Message 113624 - Posted: 15 Feb 2024, 14:27:33 UTC

After I installed new HD using the clone feature iI get the error msg
2/14/2024 9:36:24 AM | | Unrecognized tag in cc_config.xml: <options>
2/14/2024 9:36:24 AM | | Error in cc_config.xml options
2/14/2024 9:36:24 AM | | Missing end tag in cc_config.xml
2/14/2024 9:36:24 AM | | Starting BOINC client version 7.24.1 for windows_x86_64

It seems to boot and run OK, but the error annoys me.
Any help for the technically challenged user?

Somewhere in the <options > section of your cc_config.xml there is a missing </ word> tag.
These can a real pain to find.....
So, first, what operating system are you using? Knowing this will help people tell you where to find cc_config.xml
[edit to add ] -which version of Windows?


Once you've found the file you need to open it using a text editor (not an editor which tries to understand xml files), slowly work through it and make sure that each < word> has a matching < /word> - noting that there may be more than one (I've got that tee-shirt).

The answer is "it depends"
- are the projects you've selected running?
- are the right number of cores, amount of memory etc. being used?

This line tells us that at least part of cc_config.xml is correct
2/14/2024 9:36:25 AM | | Config: use all coprocessors


So, what's not working how you want it to?
If nothing then you can generally leave it alone until you have the time to work through the whole of a file that can be difficult to read and spot the error.

Copy the contents of your cc_config.xml file and parse it through the XML Validator here:

https://www.xmlvalidation.com/index.php

The validator will tell you the error and where the missing tag is.
