When BOINC came into existance, I began by running 2 projects, Rosetta and Einstein. About 2 years ago I decided just to run Einstein@home and detached Rosetta. When Einstein began having rather lengthy downtimes recently, I decided to put Rosetta back on 3 or 4 machines in case I ran out of work from Einstein. I was able to re-attach to Rosetta on machines running XP with no problem and D/L the necessary files, but on 2 win98 machines I received the message that I had attached to Rosetta and showed 1 file as being downloaded although no data was moving.

I seem to recall that there were a couple of files that needed to be removed before Rosetta would actually begin to install. I did a search for the word rosetta on drive C and discovered there were 25-30 files in other than the BOINC folder that contain "rosetta". I started just to delete all of them but thought there might be some file sharing and thought better of it.

Does anyone have any idea how I can get the files needed to run rosetta downloaded? It says I'm attached and even shows 1 file being downloaded, but as a said above, no data is moving. Thanks in advance.

A better place to ask about Rosetta related problems would be at the Rosetta Message boards . All Boinc related files are in the BOINC folder. The default install location is C:\\Program Files\\BOINC. The Rosetta data and software files will be in the sub-folder BOINC\\projects\\boinc.bakerlab.org_rosetta.
