Hi there, I just want to know if this is a bug or not?

I keep getting the following on one of my systems

<core_client_version>4.45</core_client_version>
<message>CreateProcess() failed - The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (0x20)
</message>

Below are two of the WU that gave the result.
Name: wjun1D_v6s4hvnom_mqx__12__64.317_59.327__6_8__6__85_1_sixvf_boinc15440_3

Exit Status: -185 (0xffffff47)

Name: wjun1D_v6s4hvnom_mqx__11__64.312_59.322__8_10__6__15_1_sixvf_boinc13740_0

Exit Status: -185 (0xffffff47)


It seems that all the results from my WinXP system keeps getting this. I am also running other boinc projects, and other than this (L@H) and E@H (which E@H is now checking) this two are the only ones keep getting error results.

I have also other systems running the same boinc projects, and they are all returning good results.

By the way, my WinXP system is an Intel 2.4Ghz HT with 1.3Gb of RAM and around 14GB of free space on the main hard disk.

I hope that there is a solution for this or at least an explanation why this happens. For now, i've disabled getting new WU for L@H.

Have you tried restarting BOINC?

It sounds like some permission issues on the files.

yup.. i've even restarted the whole computer and the results are still the same... All my other computers that are running boinc is doing ok (they all have the same projects running), they are getting Success results.

It's only the same WinXP system is giving the Client Error results for LHC@Home, all the other projects running on that WinXP machine are returning Success results. Except again for the Einstein@Home project, which for that one, i'm not the only one getting the error results according to the Forum Threads, a probable bug on the application using the latest Boinc client 4.45.

I am thinking that it might be the same for LHC@Home project.

I have one WinXP machine running LHC, SETI, and Einstein (it also used to run CPDN, but ran into software conflicts with Norton) on BOINC 4.45, and another running all four projects (though I'm completing all work on this machine before I try BOINC 4.72) on BOINC 4.45. The only problems I have had with LHC have been recently, but that's only because they ran out of work. *shrug* could be any combination of hardware/firmware/software issues.
