gpugrid and einstein do not filll
<external_cpid></external_cpid>


as a result the client_state.xml file has "missing" cpids.


I suspect they have not interest in fixing this as the problem only shows up on gridcoin apps.

Is there any harm in editing that file and filling in the CPID value as I know what it is.

thanks for looking

Yes, just go ahead a fill in your external CPID in the client_state files. That is what I have always done. Use a text editor that does not add any hidden CR/LF characters.
