A friend would like to let run WUProp WUs in his BOINC.

He tested it - the CPU temp increased and later the PC was frozen.

It's a known problem that WUProp don't run on AMD CPUs?

What could be the problem that the WU don't run?

I run WuProp on a quite old AMD CPU with no problems and I'm sure there are plenty of WuProp users running with more current AMD CPU's.

WuProp uses VIRTUALLY NO CPU (runs as a backround/Non-Compute-Intensive [NCI] BOINC task) or RAM.

Something else is causing the problem.

Can you post a link to friend's problematic AMD host?

I have 4 AMD computers currently running WUProp and they all have no trouble doing so. As Dr Who Fan says this project uses virtually no CPU at all only a low number of seconds in a 6 hour run time.

What else is this friend running on their computer?
