Can't attach a new client. It says account not found. I had no problems under 4.45. I have attached several with no problems until last night. Any thoughts?

Can't attach a new client.


Using the password as set on the website? Or the account key? If you've set a password here, that's the one you need to use when attaching. Other than that, would need a lot more details to be able to help!

This is from Seti's news:
October 26, 2005
Version 5.x of the BOINC core client is the first to use a user determined password for authentication rather than an assigned account key. This created a problem for existing users who have not yet chosen a password. They could not connect. We have pre-populated password related fields in the database for these users and that should fix the problem. The pre-population was based on users' account key so security remains intact. All users who have not chosen a password are encouraged to go to the change password page to do so.


It stands to reason that other projects might have the same issue.

So I'd suggest you set your password manually using Rosetta's change password page first, and then try to attach. (assuming this situation is applicable to you :)
