2. Once downloaded, Make a new Folder in your program file Folder and give it a unique name. Here you can see I have the Graphical Client to the Left and I made a folder for my second core on the right where im going to place the Folding Console Client.

7. Type in -config -local after the "C:\Program Files\Folding@HomeCPU2\FAH504-Console.exe" so that it reads like this: "C:\Program Files\Folding@HomeCPU2\FAH504-Console.exe" -config -local (please note, there are <SPACES> between the ..." <space> -config <SPACE> -local)

8. Now Click on Apply, then Click OK

Enter your team name: Nvyseal
Team Number: 51370
Launch it as a service: (this means it will automatically start up if yes is checked)
Ask before fetching

When you get to "CHANGE ADVANCED OPTIONS" answer "yes"

Continue on until you get to the last question

Machine ID: <-- here you need to give your client a special number 1-8. I used "3". The graphical Client defaults to "1" so dont use that if your going to run 1 Graphical Client and one Console client like i am.

10. Once you've answered all the questions, the console will begin to fetch its first WU, and give you a checkpoint every 30 minutes provided you left it at its default
