It is strange that it can find the server and knows which files to download but won't download them. I know of one other person who has had problems uploading the work after it is completed.

That seems to imply that it is using the wrong IP or something. Have you stopped BOINC and restarted it? Have you tried eitehr rebooting or clearing the arp cache on your machine? On your router?

The following settings can be added to the cc_config.xml so that it will give
more information about why it thinks it can't download the files. It messages will get quite verbose, so you might want to just turn them for a little while and then post the results.

<cc_config>
<log_flags>
<file_xfer>1</file_xfer>
<file_xfer_debug>1</file_xfer_debug>
<http_xfer_debug>1</http_xfer_debug>
<http_debug>1</http_debug>
</log_flags>
</cc_config>

Hello,

I downloaded the optimised files
I stopped BOINC
I copied them in the programdata\boinc\[project]folder
I restarted BOINC

nothing seemd to happen so I went to bed (11pm)


03/06/2010 22:55:03 Collatz Conjecture Found app_info.xml; using anonymous platform
03/06/2010 22:55:03 Collatz Conjecture [error] No application found for task: windows_x86_64 200 sse; discarding
03/06/2010 22:55:03 Collatz Conjecture [error] No application found for task: windows_x86_64 200 sse; discarding
03/06/2010 22:55:03 Collatz Conjecture URL http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/; Computer ID 28886; resource share 100


now (6am), all the WU have been handled and result sent :p

I also saw that:

http://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/power_apps.php

At the present time, the optimized apps listed here are also the exact same as the stock applications which are downloaded automatically. Only the Linux CUDA and ATI applications need to be downloaded here as they are installed manually at present.


maybe it was my problem ?
