BOINC Manager - Windows version 7.8.2 (64) -

Column Sort : Does not sort.

Click on any column header on Projects and Tasks Tabs, and nothing happens. Default sort by Project name remains.

I guess we'll be seeing another update soon.

Thanks!

That's odd. I'm running a v7.9.0 built from master, with all current patches included - and column sort works as designed on both tabs. Now I have to delve into the registry again to reset my preferred 'native' sort order on those tabs :-D

I say it's odd, because so far as I know nobody else has previously reported this as a problem, and there are no recent patches - i.e. since mid-June, when the v7.8.x release code was separated from master - designed to address any difficulties in this area.

There is growing pressure to get another update ready soon, so we should test for that. Since this is a Manager-only query, I'll move the post into the dedicated message board area, and see if we can encourage others to test.

And your question has what to do with the topic you posted it in?
But let's say, for the convenience of everyone that we'll just allow any question to be dumped in any thread, no matter where on the forum, then we'd still need information, like:

- where are you trying to download from?
- with which browser?
- for which operating system?

And where are you downloading from? Work, home, behind a firewall? Can you download any other executables?

My internet explorer 11 has no problems downloading the BOINC installer (the one on the right on https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php). You do need to check that it's stating what you want to do in the lower bottom part of the browser, Run or Save.

Open Internet Explorer->Settings->Internet Options->Security->select Internet->Custom level...->scroll down to Downloads and make sure File Downloads is set to Enabled->OK. (Although that should give you a warning in IE if this is set to disabled and you try to download something.)

But that's why I asked, can you download any other executables?
Can you download BOINC when you use this link: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.8.3_windows_x86_64.exe? Or if you have 32bit Windows 7, this link https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.8.3_windows_intelx86.exe?

For testing purposes, can you download Firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/?

FireFox, Chrome, IE, Vivaldi download by default without notice i.e. the downloads do happen. Then there's a view somewhere to get the list of recent downloads, right click to then be offered to navigate or download. I've set all browser to pop up a screen to ask me where to download to.

Since you cannot download Firefox either, this isn't a problem with the BOINC web site but more of a problem with your Windows/Internet Explorer.
I'd say, try deleting your temporary internet files and try again. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/260897/how-to-delete-the-contents-of-the-temporary-internet-files-folder

That's where I was going next, but glad you caught on and hope it didn't do too much damage.
