I did everything exactly as described on the Beta Test Page to run the new ABP1 Beta app. However I got these errors:

This is a message from the server and not necessarily an error. I get similar messages from time to time. The server is quite fond of sending me some work and then informing me that to get more I will need to delete app_info.xml. I just wait a minute, update the project and if I'm due more work, the server will send some and usually with the same warning repeated. The server appears to be somewhat misconfigured but it's a relatively harmless thing.

It stopped with getting new taks last night and did not report the reday tasks automatically, but did a request for new work every 3 hours. When I looked at it this morning, I did a few manual updates with intervals of about 10 minutes with no luck of getting new work (the finished WU's where sent), therefore I posted this question.
The pc is now working for my work, but this afternoon I will upgrade to 6.10.13 and see what happens. I let you know.

Thanks all for the rapid response.

I get the same type of

I get the same type of message when Boinc asks for CUDA-work, I don't have a CUDA-app in my app_info so the server won't send any. (witch is the way I want it to be)
The problem is that the 6.6.xx series of Boinc won't show you what type of work it's asking for, just that it asks for work. To see what type of work it's asking for you need a cc_config.xml and enable

Nice 3.11 throughput

Nice 3.11 throughput improvement on my hosts compared to 3.09.

On my Q6600 WinXP Pro, running stock, ABP1 times came down from a 12-result average of 25,689 CPU seconds on 3.09 to an 8-result average of 23,564 on 3.11. So about 92% as much time required.

First WU returned and

First WU returned and validated; similar result. Typical 3.09 runs were low-to-mid 90k secs. This one took 83k (Old 1.8 GHz P4 WinXP).

I did an upgrade to 6.6.38 and started getting messages that it was requesting GPU work and none was available. CPU work was not being requested. This morning I upgraded to 6.10.13 and it finally requested GPU and CPU work. I got a bunch of S5R6 WUs, but no ABP1. :(

Note that I modified my app_info.xml file to allow S5R6 WUs. Better than nothing.

Seti Classic Final Total: 11446 WU.

Although the speedup is not

Although the speedup is not as impressive as we've seen on one of our test machines, this App isn't slower than 3.10 and apparently not causing trouble, so I made this the new "official" Windows App. Thanks for testing!

So, time to remove the app_info.xml file?

I did...very carefully though.

Drain your cache first.

After I drained my cache and reported all work I did a detach and attach for the project...probably not necessary, but clean anyway.

Yep, that's the recommended way. Although the app version is identical to the official one, the signature is not (there is no signature in the app_info.xml). If you just remove tha app_info.xml and restart the client, it will find the app binary doesn't match the signature, mark all results in progress as client error and start downloading the app again, this time with the correct signature.

What is the way do install

What is the way do install the 3.11 now.

Remove Wu's and just plump it in there?

Remove/Reinstall project and then copy the 3.11 files in there. ???

because i had errors with the new S5R6 wu's and that .XMl removal.

EDIT: just seeing that 3.11 beta isn't needed any more in the last post.

BERND PLz edit this BETA post that we must not download it and just use the standard as they are the same now.
