Thanks, That did it. I wasn't sure for a while - just restarting the Manager was not enough. I had to restart the computer. Again, thanks

When I replaced my motherboard, I did not change the date right away. My statistics graphs have a 3 year blip in them. How do I change the date range on the graphs to get rid of the bad date?
Thanks
3) Message boards : Questions and problems : Task Core Limit (Message 41111)
Posted 11 Nov 2011 by Kirk
Post:
I suggest some future version have the ability to limit the number of cores a single task can use at once. When Milkyway@home puts out tasks that use all 8 of my CPUs, they prevent other tasks from running. A couple of days ago, they release a number of such tasks at once and everything else was left out in the cold. I don't blame MW for wanting to get their work done, but those of use running multiple projects might like more flexibility.
Thanks, Kirk
4) Message boards : Questions and problems : Restriction of multiple CPU requests (Message 41031)

I have one project that sometimes throws out WU's that use all of my 8 CPU's (except a fraction for the GPU). I have accepted this in the past, but tonight I got hit with 8 WU's configured this way and each projecting 4 hours of work to complete them. Is there a way to limit this one project to only grabbing 6 of the 8 so that I can complete other projects' WUs? All I can see is a way to restrict overall CPU usages between BOINC and non-BOINC work.
I'm suspending this pigs until I find a better way.
Thanks, Kirk
5) Message boards : Questions and problems : 6.12.34 install problem (Message 40125)

When I try to install the new version, it can not find the installation package BOINC.msi and lists C:\Windows\Downloaded Installations\{C2C0469C-8349-40A9-B0FC-AEF5169003D0}\ as a source to be browsed for. But no matter how many times I download it, it does not work. When I browse for it using explorer, it finds 2 of them, but when I use either, it says it is not the right package. I have rebooted with no change. Win7 on a Dell 8000. Help please. Thanks, Kirk Sorensen

I tried to uninstall what ever version I have ater a partial install (I started out with the 6.12.26 version and going to the .33) but the uninstaller also failed for the same reason.

I got a notice to update my BOINC sw so I did try. However, after several apparently successful downloads, it refused to accept the boinc.msi that was downloaded. I searched for others and they were not acceptable either.

When I try to replace 6.10.60 with 6.12.26 on my win-64 machine, I get an error that it can't find the boinc.msi. I have returned to .60
