I have been trying to add this project to my BOINC Manager version 7.2.42 and I keep getting over time the following error message "Failed to Add Project, Please try again." I have tried using the project URL "https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/" which is the default URL in the BOINC manager and on the front page of this WEB site with no success. The computers OS are Windows 8.1 and I am not using an account manager such as BAM!. I had my account established with this project on 22 Mar 2013.

Any ideas or suggestions to add this project to my BOINC Manager? Thank you.

Make sure your have the C run-time installed first. If 64 Bit install both. The links are on the main page.

...And that turned out to the real problem. Apparently the BOINC manager was damaged and while BOINC manager was able to add other projects, it was not able to add Collatz. Based upon my prior experiences, when you are not able to upgrade the BOINC manager and you get the "1706" error code, you need to attempt to repair the client then upgrade to resolve the issue. When I repaired the old BOINC client then upgraded the BOINC client I was able to add Collatz.

Thank you for your help and assistance.
