Hey guys,

Maybe this is your problem:

You might need to delete your app_info.xml-file. If this file is in your projects/einstein-directory it will prevent the new version to be downloaded.
After deletion, restart Boinc and the new WU's start coming :-)

Did you run S5R1 as a trial and install an app_inf.xml file in BOINC\\projects\\einstein.phys.uwm.edu. If you did this file needs to be deleted.
Or try an undate you might, depending on BOINC ver be in a very long back-off due to recent server probs.

I've just looked at the last result you returned. It was crunched with the standard windows application so you wont have an app_info.xml file to cause a problem. Normally you don't need to do anything as the standard new app is automatically downloaded when needed.

Because of the server problems just before the old run finished, it is possible that your client is in a one week backoff. Look on the projects tab of BOINC Manager. In the status column on the far right is there a counter on the EAH line counting down with maybe 100 hours or so still to go? If there is, just select the EAH line and then click the update button in the commands box at the left.

That's all you need to do to get it going again. Take a look on the messages tab and you will see the action.

Cheers,
Gary.

Hi Andy,
I haven't made any changes or been a part of a trial at all. I'm running BOINC 5.4.11 on WinXP. On the 18th work units stopped arriving. In my einstein directory I do see reference to the new work units dated the 16th.
eg, 16,220,160 h1_0383.0_S5R1 amongst others.
Also I see no reference to "app_info.xml-file" in my einstein project directory.

Any ideas?

Hi Gary, Under the status

Message 59552 in response to message 59550

Hi Gary,

Under the status column it is blank and when I highlight the E@H line and click the update button in counts down 60secs and nothing happens. I've got seti@home running with no dramas so I'm guessing the BOINC client isn't falling over.

Hi Sean,

If it counts down 60 seconds then contact with the server occurred and it has done something :). We need to know what it has done and that will be contained in the last few lines of messages under the messages tab. You should be able to see when you clicked "Update" and the messages that came back after that. We need you to cut and paste those relevant messages in a new post here for us to look at.

Thanks.

EDIT: OK, I can now see the messages, thanks. BOINC is not allowing EAH to get new work, probably because it thinks that EAH has had too much time recently and that your other projects are more deserving. Please use an editor like notepad to examine your "client_state.xml" file. You don't have to stop anything as long as you make no changes and exit without saving. Do a search for a variable called "long_term_debt" (there will be one for each project) and tell us what the values are.

Cheers,
Gary.

Or use BOINCDV (debt viewer)

Or use BOINCDV (debt viewer) which will show you the short term and long term debts without needing to edit the client_state.xml file. Windows only this program.
