It used to be once per 14 days, or something like that for a new version message to show in the Event log. When I take the Help > Check for new version, I get 'No new version', but that's because I got 7.8.2 on the respective machine.

I reinstalled 7.8.1, and done Help->Check for new BOINC version. It answers "There is no new version of BOINC Manager available for download." which is false.
