Where is "Attach to Account Manager"?

I just installed BOINC using aptitude from the CLI - everything seemed to install fine and I started the program with no problems.

Looking at the instructions, it says to cancel the Wizard > switch to Advanced View > find "Attach to Account Manager" > and enter the name of the website www.charityengine.com

But, I can't get past the advanced view because I can't find anywhere the "Attach to Account Manager".

Has there been a change in instructions with a new release?

Can someone please walk me through getting started and adding a project

Thanks and appreciation for any assistance.

You should see an option under the Tools menu: "Use account manager". Then you can enter https://www.charityengine.com for the URL. You should then be asked for the email address and password you used when signing up here.

That should be all there is to it. Projects are attached for you automatically and may change over time, so you don't need to manage those.

(and the instructions have been updated on the wiki page now, thanks for catching that)!

Thank you for the information Tristan. My apology for the double post; when I first posted it seemed to be not doing anything (just spinning like it was blocked by an extension or other website issue) so I turned off all my extensions and tried again.
