You can always try upgrading to the latest stable (5.10.13) or doing a repair install of your current version.


I did a bit of digging, Boinc Wiki's development roadmap entry for milestone 6.0 points to the situation...

lhc@home is the only one of my projects that uses an .scr file for the screensaver, all the other projects embed the screensaver within the application code. Hence, no active 'show graphics' button.. I'll have to manually fire up the screensaver via desktop properties.

Thanks again for your help.. Turned out to be pretty simple (of course). I can't wait for the next work units!

I can't activate my screen saver, the select button remains grayed out when a workunit is running.. is there something I'm missing? I'd love to see it!


How is BOINC installed? As a service you won't be able to see graphics.

The work-around is here.


Thanks for the link!

Unfortunately, I'm running a standard XP program install rather than a service so this particular fix isn't it (if anything, as per the workaround, boinc isn't listed in services.msc).. and I take it that there are no additional downloads or anything else simple to do. Hmm. This is an excellent wiki, though, I'll spend a night or two deep within and see what I find.
