Okay, what do I have to do to see the Einstein@home spherical graphics display?

I have looked and looked everywhere in the BOINC Manager interface, and CANNOT see where/how to turn on the graphics. I understand that I should be able to run it windowed, or as a screensaver.
I'm running Windows XP.

Have you gone to display properties to select 'BOINC' as the screen saver?
Cheers, Mike.

( edit ) The screen saver of Einstein type will only display if an E@H work unit is actually processing - ie. not paused or pre-empted or whatever.

Hi Dan, Open BOINC Manager,

Hi Dan,
Open BOINC Manager, open the "Tasks or Work" tab, highlight a running workunit, and then click on the "Show Graphics" button in the commands column on the left of the screen. This should work unless you are running a very old version of BOINC :-) or your graphics card has an issue with the app.

Richard
