The project primaboinca has finished and I want to detach this project.
But the button to detach a project is greyed out, even after I installed the actual BOINC version 7.16.7. on Win 7 Pro.
How can I get out of it ?
Please help.

The button is greyed out if you attached to the project via an Account Manager (BAM!, Science United, or similar).

Go back to the Account Manager website, and use the tools there to remove it.

"Go back to the Account Manager website..."
Hello, I attached the project via the BOINC manager. Where can I find the Account manager website you mean ?

It depends on how you try to remove the project. Did you select the project before trying the Remove button?
To check if you're using an account manager, look in the Tools menu if you have a Sync option there. It'll show which account manager to sync to if you're using an account manager. If there's no Sync option visible, you're not using an account manager.
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!
