If one of my CPU tasks (this does not happen on GPU tasks) is suspended, it will give computation error when it starts again.
collatz_sieve_1.20_windows_intelx86.config and collatz_sieve_1.20_windows_x86_64.exe is empty.

(and why am I running both 32bit and 64bit versions?!)

Microsoft Windows 10
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU

Do you have the 64 Bit C Run-time also installed?

Yes, I do. Right now only 64bits WU are computing.

Also install the C Run-time for 32bit. I have both installed.

Correct. You need both.

or....

You can add "<no_alt_platform>1</no_alt_platform>" to your cc_config.xml. That tells the client that 32-bit apps are not allowed. The down side is that if you enable the no_alt_platform setting, any BOINC project that only has 32-bit apps will not run on your computer.

Even though the setting on the BOINC server is set to prefer 64-bit apps, the server will still send a mix of both 64 and 32-bit apps. It is supposed to only do that until it determines that the 64-bit app runs faster than the 32-bit version on your computer. If the 32-bit app keeps failing, it keeps trying to send another.
