Windows 7 rc x64, I had the same problem with seti. Even after I disable sli, boinc only recognizes one cuda. On the seti forums, a man said to edit something in the files, but I didn't know how to access that. But please, I would like instructions as to how I could get boinc to see I have 2 cudas.

Did you do a stop and restart of the boinc-client?

Kind regards

Alain

After you try Alains suggestion it might help if you repeat what the guy over at seti said.. could save us quite some time.

That should only be neccessary if BOINC sees both but refuses to use one of them. Which is not the case here, as I understood.
