I would like to know where to send results. I think I need to let Einstein@Home know where to send results. every one of the work units shows "Client Error" as the result.

Client Error

MichaelPaull,

Unfortunately "client error" means your machine was unable to calculate the problem, so it has no results to send back to Einstein@Home.

I can't tell where the problem is right offhand, but here are a couple of things to check.
--Other folks running version 4.25 have found that this problem seems to correct itself if you turn the screensaver graphics off. See the Client Error thread under the "Problems and Bug Reports" section of the boards.

If that doesn't help, try these:
--Is your computer overclocked? I'm not sure how sensitive Einstein is to overclocking, CPDN is very sensitive to it. If so, you should run some programs to check the computer's calculations, Memtest86 comes highly recommended by serious crunchers.
--Is your computer running very hot or overheating? If you find your computer is overheating, you can "throttle back" BOINC's CPU usage using Threadmaster, which you can download from the BOINC add-on software page.

Good Luck!

Highly unlikely!! Do you think that 4.25 would be still around as the latest stable release if it errored out everybodys work units?

You can click on the result ID of each of your results in your list of work on the web page and get the error message(s) generated. These messages would also be in a file stderr.txt (or whatever it's called these days - I don't run 4.25) in your main BOINC folder. The messages would have also been displayed in the BOINC GUI.

From a few of the messages I looked at on the web page, my guess is that your box has some sort of hardware problem or stability issue which you should try to track down.

Cheers,
Gary.
