then just reinstall over your current application.

I had this happen before. Only at one point the time to complete started to go back up. Happened with a total of four WU a couple of months ago, so I aborted them.

My 2 cents....This is just plain old stupid code. Whoever FUBAR'ed it go ahead and fix it.

Thankyou.

No OC'ing.

Did BU before, however unless it is done just after each change in crunching, upload, download, ready to report, etc. Gave client hissy fits that required detach and re-attach.

USER doing nothing but crunching with an always connected line.

All hardware is top notch and have my very own powerline to my house, let the neighbor make a cup of coffee or even warm it up in their Microwave.

I will just let the client run until their is some more work then it can start all over again.

Strange thing happened. My computer (Intel 3.2 HT Win XP SP2) crashed and rebooted for no reason that I know of. No warning, no message no virus or other malicious code.

To the point, I still have data in my project folder, however the GUI does not recognize it therefore I have no WU listed to crunch or the compleated ones to report under the work tab.

I re-installed v 4.13 but no joy.


Any Ideas??

Maybe if we did they could afford something better than a Dell. ;)

D) Firewall is whacked.

I had this problem on one of four boxes that were configured identically. Only disabling Norton on the failing box fixed the problem. The other three still have Norton running.

Go figure.

Well, I have the router co-operating again (for now) and all is going well so far.

I merged the P4 host that was created when I re-attached.

I am going to backup the XML file (along with the BOINC Directory) and then see if I can "merge" the two files using note pad. Could be interesting. Hopefully BOINC has a sense of humor and will let me get away with it. ;)

I am back up and running but at a cost.

I saved the projects folder then uninstalled 4.09. After reinstalling and attaching to the project I was able to connect and download another group of WU's which have been crunching and uploading automatically as it should be. That is the good news.

The bad news is when I moved the saved files (ready to reports and unfinished WU's) into the new projects folder, they were not recognized by the client.

At least the master page and master file fetch problem is solved and it was not my connection that was causing the mayhem.

I am glad that the finished WU's were uploaded, sorry for anyone that was waiting on the ready to reports.

I believe their had to be some kind of corruption in one of the client files that caused the problems. Too bad their was no way of editing the offender and making things right.

Thank you all once again. I hope this is the end of it and I will not have to post yet again.

@ Darrell

That is what is so annoying. The connection works fine to access the internet (I am using the P4 now), I can do a windows update, check E-mail, and use other programs that require access to the net.

It is the BOINC client (v 4.09) that is giving me fits.

It has firewall permission for outbound and inbound communications and it worked fine last night.

I have made no changes to the connection or the OS, nor have I installed any new software.

This is becoming a real head banger!

What if I copied all of the files from the BOINC folder Projects and uninstalled then reinstalled the client. After which I moved the Projects folder back to the "clean" install. Anybody think this would do the trick?

Thank you all again for your time and suggestions.

Well, I have a new problem now.

The hooking up each box to the aDSL modem worked fine then I started to have a problem with the P4 again.

2004-09-27 18:08:09 - May run out of work in 5.00 days; requesting more

2004-09-27 18:08:10 - Can't resolve hostname www.lhcathome.cern.ch (valid name, no data record of requested type)

LHC@home - 2004-09-27 18:08:10 - Couldn't read master page for LHC@home: error -113

LHC@home - 2004-09-27 18:08:10 - Master file fetch failed

LHC@home - 2004-09-27 18:08:10 - Deferring communication with project for 1 days, 1 hours, 17 minutes, and 31 seconds

and if I try to do a manual update on the Transfer Tab, it just ignores me and keeps on counting down to the next retry.

Now what? The other boxes hooked up to LHC work like a charm.
