I upgraded to BOINC 7.16.5. When I started the new version, I got this error message:

collatz: Notice from BOINC
Your settings do not allow fetching tasks for CPU. To fix this, you can change Project Preferences on the project's web site.

How am I supposed to be able to tell this project the send me GPU tasks only, but no CPU-only tasks?

Or does it no longer have any GPU tasks?

It has lots of gpu tasks but it can take a few days sometimes to get tasks, if this is a new pc did you read the home page and do this: "Windows applications require the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 . It is recommended to install both the x86 and x64 versions since BOINC may decide to run the 32-bit app if no 64-bit workunits are available when requesting work."

If you have already done that then some people have gotten gpu tasks after enabling cpu tasks, supposedly you can abort them once the gpu tasks start flowing.

The message from the Project is just reminding us that we could do cpu tasks here if we want too. I'm attached to a bunch of different Projects and have been getting it for awhile!!
