Now that the mini_collatz application is up and running, CPU applications have now been deprecated in the collatz application. CPUs will instead run the shorter the mini_collatz application.

To crunch with both CPUs and fast GPUs, edit your preferences as follows:
1. check "collatz",
2. uncheck "mini_collatz",
3. check "If no work for selected applications is available, accept work from other applications?"

You should get collatz workunits for your GPU and mini_collatz workunits for your CPU.

i am trying to get the ATI enhanced app going, so that i can run GPU units, but am having a little problem, It says to place the files in my collatz folder. location may vary,, i don't see any thing that resembles a collatz folder, in any directories .. I have win 7 x86. with a 3870 card. but im obviously not getting it set up right, also after i find this folder,, it says to set it up like any optimized app using the anonymous platform mechanism. I dont see any reference to this,, in the forums, to use for my own reference ,to do this. The only folder i can see , or find is the BOINC folder, however ,the .dlls Are in the win32/ folder. a little help would be greatly appreciated. I had set my preferences, how it is suggested ,to receive Collatz work tasks. I get none. Something odd, I thought , was that as long as i have any Project set, to not utilize CPU , i would not receive any work at all. I have to set all of the projects to where i will take CPU work, before any will give ANY work. Please forgive me if i'm overlooking something thats obvious.

The location of your Boinc Data directory is listed in the Boinc startup messages (as opposed to the Boinc Program directory, which is in the Program Files directory, and only contains Boinc programs and dll's),
the Boinc Data directory is hidden, so you'll need to unhide it, from there you will find your project directories,

Boinc is also not seeing your GPU, make sure you're not installed as a Protected application execution installation, as Boinc won't be able to see or use your GPU with that type of installation,
uninstall Boinc, then reinstall Boinc, making sure you don't tick Protected application execution.

Problems like this should be posted in Number Crunching or in Q&A in a New thread, Not in an unrelated News thread.
