Welcome to the folding support forum.

Your NVS 4200M is based on a GT 520M. While it uses a Fermi GPU, it is at the very minimum level to potentially process WU's. However the current GPU projects have moved on to requiring mixed precision calculations, and I do not see any support for double precision listed for an NVS 4200M. So that may be the reason you are not getting any work.

Hardware configuration: Several dozen Core2duos and i3s at a Mental Health organization. About six i5 at home, including a GTX 1050ti GPU that does half the total points.

You may also have an Optimus driver, which uses a frugal Intel GPU normally and only uses the more power hungry Nvidia when needed. This work poorly with F@H as at startup it sees the Intel.

You may find a setting to always use the Nvidia, which may still not be powerful enough to complete a Work Unit.

It only appears to support OpenCL 1.1, and lacks double Precision Math, either of which could prevent even starting.

Is this a folding-at-home setting?

No it is in the Optimus control panel. You may or may not have one.
