SETI @home



Hi there I'm ROB your SETI @home Helper!!
Here are the Instructions for Setting Up SETI Commandline
with SETI Driver and SETI Spy



Close all SETI programs

1. Create new file folder in your C: drive using explorer. Let's call this new file folder "SSeti"
(For SUPER SETI Ha Ha Ha)

2. Connect To the Internet

3. Download SETI Driver into this folder (SSeti) and extract using WinZip into this folder (SSeti)

4. Download Commandline File name should be setiathome-3.03.i386-winnt-cmdline.exe
Download this into the SSeti folder

7. With explorer open SSeti file folder. Double Click SETI Driver (Blue Icon)

7.1 In the SETI Driver screen set the desired cache size
this is how many wu you would like to download at one time.
I usually keep a few days worth 10 to 15. To begin with let's set this to 1
(note: If you are running Windows 98ME uncheck Hide Processing)

7.2 Click the transmit button on the right hand side on the seti driver window.

7.3 This will open the cmdline client and connect you to seti.
Choose 1 for a new account.
OR
Choose 2 for an existing account.
Then enter in your email address.

7.4 It should now download a WU

7.5 Now Minimize the cmdline client screen to get it out of the way
(DO NOT CLOSE IT!! just Minimize it)

7.6 You should now be crunching using the cmdline
to make sure Goto the SETI Driver window
under Progress Monitor (Bottom of window) check Use Seti Driver.

Eliminating the Appliction Not Responding message when shutting down Windows 95, 98, and ME:

Download and unzip into your windows directory the file Default.zip to instruct Windows
to close the SETI CLIENT when exiting.
You may need to reboot after to activate this change.
Note this windows patch doesn't always work with Windows 98 original edition.
The file you are unzipping is called _Default.PIF and contains the information to tell Windows
to honor application close instructions.
It only impacts 16 bit (DOS) and 32 bit console applications.


If you have any problems just let us know and we'll be more than happy to help.
Every machine is a little different but the above has worked for us.
Thanks to Scott AKA INK4SALE
