hi,

I use boinc 6.10.58 on Win XP. Yesterday I got an new wu and it were 19% complete. I turned my pc off and went to sleep.

Now I started my pc and boinc today. The new were set up to 100% complete and I got credit and the next wu.

The old Units ever started again at the point I stopped it.

Is this an new bug?

Michael

Ver 1.35 on Win7-64 the new tasks seem to want to run for 90+ hours... I don't think this is correct. Pls advise...


BTW, my Mac's task seems ready to complete in about 12 hours as should be normal.

This is normal.
I made a modification in the new applications. The workunits will finish after they run 12 hours or 13 hours after the start of computing (even if the progress is less than 100%).
Credits are granted depending of the run time.

You should abort workunits.
Are the workunits progressing?
Before aborting the workunits, can you look the content of file stderr.txt? In the BOINC Manager, click on properties of workunit to see the directory of file.

Ok, I will keep watch on the tasks to see if they over-run 25 hours ... the last one I aborted had not exceeded that threshold ... thanks for the tip.
