During these periods, your BOINC client will report "no tasks available".
Sorry for this, we're investigating the underlying cause with our database experts.


Thanks for news!!

I always think the same thing for any legacy system. They should be optimizing for the newer ones.


Microsoft has stopped support to XP 5 years ago.
All hw producers (Intel, Amd, Nvidia, etc) has stopped to update their driver.
XP has less than 4% of market share (win10 has 44%).
Why continue to support it on Boinc projects?

There is not even work even for a CPU, much less a GPU.

I managed to download a WinXP SP3 VHD image from Microsoft, so I will try and tweak our build system and test it on this.


Please, do not lose your time and effort on support XP.

Hi. I really like this project, but I have other projects on my PC, all running on the CPU, so LHC receives one work for each month. Can you create a version also for the GPUs? I have a PC with a NVidia GPU (version 310.90) so I'd like that this version could be available also for old GPUs

Contributions from volunteers on LHC@home for simulations of future accelerator and detector upgrades are indeed very much appreciated and acknowledged by scientists and mentioned in articles and papers. E.g. this paper on simulations for the HL-LHC or this one for ATLAS.


Thank you for links!

My colleague Riccardo is actively looking at redoing in C which would also allow
much more portability and also allow to be parallel on multi-core systems.
For the moment we just run tasks in parallel, which works rather well (apart
from some current infrastructure problems). I hope to come up with
some numbers next week on GPU testing.


I think you are speaking of this project
