"cnet TechTracker multi-update download from scan error!"

September 23, 2011  |  By victordsmith

 |  Version: BOINC 6.12.33

Pros

I thought it was a good idea (techtracker)

Cons

downloaded TechTracker from c-net, performed scan, and instructed the program to download the multiple updates applicable to the software on my computer. As each tried to open and install, error box pops up with : "installer GUI will not initialize"

Summary

can't use any of these updates until this issue is resolved

"Best application of its type."

September 10, 2011  |  By 1alexh

 |  Version: BOINC 6.12.33

Pros

It's all good.

Cons

Not a thing to say in the negative.

Summary

If you have spare computer power, donate it to this project; it is well worth it, and won't cost you a thing.

"Not bad but they took out stuff..."

September 07, 2011  |  By Peterd29

 |  Version: BOINC 6.12.33

Pros

It remains a great medium for individual running apps for a larger project.

Cons

I like the messages that would come out as the program was running. In this version, they removed the option and only have certain things coming out in the messages.

Summary

Keep up the science computer work!!!!!

"Glad to see my spare CPU cycles put to good use"

August 31, 2011  |  By BrerBunny

 |  Version: BOINC 6.12.33

Pros

It feels great to participate in philanthropic causes, and BOINC allows you to do this with ease. You can set the amount of CPU, memory and disk space it uses and network usage too. Some projects have a nice screensaver too.

Cons

If not set properly, it can bring your system to its knees, so it requires some care in the installation process. Also, it doesn't warn you if your project has gone offline.

Summary

Take part in altruistic causes and it's free! I particularly like the SETI project. Great for scientists, IT enthusiasts and curious people alike.

"WILL NOT UPGRADE!"

July 29, 2011  |  By mikewbradbury

 |  Version: BOINC 6.12.33

Pros

None, iot won't install so it won't work!

Cons

Partially installs, then tries to find the .msi file in a folder with a long alphanumeric name, and is in another one. Change it to look where the one with today's date is, and you are told it is an invalid install fine, for WIndows 7 anyway

Summary

I can't install it, up grade it or use it!

Cool screen savers, helps science for free.

not enough people know about it.

I have been using SETI@Home for decades, It has never caused aproblem on mt MAC or PC, and it does a lot of good work (Other Progs. too) for free. Down load and start helping science today!
