Hey olum

Hey olum, thanks very much for the release! I just wanted to let you know I've removed the comments from the previous posts as the posts were bumped from over a year and a half ago, and likely users searching for BOINC in the future will stumble upon this thread.

BOINC on USB stick with Linux

This sounds similar to what I created just few weeks ago. Mine is also "BOINC on a USB stick", but doesn't require host system (it is complete standalone Linux distribution). The idea is that you can run it on your dedicated DC machine without a need to install hard drive or to configure etherboot etc. It also makes sure that your USB will not wear out too quickly (as all USB drives have limited write operations).

Using fixed paths?

Hi,
I thought this was a good idea, and would very much like to see it fully developed.
Trying it out, I ran in to some problems though.

The command window that opens (!) show the following commands and errors:

- - - - -
cd\
cd /d \PortableApps\BOINCPortable\Data
The system cannot find the path specified.
start "" "..\App\BOINC\boincmgr.exe"
- - - - -

A window error message pops up and explains that the file boincmgr.exe cannot be found. And since the CD-command is expecting me to use the path "\PortableApps\" as my PortableApps-folder, it fails.

Any chance of a quick update? Smiling

Question about the current status of Boinc Portable

Does anyone know the status for this? I saw that a while back, kAlug expressed an interest in doing this program. As a long time user of Boinc w/Seti@Home, I would be willing to test this one if anyone feels up to making it portable. This would solve a problem with my netbook, as it is usually not connected to the internet. Thanks... Smiling

proof?

hey. nothing against your accomplishment, but why don't you post the app as a portable app on the site?
pretty sketched out about downloading whatever that is from your dropbox. Smiling

Well...
to Add something officaly into PortableApps you have to request it at some Forum topic.
This is not a big Problem but will take some time.
Also it was more an suggestion for the inital developer to work on.

And in future I plan to switch my private projects into GitHub... Well I plan with it since 1 year and its still not done. So DropBox was the easy way.

Hi Peppernrino,

yes I am done with GitHub Smiling
unfortunately it is currently not up-to-date.
But you can have a look at https://github.com/YoursTruly55/PortableApps

If you want I can upload the launcher I had provided some posts ago, because I didn´t work on it since this post.
Since I also don´t want to maintain this launcher (because of time) probably you can it it over to maintain it if you want Smiling

I will upload the launcher when I am back at home.

Kind regards,
YoursTruly

I tries out the old

I tries out the old BOINCLauncher with new version of BOINC.
It doesnt work anymore, because they started to use the registry of windows.
I also updated the aluncher in my GitHub with the necessary keys but you still need to add a user group "boinc_users" and add your current account to this group. Then it should be running again Smiling

So at least starting with curretn version you need admin rights to update registry for paths and user group

Not so hostile takeover

Sure! I would love to try and get things running! I know a bunch of developers that are itching for a portable version of BOINC. Thank you so much for your work thus far. I'll friend you up on Github, and we can get things going. Laughing out loud
