Hi Joseph, Perhaps you can

Message 11034 in response to message 11033

Hi Joseph,

Perhaps you can help me. I’m trying to run ThreadMaster to limit the amount of CPU Einstein can use, but no luck. I installed ThreadMaster and edited the registry settings as per the “Readme” instructions to limit the “boinc_bui.exe” application to 30%, however the app still runs at 100%.

Any tips or suggestions?

I’m running Windows XP Home Edition.


Looking at the docs for threadmaster, I think you should have added einstein_4.79_windows_intel86.exe instead of boinc_bui.exe.


Thanks for the advice.

After I posted my e/mail I upgraded from V4.19 to V4.43 and during the installation I realized my mistake and changed the app to einstein_4.79... ThreadMaster is working fine now.


BOINC_gui.exe and BOINC.exe do very little real work. It is the project applications that do the real work and take up all of the CPU time.
