Default F@H Multiple GPU issues

Alright I'm having issues setting up dual GPU's with F@H....
I followed this guide but it isn't working out... [H]ard|Forum - View Single Post - [H]orde Guides

With Vista 64
1) Disabled SLI
2) Hooked up 2nd GPU to a monitor and extended the desktop
3) Cuda drivers are installed
4) Installed F@H
5) Went to C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\ and copied this foler Folding@Home-gpu, and named it Folding@Home-gpu2
6) Created the shortcut from the .exe file from the progam files folder
7) Made the first one with
Target "C:\Program Files\Folding@home\Folding@home-gpu\Folding@home.exe" -gpu 0
8) Copied the shortcut and changed the paths to:
Target "C:\Program Files\Folding@home\Folding@home-gpu\Folding@home.exe" -gpu 1
9) Each shortcut worked and opened a new F@H client, and I changed the machine id for one of them from 2, to 3 (so that they had different id's)

10) Both download a WU... then do nothing.

Any ideas?
