Sad I could not get one of my rigs to run at all after updating to Windows 10.

I've just realised that my 2 hosts that are failing are also Win10, although they do have less RAM than my Win7 PC that is successful, so memory may still be the issue.

A simpler app_config.xml is as follows:


No app name is needed, but note that it will limit the host to one (or whatever you specify) job per project. It won't work if there are sub-projects and you only want to limit one sub-project.

But it is a generic file that can be copied as is into any project folder without needing to make any changes.

Hi there

I am running Win7 64-bit on a Core i5-2300 with 4GB RAM.

On 2 occasions I have noticed an elapsed time of over 12 hours, and only "---" for remaining time for 4 WUs running simultaneously. Both times I stopped Boinc and restarted it again. After this the WUs started from 00:00 elapsed time and showed a remaining time of around 16:00 (didn't take note exactly). The first time the WUs went on to finish, the 2nd time was a few minutes ago and they seem to be progressing normally.

Any ideas? Anyone else seen this?

Edit: Unfortunately I didn't notice what the Progress percentage was.
