Is there a way to run E@H as a service? I have access to some LAN computers, but when not in use they sit at the login screen. Is there a way to run E@H when not logged in as a specific user?

From the front page to the message boards do a keyword search for:-

boinc_cli -install

You will be amazed at how easy it is. (To search, that is :). )

Cheers,

I can get my boinc_cli

I can get my boinc_cli running as a service but it doesn't crunch any numbers.. boinc_cli just sits around. What could my problem be?

There are a couple of possibilities. BOINC_cli does not do any of the real work. This is done by the science applications.

The other possibility is that you have not attached to a project yet.

What user is the service running as? What permissions do you have on the boinc folder? Have a look at this FAQ for some suggestions.
Look under "Simple Installation Guide" for "Run Windows CLI as a service".

Edit: I'm assuming you have done the GUI install and attached to a project and downloaded work first, just to make sure everything is working correctly?

Cheers,
Gary.

i see that it doesn't work if

i see that it doesn't work if i set it not to crunch when the pc is in use, if i set it to work all the time it works.. does the service decide if the pc is in use differently than the normal client?
