye on them and UltraVNC if I need to connect to them.

    I've not setup BoincView yet.. but I use FahMon for folding and UltraVNC for local/farm, and VPN for remote PC's. You can always login to WCG website to check PC's that have crunched in a period of days. So, Yes farms are welcome!

    I wrote a guide to BOINCview that I think is clearer, see my sig ;)
    BOINCView is great, I use it to monitor all of the computers in my house (the other ones I just check every couple days via WCG). I strongly suggest that you set it up ;)
