Topic 192986

Hello
I tried to add Einstein@home to projects running on BOINC 5.10.13 for Windows x64 but got such message:
platform 'windows_x86_64' not found.
Now server defers communication for 1 day.
Is some cure exists? (or it's not possible to run einstein on 64-bit BOINC now? )

windows_x86_64 not found error

This has been answered several times. Einstein BOINC server backend has not been upgraded as of yet, to allow you to get the 32 bit at under the 64 bit request. Einstein (as many other projects) do not have a 64 bit application.

You can run the 32 bit under the 64 bit BOINC, but you need to tell the machine to get the 32 bit instructions. Since I do not do this myself, I have not committed it to memory how to, but others can give you that info. I believe it's a simple app_info.xml file that does the job.

Good luck.

So maybe someone know what

So maybe someone know what app_info.xml is needed in this case?
I saw few times this question (about compatibility einstein with 64-bit boinc)on forums indeed but no positive answer still.
BTW, sched_request_einstein.phys.uwm.edu.xml contains line
"
windows_x86_64

windows_intelx86

"
It seems einstein servers doesnt aware about alt_platform tag existance....

Wrong syntax, use:
"
einstein_S5R2
417
windows_x86_64
"
insert the .. statement after each statement.

It's generated by BOINC client, it can't be wrong :) It's just not a app_info. These lines from sched_request_einstein.phys.uwm.edu.xml file.
But thanx for app_info example that could solve this problem.

I installed 4.30 beta that comes with app_info too.

It works!
