Large volunteer desktop platforms are now available for several applications. This paper presents the work that we did to prepare the first phase of the Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy project to run on World Community Grid. The project was launched on December 19, 2006, and took 26 weeks to complete. We present performance evaluation of the overall execution and compare a volunteer grid with a dedicated one.
