Hi!
I'm wondering why get I no CPU tasks. All options in "Preferences" are selected, my processor meets technical requirements (if they are the same for all GPUGrid projects) but even if there are lots of quantum chemistry simulatons to do I get no one. What's wrong? Are reqiurements for that project are higher?

Heh, it explains everything. Thanks. As I understand it's not possible to virtualise it? I use VirtualBox for LHC@home project.

You can install a Linux OS on a Virtual Machine.

VirtualBox uses Linux. There's more information about that tool:

VirtualBox can be installed on Windows, Linux and Solaris. You can choose which Linux version you want. I use the last version in the list,64 bit, then I compile the kernel modules using GCC, make ,perl and the OS source files.

If you are running LHC you must have VirtualBox already installed. Open the Virtual Box Manager, select New and install Linux from a CD or DVD. You must download it from a Web source. I am using SuSE Linux, but most people use Ubuntu.

Okey, I'll try it soon. Thank you again :)
