Due to a bug in .43/.44, the currently stable BOINC client has been rolled back to 6.10.18. The bug in question only affects volunteers using GPUs that do not have enough GPU RAM to execute their desired project applications. This bug is fixed in 6.10.46 or newer.

This is very odd. I saw and reported such a bug in v6.10.46: reverted to v6.10.45, which allowed the task to run: tried v6.10.47: that also prevented the task running: reverted to v6.10.45, and successfully completed the task.

So, for that limited experience, v6.10.46 and later were less reliable than v6.10.45

For the record: I had problems with a GPUGrid TONI_CAPBIND task (specifically: f237-TONI_CAPBIND99SB-51-100-RND2375_1) on an NVidia 9800GTX+ 512 MB GPU.

I haven't been able to reproduce the problem since, so it may just have been a weird transitional experience with a WU in progress: but I haven't seen any explanation to that effect on the alpha mailing list.

I am unable to re-install BOINC 6.10.18
I get an error message telling me the Instal script is too old and please install the latest version. The version number in the BOINC install script is so following instructions on the Instalshield site I installed version 10.1 of ISScript.msi
I still get the "script too old" message.
Any suggestions?
