Stanford recently updated the client installation guides and in many cases developed new guides.
Folding Clients - Types of clients covered:
- Uniprocessor (classic) clients (For PCs with a single-core processor)
- SMP client (MPICH) (original SMP client - 32 or 64 bit OS)
- SMP client (DEINO) (a newer version - 32 bit only, 64 bit not supported)
- GPU clients (For running on high-end Graphics Cards)
Choosing the Folding ClientIf you do not know which client to choose, probably the best approach is to go to the client download page here:
The first listed in the download page are recommended clients based information provided by your browser.
Other available clients are listed just below the recommended ones.
Suggestion: To obtain maximum productivity (PPD), consider a high performance client for computers with such capabilities as: dual-core, quad-core, GPU, etc. For example, computers with either dual-core or quad-core processors can run a version of the SMP client. A computer with a high-end GPU can run the GPU client.
If you already know that you wish to install a high-performance client (for example GPU client), go here:
Choosing an Installation GuideOnce a client type has been selected, then from the Folding Clients list (links above) choose an installation guide for client you wish to install.
Save, print, or have the the chosen guide open in a separate window, so that you can refer to it during the installation process.
Download and Install the Folding ClientGo back to the "Download page" that lists your preferred client:
Download the chosen client, choose either "Save" or "Run".
Save - Select a location on your hard drive to save/store for future installation
Run - Install immediately
Two items will be required in all cases:
