Well apparently I ahve cpu folding I think, It shows on [email protected] Viewer that like I have 2 hours to go or sumthing, but it doesnt say anywhere how many PPD I have. How do I fold with my gpu? When I open FAHMON it says create a client but I dont know what the "location" is.

Whoop my bad, apparently I am folding with my gpu, now how do I foldwith my cpu? I open that virtual thing with vmware and it shows the black screen with all that stuff I checked the IP in my browser all of it is good, Im folding for HWC's code, but where can I check how much PPD I am getting for my CPU and even on my GPU? OH and what does FAHMON do?

The viewer is useless, so don't bother using it. For CPU folding, I suggest that you go with Linux VMs as per the guide linked above since it will give you significantly better performance than running the standard Windows clients (especially the standard client, since you're only using one core of your CPU right now).

To get your GPU folding, just download the GPU client and install it. Configure it to your liking, and point FahMon toward this directory to monitor it: C:\Users\**User name here**\AppData\Roaming\[email protected]

And DON'T use the GPU viewer since it will kill your performance while open. Just use FahMon to monitor your stats.

If you've got the VMs running then you're already folding on your CPU. Go into Task Manager to confirm that your CPU is being used at 100%. Also, you should consider using a program like WinAFC or Prifinity to automatically set your GPU client priority higher than the CPU clients so it won't get starved for CPU cycles.

To check your PPD from the VMs, use this for the location: \\192.168.x.xxx\c\etc\folding\1\ (replace the x.xxx with the numbers at the ends of the IP addresses that your VMs are using)

You'll have to add one client for each VM. Use the same path, except change the IP address for each client to correspond to the IP of each of your VMs.
Oh and when I go to folding.stanford.edu and go to the stats, I cant see my username anywhere...
Your stats won't show up until you've uploaded your first work unit to Stanford and their servers have updated (updates happen at 1, 4, and 7 AM and PM EST).

it'll take a while after your first WU to show up, 24h maybe. and put this into your location: C:\Users\BT\AppData\Roaming\[email protected]\ << change the BT to your pc's user account name. :)
