"Seamless download/installation of the available upgrade"

December 01, 2011  |  By Guidocnet

Pros

Love to be able to contribute my spare cpu time for a worthwhile cause. Boinc fits the bill. I have been at it for several years and just recently reached 100000 work units...

Cons

None...No issues installing the application or the upgrade

Summary

Great way to contribute to scientific research

"Has not worked on my computer for several months now."

November 20, 2011  |  By criadaddy

 |  Version: BOINC 6.12.34

Pros

When it works, it makes good use of processor time when not in use bu user.

Cons

Have tried to download several times, and the install cannot find its own msi file, even though it is where it is supposed to be. Also my computer cpu runs too much for the program to run, even when it would install.

Summary

If it would install, I would run it.
