Then use ^C and select the option to "Complete and report" option. That will complete the current test, then shut down the client after the test result is reported to the server.

My bad. I guess there is no option to complete the current workunits, report them, then shutdown. I'll have to add that.

Haha, well that explains why I was not able to get it to work!
Thank you for clearing things up!

Hi Bio1ogics!

Unfortunately, there is no way to get the PRPclients to minimize to systray as they are command windows.

The closest thing I can think of is using HIDEDOS.EXE (http://community.landesk.com/support...65/HideDos.zip) to hide the windows entirely. I have not tested it myself.

Two other options that I've used myself are runh.exe (google for it), which runs an application in the background (which presumably is what hidedos.exe does as well), and hideit.exe (I don't remember where I got it but I posted it to the forum a while back in response to a similar query), which allows one to selectively hide and unhide windows.

A third option, my personal favorite, is to install Microsoft's Virtual Desktop Manager PowerToy (can be found here), which gives you 4 "virtual desktops" à la Linux, each with its own set of windows that don't show up on the others. What I do is put all my prime-search stuff on desktop #2, and do my work on desktop #1. If I want to check on the prime-search stuff, all I have to do is switch to desktop #2 and boom, it's right there. This application can also be useful for organizing other types of windows as well--say, if I want to leave one window open so I can refer to it but without it clogging up my desktop.

 2009-10-14, 18:38 #52 Bio1ogics   Oct 2009 310 Posts Thanks, both opyrt and mdettweiler for your replies. I was hoping a command line parameter would do the trick, but it looks like i have to wait for that feature (hint hint). Another Q: will the old client be completely useless in a while? I rather liked it. Because, to be honest, the new client so far is definitely not 'significantly faster'.

I won't make any changes to "hide the client". It will be up to others to find tools to do that for them. I guess I'm wary of a few projects/applications that have been black-listed due to users setting them up to run "hidden" from other users.

The 2.3 client will be good for a while. The new client isn't supposed to be faster. It is just supposed to be more stable than the previous client.

Err, ltd in the startpost

 As the client is faster then the old llrnet client I would suggest that everybody slowly moves over to the new prpnet setup.
Anyways, would it be possible to use the old client, but pointing to www.psp-project.de:7100 instead of the old setting in lrr-clientconfig.txt ?
( which is in mine:
server = "pspnet.no-ip.info"
port = 12984
)

The new client (as opposed to LLRNet) is much faster as it is based on a significantly newer version of the LLR software. I did some quick tests and saw as much as a 20% increase in speed on some tests.
