Hi,
I've only just joined the project, and I have installed boinc and connected to the project.

The .tga files appear to be downloaded in ProgramData, and there is an executable (I assume for the screensaver) though it's named sixtrack_4.67_windows_intelx86.exe so was wondering if boinc had detected the wrong version of windows. (I have tried running it in compatibility modes to no effect). The screensaver just shows the % of the current task completed along with the boinc logo.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Dave

This project will not show graphics with windows vista, or with any version 6 installation of BOINC. The science application needs to be upgraded before it will work in those configurations.
