VMWare oddity
The last two WU's coming from my VMWare F@H seem to be going extremely slow. Like, an hour per percent. Anybody have any ideas on what may be causing it?
I seem to vaguely remember reading something about this new WU that was going to be for i7's and servers/workstations with 8+ cores. Is it possible I got one of those? There's no way I'll be able to keep up with a Q9400 @ 3.6.

I would delete and get another wu.:blarg: From what I can find the new trial wu's are #2681 & 2682.

Dunno, I remember a few days back I had a 3840 work unit and saw a massive kick to my PPD. I wouldn't delete the work unit, but I'd try reinitializing the folding process on it. See if it jarred it into cooperating.

Have you tried updating the WU database? I have seen really low PPD, and once you update the database, the numbers looked more in line.

Yep, tried it a couple times. I have a feeling that one of my settings are doing this.
This VMWare stuff is a bit confusing, I can't seem to find out how to delete this WU and get a new one, or really do anything else that's not on the config page.

Anybody want to help me out here? These WU's are impossible for me to complete on time, and I want to get rid of them. Problem is the VMWare client is a lot different than the straight up Windows one.
Any help on how to delete the WU would be appreciated:help:

I am not sure of how to delete the core. You could just delete the 'folding' folder altogether, and setup that particular client from scratch.

+1. This is what I've had to do before. I now have a "blank" vm folder that I can copy and adjust the settings. Although I'm rapidly losing my patience with F@H again. Might just GPU fold and Boinc with my CPU.

I wish I could fold GPU but ATI sucks for it, and constant EUE's make it useless.
I'll just delete the folder and make a new one once I find where I saved that .zip file to. Thanks for the stupidly easy suggestion :thumb:

That's what i do when i find it folding very slow or gets a work order that makes it ppd drop to under 1k for an instance
