I am getting a Windows BOINC Event Log message |

Einstein@Home | Invalid global preferences supplied, please check https://einsteinathome.org/community/forum/19 on how to fix that.

Which sounds like a good lead, but that URL does not take a person to a single Forum posting and I have not been able to find the forum thread that match's the subject.

Can someone provide the full correct thread URL ?

 

Thank you

Try INVALID GLOBAL

Try INVALID GLOBAL PREFERENCES PROBLEM - start from the beginning: like many threads on many boards, it starts with the stated title but then wanders.

Ok for me a different resolution and perhaps the error message was a red herring.  I found in my Account Preferences for the Project an unused "Home" profile that dated back years ago when I ran separate Work and Home preferences.  Over the years Einstein had made changes to their profile rules and the way I had the "Home" profile was invalid.  I deleted the unused Home profile and the Event Log error on my BOINC client disappeared.

Thank you to those who helped
