Thread: Running Genome@Home on a Windows 98 silently!

  1. #1

    Running Genome@Home on a Windows 98 silently!

    Ok, I've done it (sort of)! I got my dad's windows box to run Genome@Home more or less silently!

    Step One: Install GAH (duh).

    Step Two: Copy C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\CONAGENT.EXE to your Genome@Home directory (the one with ghclient.exe). Then go to the properties of this file (right click--> properties). Then go to the "Misc" tab, and uncheck "Warn if still active".

    Step Three: Get HIDEIT ( http://www.expocenter.com/hideit/ ), configure that to hide "FILTER" and "ghclient", and put a shortcut to the hideit exe in your startup group on the start menu.

    Step Four: make sure that both hideit and genome are starting at startup.

    Explanation:

    Step two: this will stop genome@home from telling you to close GAH before windows can be shut down.

    step three: this hides the gah client from the user

    Problems:

    - GAH will flash on the screen for a few seconds before HIDEIT can hide it.
    - when rebooting my computer, GAH will consistently say "not responding" and you have to kill the task.
    - HIDEIT puts an ugly icon in your system tray.

    So it's not perfect, but it's an improvement over just running it normally.

    At a site I frequent, a user has created a program called stealth. He has you edit some files and reboot. Then you have genome running silently. You can only see it in the end task menu.

    You'll have to register with the UBB. There is a distrbuted computing forum. They'll be able to help you get set up.

    - when rebooting my computer, GAH will consistently say "not responding" and you have to kill the task.
    Update: It only crashes if you try to reboot during the "creating the filtered rotamer library" or whatever that thing is. If it's actually crunching the gene is closes properly.

    To elimate having to end genome when shutting down:
    Browse to C:\Windows\System\Conagent.exe
    Right click it and choose the misc tab, Uncheck Warn if still active.

    I already said that.
