At startup TThrottle should hide itself, maybe not the first time around.

It's all in the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle64 or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\TThrottle on a 32 bit machine.
Problably on settings, general and floatingdlg can be set on all machines.

You can use BoincTasks to remotely check TThrottle once it's running and allows a BoincTasks connection.

Thanks for quick answering!
By the way, both tha update dialog, as the temperature box and the main windows are opened when the user log in
Could you tell me where the configs are placed? I would like to try to copy the configuration files from one user to another. I intend to install Tthrottle in about 60 machines. Some of them have their own users with passwords I may not have and I dont want them having to configure Tthrottle by themselves (they wouldnt even know how to).

Hello there guys.
First things first. Nice job coding Ttthrotle.
1. Im trying to find a way to run Tthrotle without the need for the user to be logged in.

2. How can I configure the program once in a administrator account, then all other users wont have to config themselves?
I find very anoying that all the users of the machine will have to deal with de Update dialog, and even whorse, to deal with a mistery gray box that just wont go away for no reason.

3. My idea is to run boinc and tthrottle to avoid overheating and excessive noise. For that i would need to install tthrottle as admin, then all other users would run it in the background

4.Theres also the idea of running boinc in big networks ran by domain controllers. Most of the computers would stay in the logon dialog... How could I install Tthrottle so every user would be running boinc and tthrotle?
Windows doesn't allow TThrottle to run as a service, the rights of a program running as a service are rather restricted.
2) You can start TThrottle as administator and go to preference and check "Allow TThrottle to be opened by Admin only"
There shouldn't be a gray box, try removing the check at "Show temperature window" in preference.
3) At the moment TThrottle only runs as user.

Questions / Re: Accessing BOINCTasks outside the LAN

Yes, that is what they could do.  But I have 9 machines, and 8 of them run Ubuntu and are dedicated to BOINC, so they are taken over anyway.  There would not be much point to just changing the projects, though they could.

The other machine runs Windows, and I use it for other purposes than BOINC.  If I get worried about it, I could exclude that one from port forwarding.  It just runs one project, and I don't really need to change anything about it normally.

It is a trade-off, but it would be nice to be able to monitor and change projects myself, since on long trips there is usually something going wrong on some project that needs attention.

Even if they could catch the password in transmission (unlikely), all they could do is change your BOINC settings.  That is not a security risk, only a nuisance risk.
You would have total control, removing projects adding projects.
But who would be interested in doing, that's the question.
Adding a project that could take over you computer could be an issue.

Questions / Re: How to get through Windows Firewall

I found the problem. I initially had the 64bit version of BOINC installed. I had set up BOINC as an allowed app in the firewall. I was having issues with the 64bit version. It crashes on certain Intel low power processors. I had to install the 32bit version which worked fine. However, the firewall rule was pointing to the 64bit version under the Program Files directory instead of the 32bit version under the Program Files (x86) directory. Once I corrected this BoincTasks was able to access these computers.

Thanks

The Boinc client needs access to the local net to communicate with BoincTasks, so make sure BOINC client has all the rights it need on the local network.

Look for: Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewalll

I agree with Fred. Using a VPN would be far more secure. As he stated the communications is not encrypted, which probably includes the password.
