Hi there. I'm having problems getting new Theory tasks despite there being WUs available. Is there something missing from or erroneous in my app_config file? It is shown below.

<app_config>
<app>
<name>Theory</name>
<max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
</app>
<app_version>
<app_name>Theory</app_name>
<plan_class>vbox64_theory</plan_class>
<cmdline>--nthreads 1</cmdline>
</app_version>
</app_config>

Thanks.

On your prefs page:
- enable "Should LHC@home show your computers on its web site?"
- disable "Run native if available?"
- set "Max # of jobs for this project = No limit"
- set "Max # of CPUs for this project = No limit"



The options you set in the <app_version> section of your app_config.xml just repeat the default.
This should be avoided.
It would be save to completely remove app_config.xml.
If you want to keep the <max_concurrent> value your app_config.xml should be reduced to:
<app_config>
    <app>
        <name>Theory</name>
        <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
    </app>
</app_config>

No luck. I'll try some other things soon. Thanks, though.
