I want to reinstall LHC@home (after I lost everything due to a lightning strike), but the BOINC Manager "attach to a new project" button requires me to enter an "account key"

Q. How do I get the account key resent?

You can have the account key sent to the email address you signed up with from this page

http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/get_passwd.php

It also sounds like you have an older client. The current client only requires an email address and a password to sign up to a project that you already have a account at. You can download the latest client from here

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php

Hope this helps

No, it depends on the method how the user try to attach to the project. For a attachment with the commandline client you need the account key.

There is also a other method to lookup the account key :
- start the boinc client
- open a new terminal an type "boinc_cmd --lookup_account http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome $EMAIL_ADDRESS $YOUR_PASSWORD" - this would print out the account key.
- Now attach :
- stop the boinc client and issue "./boinc_client -attach_project http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome $ACCOUNTKEY"
or
- Don't stop the BOINC client and issue "./boinc_cmd --project_attach http://lchathome.cern.ch/lhcahtome $ACCOUNT_KEY"
