I have just installed BOINC version 7.6.22 over my old 7.4.42 installation.

BOINC in itself works. It gets tasks from SETI and chews on them, no problem.

BoincMgr.exe, on the other hand, fails to start. I have looked around on my computer, and found a 35k crash dump in stderrgui.txt. That is the only thing I've found anywhere. There's no message on the display, nothing in windows event log, nothing else anywhere that I can find. But the crash dump is pretty specific.

So here's all the 'other' information as requested in the stickythread above:

- Problem occurs with BoincMgr 7.6.22. 64 bit version, running under Windows 7. Remove, re-download and reinstall of BOINC did not fix it.
- BOINC runs from a startup script under the 'Startup' folder of the start menu. Not as a service, and as stated above. There is no problem with BOINC, only with BoincMgr.exe
- Here's the host at SETI: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6801223

Should i just post the crash dump here, or is it better if I PM it to someone? Anyone?

The highligths i guess are in the beginning of the dump:

Message 66735 - Posted: 9 Jan 2016, 20:42:56 UTC - in response to Message 66734.  

I'm a little bit worried by that

"- BOINC runs from a startup script under the 'Startup' folder of the start menu."

That's very non-standard for current versions of BOINC: the 'official' way is for BOINC Manager to launch from the Registry at Windows startup (automatically but silently), snoop around to see if it's supposed to be running at logon, and go away again if it isn't.

How did you deploy the new version? Did you allow the Windows installer to do the whole job, or did you simply copy the executable files over the top of your previous, slightly unusual, installation?

If you copied the files, that might be your problem. Quite a lot of the supporting technology has been updated between those two versions, and at the very least you'd need to copy the full set of DLLs as well - they may need to be registered in the Windows registry too. (the installer would do that)

I'm typing this on a 64-bit Windows 7 computer, with both BOINC and the Manager running - so it can be done.

"- BOINC runs from a startup script under the 'Startup' folder of the start menu."

Well, I've been running it like that for some years, since I found a few command line options to boinc that were useful during the network troubles that we used to have at SETI.

The same setup runs without trouble on three other computers, as well as on the computer in question, so I doubt whether that has anything to do with BoincMgr not starting.

How did you deploy the new version?

I ran the installer several times. First without stopping BOINC (7.4.42). When that didn't work, I ran the installer after having stopped BOINC, and when that also didn't work, I reverted to 7.4.42 and ran that with no trouble for a couple of days. Then today, I stopped all BOINC processes, ran the installer to its very end, saw that BOINC started, downloaded SETI V8 tasks and ran them, is still running them and in an hour or so should start reporting them.

...over the top of your previous, slightly unusual, installation?

There's nothing unusual about the installation as such. The only thing I've done is I've gone in the BOINC options and removed the option for "should boincmgr run at windows startup" (I don't remember the exact wording in English).

If you copied the files, that might be your problem.

I didn't. I am a software engineer myself, and I have far too much respect for the science of dll registration and everything that goes with installation procedures to 'just copy stuff'.

I'm typing this on a 64-bit Windows 7 computer, with both BOINC and the Manager running - so it can be done.


Oh yes, I've got two of those running already, and one with Windows 10. I am quite optimistic that it can be done on this one too.

What I suspect most, is that this computer, having been my daily driver for some three years, will have a lot of junk dlls on it. One of those dlls probably maybe gets in the way of a more recent and clean dll.

What I also at the same time feel, is that such a situation, if that's what it is, should be better handled by the installation and / or boincmgr program.

The crash dump provides a complete list of loaded dlls. I can send the dump if anyone knows how to read it.

Oddbjørn,

Could you unzip the referenced file into the BOINC install directory? Go ahead and cause the crash again. The output in stderrgui.txt should now contain a human readable call stack.

Thanks in advance.

Message 66780 - Posted: 11 Jan 2016, 22:10:46 UTC

Now, I've taken a look in the source code, and this crash obviously has to do with column names, id's and sort orders. I am sure I have messed around with the columns in ways noone else would have thought of.

If anyone would like to debug this problem on my computer, I don't mind waiting for a fix. If, on the other hand, this is a low priority problem (which I guess it ought to be), I will at some point just remove the registry entries that hold the column info for the manager, and then rerun the installation program.

Please advise. Should I wait and debug, or just delete the registry entries and try again?

I didn't hear anything, so I went ahead and removed the Boinc Manager registry entries, then reran the installer, et voila - the program now runs as expected.

In conclusion; the crash was due to messed up registry entries, and if anyone wants to debug, those entries are available in this thread.

Now, I've taken a look in the source code, and this crash obviously has to do with column names, id's and sort orders. I am sure I have messed around with the columns in ways noone else would have thought of.

For testing purposes, can you detail what you did with your columns?

That's not so easy, since I have been using this computer for years, and I can't recall doing anything out of the ordinary.
I have been resizing columns a lot.
I have also accidentally clicked on column headings and had the task list sorted in not-wanted ways, ending up by having it sorted by project, of which there has only been one (SETI).
But all in all, I can't say that I've done anything extraordinary. The old manager (7.4.42 ) didn't have any problems...

I try to keep mine in default format - I'll dump my registry, and try to compare with yours, when I get a moment (bit busy with other testing just now)
