I've recently started getting this error on every LHC WU. Here's a sample from my stderr log:

I'm running Boinc 4.13 on Win98. Have I messed up something?

@Davin,

First, I don't know what an 'Output file error: -1' is, but how is the free space on your hard drive? Have you got enough?

Cheers,

Stephen

Yep, quite a bit (750Mb+). But it has now quit doing that.

After using up my entire daily quota of files with that problem, the next day it downloaded new WUs and began processing them without difficulty. So I'm assuming that someone changed something on the server side that fixed it. (If not, maybe I should be worried about a recurrance??)

Thanks for the reply!
