1) Message boards : BOINC Manager : My Wish List - part 3. (Message 36397)

I just saw a task from seti beta that was 284 hours and it had about 22 days left to complete the project in.

So I thought, well this might not finish if more projects keep on coming in so I stopped all projects from getting new tasks.

Then I realized that if I could choose to have work units that might not make it to the finish line prioritized as time left before deadline and time remaining became closer then I would feel more calm.

So I make this request primarily for those who like me worry that a long work project won't be done in time.

Thank you for your time.
2) Message boards : BOINC Manager : installing and connecting problems (Message 33974)

This isn't any paticualar server I'm trying to access (that I know the name of) it's just boinc trying to access localhost. I can't get far enough to connect it to any project.

Also I'm running windows 7 64 bit and boinc 6.10.58 64 bit.

Also I already cleaned up that "mess windows caused", what I'm saying is if the problem is going to be happening in a predictable way in an amount of cases then why don't you save us the trouble of going and sorting out the problem because I assure you that many people are coming up to that error and not bothering trying to fix it.

I have recently reinstalled boinc and now it wont connect to the server and thus is just sitting there doing nothing. Also it doesn't start up with windows but that might be because asus thought it would be a good idea to play hide and seek with the boot files.



I have recently faced the boinc.msi problem on multiple computers, wouldn't it be easier to just put the core function of the fix into the installer.

I just got onto the message board through google and tried to post something but couldn't find either a new post button or log in which thus I immediately that this board was obviously private or something. Luckily I knew better and went to the home screen to log in then made my way back here.
5) Message boards : Questions and problems : can't install on win7 (Message 33482)

It turns out that I hadn't read enough of the instructions for the Windows Install Clean Up tool and thought that just installing it was all that was needed to be done and before that it didn't say that it was compatible with windows 7.

Turns out I is compatible and I had to run it from the start menu.

PS it isn't CleanUp its Clean Up. I was looking for a program with one word for that.

I have recently uninstantiated boinc a month ago or so and then when I tried to reinstall it there was an error message saying I couldn't find the boinc msi.

Could somebody please tell me how to fix this.
I tried the cleanup tool but that is not for windows 7. I tried the install then uninstall an old version but the old version didn't work. (these options described in the help link on the boinc main page.
