anyway to pause on installation?

sometimes the PC setup is not done perfectly so when FAH is installed, a WU is started only to see that... oof, it's folding on a single core as opposed to the intended GPU. Is there a way to have FAH immediately paused after installation so one can inspect the configs before trying to d/l a WU?

easier to manage physically by pulling the ethernet, but harder to do when setting up on the cloud.

thanks for any insight

In previous versions, when you first installed the client and started it, Web Control would wait for you to fill in a pop-up box with the details. If you closed it, it assumes that the client is configured and would start to fold. If you opened up FAHControl, it might wait for about 5 minutes before automatically start folding.

I have used the unplug LAN cable method as that's 100% effective but would be a challenge in cloud.

Maybe you can modify the host file as follows which would prevent any successful communication until everything is ready:
Code: Select all
#   127.0.0.1       assign1.foldingathome.org
#   127.0.0.1       assign2.foldingathome.org
#   127.0.0.1       assign3.foldingathome.org
#   127.0.0.1       assign4.foldingathome.org

tested it out, and looks like that'll work perfectly in the future, thanks!
