Installation

1. Unpack files.
Run the self-extracting installer to unpack the SMP client files. You will be given the option of telling the installer where you want to install the SMP client files, but it's best leaving it to install in the default directory - C:Program Files.

2. Client installation.

Once the installer has finished its job, you will find this in your installation directory.

SMP install directory

I have added a couple of extra files into the directory, but I'll explain those later when I add to this article. The additional information will cover reconfiguring FahMon to read the ETA's of work units. Let's head over the page...

Excellent guide PV, hope it didn`t dent u`r hols too much >.<

Am I to assume straight-off-the-bat, that if u`r using a stripped install of XP with amoungst other things .Net framework (V2) not installed - unless u choose to install it, u can`t run SMP ?Quote

Thanks Rastalovich it was my pleasure. I still have plenty of hols yet to burn, so it's cool.

In answer to your question, unfortunately the SMP client requires .NET in order to run simulations.

Thanks Toxcity...that help you out? Yes you should finish your current WU's otherwise they will simply be passed onto someone else to do. Plus it's results that Stanford will have to wait further time forQuote

In relation to the Tox question, I would *like* to assume that a work folder is a work folder and u should be able to transfer one to the other - however, in this crazily slanted world we live in, I bet u can`t >.< I guess the same thought should be given to making mac work folders work in pcs and vice-versa, but ???

I`d be interested if any fashion of `queueing` could be sorted out for work-loads. Reason I ask is if u have 10 pcs folding, then suddenly have to use these pcs for something else, it`d be ideal to gather up all the work folders on each one and be able to stack it all on another pc to be dealt with when it has time. It`s a pita to make the thing ask for net acess and introduce folders from another pc and so on..Quote
