double check that host is in

double check that host is in the venue "Home"
and double checked that Home venue accepts beta versions

gone to preferences of project and exchanged to NO test app.
updated project

in this first try got this server log:

exchanged computer venue to generic and updated project.
and again got: [version] beta test app versions not allowed in project prefs.

exchanged computer venue to home and updated project again.
and got: [version] beta test app versions not allowed in project prefs.

both venue generic and home had beta test versions as YES.

what should be next, downgrade the iGPU driver and doesn't match with o.s. version??

I cannot understand, if you're using 10.18.10.4425 and I got this:

.... driver version required max: 1018103906, supplied: 2019154531

it means that you're over 10.18.10.3906 and should not work as mine that driver versions are over the required in the server.

another thing that is making me crazy is why my venues are not accepted as run test app when both of them have this feature and already done exchange to no - save - update and backing to yes - save and update with no success at all.

Check the startup messages

Check the startup messages locally in your event log (stdoutdae.txt is the file where this is stored) to see what location your BOINC client thinks your host is assigned to.  If a recent startup says the same as what is shown on the server, then it would appear to be some sort of recent scheduler bug.  I'm pretty sure this has always worked OK in the past as many people have used it to get around the driver version restrictions for Intel GPU tasks.

You could also try setting all 4 locations to YES for test apps, just in case that works for some reason.  Other than that, I'm out of ideas.

There is a current outage of FGRPB1G tasks that is taking the attention of the staff so it might be a while before we hear from someone in the project about this.

 

Cheers,
Gary.

As the server log shows, that restriction is for the type of Intel GPU you have - HD Graphics 4600.  He may have something different which is not restricted in the same way.

just in case will you please send me the link from intel to download the proper version of driver to work with because with the intel numbering and the driver number doesn't match and I cannot dfind them for windows 10 x64. Cry

Ok, created fresh new venue,

Ok, created fresh new venue, "work" allowing beta app.

and updated computer to the new venue

result of last update:

[version] plan class ok
[version] beta test app versions not allowed in project prefs.
[version] Checking plan class 'opencl-intel_gpu-new'
[version] parsed project prefs setting 'gpu_util_brp': 1.000000

as you can see I don't know what to say about the computer and maybe something from server.

It's 5.30am here and I'm just starting a new day.  There is still an ongoing outage affecting FGRPB1G tasks so I imagine the Admins have their hands full at the moment.  They are unlikely to have time to check out a potential server-side bug that is preventing you from getting tasks through the 'test apps' route.  An acceptable driver version would seem to be the only option at the moment..

As I said in my initial reply, I have never tried to use an Intel GPU and really know nothing about them or where to source older versions of drivers.  I run Linux exclusively and (as far as I'm aware) there has never been a Linux driver that could be used.  There has been a long history of Intel GPUs with particular suspect drivers not being able to give 'accurate enough' answers to calculations for the results to meet the validation requirements when matched against results from other devices.  So with no driver available and suspect crunching performance, I've never had an interest in trying to use Intel GPUs.

There are a couple of threads around that have dealt with people's experiences with different driver versions, this thread being one of them.  My recollection is that in the early days, there were posts from people commenting on which particular driver versions seemed to work the best and where they got them from.  You could try trawling through the old posts looking for links that might still be viable.

Sorry I can't be of more help :-(.

 

Cheers,
Gary.

The other day I had a real

The other day I had a real big crash is D: drive and I lost all job of all projects so I have to exchange the warehouse folder to C:.

BOINC itself was recovering ease and at last I had all projects up & running.

Now again, I didn't touch anything and Einstein is not receiving jod for Intel GPU when previously without any exchange was receiving.

As you are using a driver that is newer (20.19.15.4963) than 10.18.10.3906 Einstein won't send work to Intel iGPUs unless "beta test apps" is allowed in the project prefs. The setting is called "Run test applications?"
