When trying to use a app_config.xml like this Boinc refuses to start and gives me error 1202, something about ownership and permissions. Reinstalled Boinc as suggested but still not working.

<app_config>
   <app>
      <name>ATLAS</name>
      <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent>
      <fraction_done_exact/>
    </app>
</app_config>

You're better off asking this at the LHC ATLAS forums, since it's their application. It's very well possible you require a different set of sub-commands.

Edit, and read https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=5599. It's probably not going to work at all.

But the Boinc manager isn't even starting. Same if i put app_config.xml in for another project.

What OS?
Which version of BOINC?
Is the BOINC client running?

Problem solved.

The solution was to change owner of the app_config.xml file to user boinc_master.

Looks like a Mac version of the problem with gui and client talking to each other in Linux recently.
