Now, Enter a "Member Name" in the field next to "Member Name".
I chose the name "floozie".
Next, type the password you chose two times, once in the "Enter a Password" field and again in the "Retype your Password" field.
Type your email twice also, once in the "E-mail Address" field and once in the "Confirm E-mail Address" field.
I left the "Information" box checked. Uncheck it if you do not want to receive emails from WCG.
I checked the box to "Participate in All Projects" under "Available Projects" and the box to accept the "End User Software License Agreement".
After you have made all your decisions and checked what you want, click on the "Continue" button at the bottom right of the window.
The next window should tell you that you are registered and offer a download for you to make.
Click on the "Download Now" button.
A "File Download" window will appear giving you a choice of "Run", Save", or "Cancel".
Click the "Save" button.
A "Save as" window will appear with "wcg_boinc_5.10.22_windows_intelx86" as the name of the file and "Desktop" as the default download location. Use the drop-down arrow to the right of the "Save in" field if you want to browse and download the file to another location.
Click "Save" in the "Save as" window.
The file is almost 9 megabytes in size and will take a while to download if you have a slow connection. Be patient, if you have to wait.
When the download is finished, find the "wcg_boinc_5.10.22_windows_intelx86" file and double-click it to start the install of BOINC.
If a security warning window appears, click "Run" on it also to start the installer.
After a few seconds of configuring the Installer and Windows, a welcome window will appear. When you get through admiring its pretty colors, click the "Next" button.
In the "License Agreement" window that shows up next, click on the "I accept the terms in this license agreement" radio button to put a dot in it.
Click the "Next" button.
The next window is a "Destination Folder" window. Click the "Change" button to browse for another location if you don't want Boinc installed to C:\Program Files\BOINC\.
When ready, click the "Next" button.
The next window is the "Setup Type" window, offering you the choice of "Single-user Installation", "Shared Installation", or "Service Installation". Choose which one you want and click its radio button to put a dot in it. I chose "Single-User" mainly because it is the recommended choice.
Click the "Next" button when you are ready.
Next is a "Single-User Installation Configuration" window. I unchecked the "Make BOINC your default screensaver" radio button and left the "Launch BOINC when logging on" radio button checked.
If you knew enough about computers to choose another "Setup Type" besides "Single-User", then you probably know enough to set the configurations for them without my help.
Click the "Next" button one more time.
The "Ready to Install the Program" window appears next.
Click on the "Install" button and let BOINC install itself.
After about 20 seconds of displaying the progress of the install in one more window, BOINC stopped and presented an "Intsall Completed" window.
I left the "Launch World Community Grid - BOINC Agent" box checked.
Finally, click on the "Finish" button.
If the "Atach to project window" appears then skip the next three sentences.
====== If BOINC does not show an "Attach to Project" window you will have to click on "Advanced View" at the bottom right of the "BOINC Manager" window.
When the "Advanced" window opens, click on "Tools" at the top and a drop-down menu will appear. Click on the "Attach to project..." option in that menu.
This will open an "Attach to project" window. ======
I have been a PC911 UD member since it started. However, I haven't sent any data in over a year and I noticed that the UD site has changed but my UD agent is still executing tasks now that I'm back up and running. How can I look at our team stats? Are they at this new site? Do I have to download this new device?
yes, i remember your name, your were by somebody named sleepsalot or something in the stats for a long time.
most of us are working with boinc now. i forget why. aren't you glad I answered?
seriously, i think the UD project with Oxford was done. but if you'd like an answer to your question, i think you'd have more luck if you started a new thread. also, your machine has to have certain requirements to run boinc, which most people's have, but i was running an antique and couldn't run boinc and that's why i don't know any of this.
nice to see you and good luck! i hope you do decide to run the boinc with us.
