Except for 1 host, i run BOINC 6.1.0. on all host's, a P4D @2,8GHz(Smithfield)(SETI@home), a T2400; HP Pavillion 8000 series Laptop (S@H & CPDN)50/50.

Two Q6600, 1 stock,VISTA32 HP+ optimized app.(AK-SSSE3),
1 OC'ed @ 3150MHz;XP32 (S@H)*+Einstein@home**,50/50 this one, i'am writing on now.

*Also optimized: AK-SSSE3
**Shows:4.26, but is 4.34

And a QX9650 @ 3250MHz, XP64, + optimized app. AK-SSE4.1 (S@H)

Would it be the BOINC 6.1.0. version, haven't payed attention to that.
S@H screen-saver graphics do work, taking the right app.
What am i doing wrong, graphics card ATI 2650, openGL capable.

Because you started crunching with the stock app (4.26), all tasks in your cache of work were "branded" with 4.26 up until the time that you changed to the power users app - 4.36. The anonymous platform mechanism (ie the use of app_info.xml) allows tasks, branded for a previous app, to be crunched by the new app. The branding is not changed but the tasks will always be crunched as specified in app_info.xml - ie using 4.36 in this case. Any new tasks that are subsequently downloaded will now be branded 4.36 for as long as app_info.xml remains in place. It is your responsibility to pay attention to any future app changes that may affect you.

I commented about the graphics in your other message. It's good netiquette not to post the same question in multiple places. Jord (Ageless) has also responded there, quoting the bit from Bernd's original message that mentioned potential problems with graphics. He also supplied a quote from Rom Walton which suggests that you may get some joy by going back to BOINC 5.x.x. until apps designed for BOINC 6.x.x are released.

Cheers,
Gary.
