TThrottle as a service
« on: August 19, 2011, 09:05:34 am »
Hi,

am I right, if there is no user logged in,  TThrottle has no chance of controlling BOINC? I got so many BOINC-clients running as a service and controlling their temp would be very desirable for me. What could I do?

Cheers,
Chris

I tried that, but no luck. Windows restricts any driver access, so services can't access a driver and can't read or control the temperature.
What I could do is move everything over to the driver, but driver programming is a lot more complicated. Very difficult to debug and any mistake is fatal and results in a BSOD.
BOINC itself still works as service but very limited. The default Windows installer installs it as user, because GPU access is impossible as a service.
