4:20:31 AM: Error: can't open file 'E:\BOINC\\RebootPending.txt' (error 2: the system cannot find the file specified.)

As indicated, the file doesn't exist. However, what does this mean? The aforementioned occurs from either every day to once per week or so. While it occurs indepentantly, it often is seen with the following entrained:

Is it (ab)normal to have a double slash in a path?

As indicated, the file doesn't exist. However, what does this mean? The aforementioned occurs from either every day to once per week or so.

It should occur every time you start BOINC (after an exit). As it will happen at the start of BOINC. It's the reboot-check for clean installations and upgrade from BOINC 5 and prior installations.

If the file exists, the system needs to be rebooted first (to allow for the limited accounts BOINC makes to be activated by Windows). As long as the file doesn't exist, ignore its non-existence and write that line into the stdoutgui.txt file.

Most of the lines written into this file can easily be ignored. As long as your BOINC Manager works, as long as it doesn't crash any time you look at it... there's plenty more obscure things being written into other log files for BOINC. They aren't of interest to you or me, unless you're a (partial) developer of (any part) of the program, who finds pleasure in debugging the messages.
