BOINC 6.12 with BOINC Manager 6.10

To use the new BOINC 6.12.xx with the old manager interface in Windows.
Use this at your own risk. Read all instructions BEFORE starting & if you think you might mess something up then STOP before you start.
Step 1) Backup all of the files in your BOINC folder to a safe location.
This is commonly C:\Program Files\BOINC\
I normally like to use Winrar & just compress everything so I have C:\Program files\BOINC.rar
Step 2) Install BOINC 6.12.xx over your current installation.
Step 3) Stop BOINC & restore boincmgr.exe & boinc.dll from the old version
For many system you can place the old boincmgr.exe & boinc.dll in your current folder & everything will be fine.
If so you are done
Step 4) If BOINC Manager does want to run you might need a few extra files & steps.
I found on a few older XP x86 systems I needed to do this.
You may also need the older version of Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest, msvcm80.dll, msvcp80.dll, msvcm80.dll, & sqlite3.dll.
Place these files in a seperate folder. I used BOINC\BM
A copy of your gui_rpc_auth.cfg will need to be place in this folder as well if you are using one.
Also I removed C:\Program Files\BOINC\boincmgr.exe so I would not run it by accident.
Step 5) Make a batch file to start everthing for you. I called mine boinc_go.bat but you can use whatever you like.
This is an example of the files I use.

   pushd "%programfiles%\BOINC"
   boinc.exe --detach
   start BM\boincmgr.exe /s
