I downloaded Boinc 4.25 and tried to attach to Seti and Einstein. But, the Boinc Manager did nothing, after I told him the Account Key and the URL.

What could this be?

Can not attach to project

Hello and welcome Topi,

it's possible something with your proxy and/or firewall settings.

Any messages in the messages tab?

Nevertheless:
The (very good) manual for Boinc is the BOINC Powered Projects Documentation by Paul D. Buck and the FAQ therein.

A quick installation guide in this is here and for windows go here, for –ux go here afterwards.

If nothing happens, come back and ask ;)

Happy crunching!

Which version of BOINC are

Which version of BOINC are you using? If it is 4.25, what does it say at the right end of the status bar (bottom)?

I'll be posting a question in

I'll be posting a question in the bug reports but for the down and dirty just try shutting down the computer and, after a few seconds wait, turn it back on
Call this a reboot.

(a restart, by definition, should do the same but I'm unsure if the way a restart is communicated might hold over other things also)

a reboot allowed my computer to run E@H after attaching didn't visibly work

I restarted my computer

I restarted my computer and... it worked. But, he only subscribed to seti, and not to einstein. So, I subscribed to einstein again, and it worked to!

Thanks.

PS: I use Boin 4.25 on windows
