For those wondering, I posted in the Release Notes, last line: For the moment, said goodbye and Godspeed to Rom Walton, who has left us.
Doesn't mean he's dead, I just wished him well on his journey away from BOINC.

I'll change it to say to work elsewhere. at the end. :)

Godspeed:
An expression of good wishes or good luck to a departing person or a person beginning a journey.

Installed "boinc_7.6.33_windows_x86_64.exe" over 7.6.2.2 installation.
During installation it asks to browse to find BOINC.exe
I helped it find it in C:\Users\MyUsername\AppData\Local\Temp\{59EDB6A3-BC03-4435-A5BB-57C41D0E10B7}\
it gave some error and quit. Then I couldn't even run the old version as it had deleted boincmgr.exe

I downloaded it again. Same problem. Ran it as Administrator, same problem. Gave up on updating it.
Reinstalled 7.6.22 and it works, not updating until this gets fixed.


System is
Windows 10 Pro x64 Build 14393.479
Core i7-4790K
16 GB DDR3
Geforce 970

Reinstalled 7.6.22 and it works

Which will have fixed the problem. The problem was that Windows forgot where it installed the program. This has been a long standing problem for quite some years, that can be fixed in various ways including your method of reinstalling the version you already had. Another option not yet in the FAQ and especially on Windows 10 is to use the Microsoft Fix-It Program: Follow these steps to automatically repair issues including corrupted registry keys that block you from installing or removing programs

I have recently installed 7.6.33 on a Win10 Pro machine and after running for a while get a message that my password is invalid. BOINC then shuts down the work units from the projects that I am running and deletes the data from the tasks page (doesn't delete the projects or any work done). Shutting down and restarting brings the tasks back. Have re-installed 7.6.22.

Similar problem here. Getting password is invalid pop-up error messages several times a day. BM 7.6.33x64 with V-Box. W10ProX64.
Temporary fix from Boinc Manager (advanced view), File Tab, Select Computer, & click on local host (or the name of your computer).
Noticed a couple of headless VM beta tasks (ALICE) had failed after the last blank-out. Nothing in the Windows log files.

ALPN Explained

What Is ALPN?

ALPN, or Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation, is a TLS extension that includes the protocol negotiation within the exchange of hello messages. ALPN is able to negotiate which protocol should be handled over a secure connection in a way that is more efficient and avoids additional round trips. The ever-growing in popularity HTTP/2 protocol, makes use of ALPN to further decrease website load times and encrypt connections faster.
