Sergei:

I just downloaded BOINC software and joined Project Amicable.
How do I add tasks to my computers CPU for your projects?

Sorry, but we only have 64-bit applications: https://sech.me/boinc/Amicable/apps.php
You need to have 64-bit Windows or Linux for this project.

Sergei:

Okay. I have a 64 bit system and a Ubuntu Boot Disk running Linux-x64 64 bit OS. If I boot under that OS and download BOINC for Linux then should I see tasks to load and run for Amicable? Thanks.

Sergei:

Yes, I must be be 64 bit, Windows OS Infomation about Processor is AMD 64 bit 2 core. It should work then with 64 bit Ubuntu, runs as a boot from disk, although it seems it probably must be installed on the system disk to install and run Linux-x64 BOINC.

By the way, what percentage of the total tasks of the Project Amicable are still available?

Thanks,

Alan
