If you don’t already use an app_config.xml file (otherwise edit it), open Windows Explorer and navigate to the gpugrid projects folder in the boinc directory. On W7 by default it will be,

C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects\www.gpugrid.net\

Note this is a hidden directory (unless you changed that), is different for different operating systems and that this can be on a second drive determined during the installation of Boinc. Ref: http://boincfaq.mundayweb.com/index.php?view=376

Create a new text file in the GPUGrid project folder and enter the following configurations (or your own implementation):

<app_config>
<app>
<name>acemdbeta</name>
<max_concurrent>9999</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>1</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
<app>
<name>acemdlong</name>
<max_concurrent>9999</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
<app>
<name>acemdshort</name>
<max_concurrent>9999</max_concurrent>
<gpu_versions>
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
<cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage>
</gpu_versions>
</app>
</app_config>

Save As app_config.xml (make sure save as type is set to All Files).
Close the file.

In Boinc Manager (advanced view) select the Advanced tab and then read config files.

Notes:
It’s best to finish any running GPUGrid work, select no new work, close Boinc then create this file, open Boinc and allow new tasks for GPUGrid.
<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage> means the app uses half of the GPU
<cpu_usage>1.00</cpu_usage> tells the app to allocate a full CPU to the app
Known applications are: 'acemdbeta', 'acemdlong', 'acemdshort', 'android', 'cpumd'
