Default Thinking of Joining GPU to 72

I recently purchased a GTX 750ti and I have a Dell computer with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz processor in it. However, I have windows 7 running on it and the software to run the GPU to 72 project is unix based. Is it possible for me to run it on windows 7? Thanks for the help.

We would very much appreciate your participation. And there is software for both Linux and Windows.

First, download and install mfaktc (see this subforum for lots of help on this).

Next, to automate the fetching and submission of results, install MISFIT. See this subforum for links to the software, and again, lots of help.

Lastly, create an account on GPU72 and Mersenne.org, and start getting assignments.

Please let us know if you have any questions. And welcome to the project!

I'm so confused on what software I need to run and how to run it. I downloaded misfitCULU, gpu72workfetch and mfaktc. I did the self test on mfactc and wrote a small .cmd file to run it and it works fine and it's running in a window. I tried using misfitCULU, but it doesn't display any processes running in the dialog and the work progress isn't showing anything. I put my userid in the mfaktc.ini file. I also put my user id and password in the GPU72Config.txt file and left the other stuff alone. I put all of this in the same directory, but I'm not sure that's correct. I have one graphics card GTX 750ti. I'd like to participate in the GPU to 72 project, but I really don't understand how to do that. Can someone please help me?
