Good evening.

There is a problem when working with the BOINC client version 7.14.2 (x64) in 64-bit Windows XP. In some cases, while performing tasks, the "boinc.exe" application crashes with the error "memory cannot be read ...". The computer's RAM is working.
Is there any way to fix this error somehow?

(As I understand it, updating to a newer version of BOINC will not work, because the developers decided to stop supporting Windows XP...)

No, they stopped supporting 32bit Windows in newer versions. If yours is 64bit, you can upgrade to 7.16.7 without problems.
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!

However, installing a newer version of the application fails...

I apologize for the inaccurate information.
There was a single failure, now everything is in order...

Good luck.
