Hi All, I have a 6 core Ryzen 3600X with SMT disabled. How can I direct it to channel all cores to one workunit in app_config.xml? If someone can give me a sample using llr321, I can take the rest from there, please. Thank you!

Alright, so I followed the directions line for line, and BOINC is still behaving the same. I restarted BOINC, the computer, and told it to read the local config file. Any ideas/suggestions?

if you move the file to E:\Program Files\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com\app_config.xml it should work (if the contents of the file are right).

app_config.xml is for per-project settings

What is the file called, and where is it located?


app_config.xml

located in E:\Program Files\BOINC\


It's in the wrong place. That's where the BOINC program resides. This needs to go where the data is stored.

It goes in a specific subfolder of the BOINC data directory. Normally that would be C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com, but since you've installed BOINC on the E: drive it may be E:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com.

If you're not sure where the BOINC data directory is, look at the beginning of the BOINC log. It tells you where the data directory is located. Wherever the BOINC data directory is, the app_config.xml file goes in the projects\www.primegrid.com sub-directory.

EDIT: Note that this goes in \ProgranData\, not \Program Files\.

It's in the wrong place. That's where the BOINC program resides. This needs to go where the data is stored.

It goes in a specific subfolder of the BOINC data directory. Normally that would be C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com, but since you've installed BOINC on the E: drive it may be E:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.primegrid.com.

If you're not sure where the BOINC data directory is, look at the beginning of the BOINC log. It tells you where the data directory is located. Wherever the BOINC data directory is, the app_config.xml file goes in the projects\www.primegrid.com sub-directory.

EDIT: Note that this goes in \ProgranData\, not \Program Files\.


I have no Program Data folder anywhere. Log shows Data directory to be e\program files\boinc

I am beginning to despise BOINC.

By the way, it's behaving the same way it used to before I wanted to change boinc's behavior. I am unable to bend this thing to my will. It worked previously, and indeed is behaving the same way as before, as though nothing changed (even after removing old app_config file).

You may need to turn on the display of hidden and system directories in order to see ProgramData. (Note that ProgramData does not have a space in it, while Program Files does.)
You definitely do have a ProgramData directory if you're running Windows, even if you can't find it.

That being said, it's entirely possible (but if so, highly unusual) that BOINC could be configured to use Program FIles as the data directory. I'd expect that to be problematic, however, since Windows expects the protections to be different on the program directories (which are not supposed to change) than in the data directory (which IS intended to change).

If you manually configured BOINC to use Program Files as the data directory, and you're having any sort of trouble with BOINC, my recommendation would be to uninstall BOINC and reinstall it with the data directory actually in ProgramData (or, really, any place other than Program Files.)
