YES everyone!! Just crunch elsewhere and come back and check every few days, we think the Admin is out of town right now and can't fix the problem remotely. He will have it up and running again ASAP!!

After changing the account setup and profile rules and removing a million or so spam accounts and profiles, the database now fits in RAM which means the system will be responsive again. Between that and the bug fix in the work generator daemon, response should be much better and work should be available. If not, please let me know.

Loaded BOINC on new computer with Win10 and added Collatz and other projects which now have tasks running. Collatz has not yet sent WU even after changing preferences from just intel to include amd and updating. Is this a Win10 issue & do I need to install extra stuff such as openCL & visual studio stuff to get WU?

Did you load the AMD drivers from AMD.com and then restart the pc afterards? When I look at your pc I see this:
AMD Kalindi (1652MB) OpenCL: 2.00

but when I look at my pc I see this:
AMD AMD Radeon HD 6900 series (Cayman) (2048MB) driver: 1.4.1848 OpenCL: 1.02

Mine says "driver: 1.4.1848" while yours is missing that part.

To see whether your BOINC client is even requesting work from the server, check sched_op_debug from the Options, Event Log Options menu. Then the event log will show you exactly which type of work is being requested and the number of seconds being requested.

Thanks to anyone who helped get these going; I found 3 Collatz tasks already completed today & another in progress.

I just checked the sched_op_debug as Slicker recommended, just in case. Haven't tried any extra downloads from AMD as Mikey suggested since WUs started.

Driving me absolutely insane
Three other machines on the same account have absolutely no problem getting work...

Beats the hell outta me.

Hi Mikey,

Yeah I got it to download WU's.

Did a complete reinstall of the drivers after a DDU wipe, then a complete reinstall of Boinc after a RevoUninstaller wipe.

Reconnected and Voila' it's downloading WU's.

It was only an issue with Collatz, MooWrapper downloaded WU's fine.

Still not stable though but at least it's getting work.

I knew it had to be on my end, Blackhawk-2 is an identical setup hardware/software wise and it's working fine.

Thank you for looking.
