I have three exclusive applications set successfully in BOINC:
CivilisationVI.exe
TS3.exe
vlc.exe
(2 games and a video player).

I'm trying to add a 4th, dirt.exe (another game).
I can't see why, but it won't stay in the list. It goes in ok, but when I click ok, then go back into the list later, it's gone. Anything I can do or any logs I can share to help pinpoint the problem? All 4 are for GPU only.

You could go directly to the cc_config.xml file with an ASCII text editor and add/insert a new exclusive line, then save, making sure the file extension does not change, i.e. the file name remains exactly the same.

Since this being Windows, the file location would normally be c:\programdata\boinc

Thanks! That seems to have worked. Not sure why it took exception to that program.
