I just noticed that the LHCb app detects my Boinc version incorrectly on a Windows 7 64 bit machine. It says version 7.7 detected but my actual version is 7.6.33.

Here's an example: https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=154072083

I don't think this affects anything but just to let you know.

Are you reading 'vboxwrapper' instead of VirtualBox version? Mine shows correctly on this.
EDIT, paste in the data as I couldn't find an LHCb app under your computers. Pasted below is an ATLAS app.

<core_client_version>7.8.2</core_client_version>

I haven't any finished LHCb tasks at the moment, but here is a clip of someone else's task. First line says 7.8.2 but the line below says Detected: BOINC Client v7.7.

<core_client_version>7.8.2</core_client_version>

Same for me.But for theory task.
task Theory_5946_1507460368.603779_0

What is amazing is the fact that this wu , reading the stderr_txt file ,seems to last during many days...
<core_client_version>7.8.2</core_client_version>

I think that this stderr_txt file has not been deleted after each wu processed.

In the log , we can see different kind of tasks :

I notice that the performance of my host is rather variable , from 4.53 to 7.89 ,with the dynamic benchmark , but i didn't change anything in my configuration.
Is it normal ?

BTW:The last task was a sherpa job with a endless looping (more than 12 hours)-(updating display...).

It's a misunderstanding of the coder. While the message talks about client it's actually BOINC API version that is used in vboxwrapper. It's already fixed but the code has not made it to the vboxwrapper used here.

@Philippe, or everyone really

BOINC 7.8.2 has a bug in cleaning slot directories. Upgrade to 7.8.3. Technically 7.8.3 is still in testing but I think it will be promoted to recommended status soon.

OK, good to know.
