Chris,

Have you tried switching the anti-virus off totally....?

That's allow you to download the EXE file. You can then move it to the correct folder, then re-start the AV program and set a rule for it to ignore that specific exe file.

Job done :)

regards
Tim

Hi Daniel,

I aborted the 2.90 tasks and I let the project download a new WU, having detached from the VDW project and now using the 123numbers URL.

As of now, the one (v3.00) task that was crunched has been returned as "inconclusive".

The WU info is here:

http://www.123numbers.org/workunit.php?wuid=452109

Looking at the other PC's that also crunched this same WU with the same end result, there's a Linux PC and a Quad Core Windows 7 64bit. So, I suspect that the WU's are currently either unstable or there's some other issue.

regards
Tim

Hi Daniel,

I've now crunched 14 WU's - 11 came up with Validation inconclusive (as did the other hosts that crunched these same WU's) and 3 with Invalid (though other hosts were OK).

Is this a WU issue, or is it down to specific hardware requirements that make these WU's tricky to crunch to a successful conclusion?

Having spent approx 100,000 Run time seconds and 55,000 CPU seconds on these 14 tasks, I'm not so keen on spending more time on further WU's if the same issues are going to arise.

edit: I see elsewhere on the forum that some members have issues with Win XP as the OS - what is the minimum requirement for Windows?

I did find this:

Van Der Waerden Numbers
Platform Version Created Average computing
Microsoft Windows (98 or later) running on an Intel x86-compatible CPU 290.00 16 Mar 2015, 20:17:15 UTC 244 GigaFLOPS
Linux running on an AMD x86_64 or Intel EM64T CPU 290.00 16 Mar 2015, 20:17:14 UTC 14 GigaFLOPS

So, Win XP should be OK?
regards
Tim

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the info - I'd already noticed 2 (now 3) WU's were awaiting validation.

No problem - I hadn't checked the work unit information and now I see that the quorum is set as 2 - and to be honest, many projects set the quorum at 1.

minimum quorum 2


So, I'll restart a few more WU's and see how it goes.

regards and thanks for kind reply - and good luck with the project,
Tim

Hi all,

Any one else finding that submitted work hasn't been validated?

I checked the server status last night and this morning and it seems to be stuck on the same figures.

So, what with the URL change and with (it seems) no credits being generated (for now), I'm suspending further crunching, so the admins can get it fixed.

regards
Tim
