Hello,

I received notice of 7.14.2 availability as a WCG release, not a BOINC release. Why the change of ownership (I assume in name only?)?

Regards,

Donald Vinton

It's an additional offering, not a replacement.

WCG now have their own wrapping paper for delivery, but it's the same client underneath.

Good luck. You could try selecting a new screen saver in your preferences. It might have been left set to none after BOINC was uninstalled.

I've checked those things. I find left-over stuff in my registry. I'm hoping for some support form the Authors who have left me with this mess.

See this FAQ. The groups are only made when BOINC was installed as a service.
