Hi,
I just started crunching rosetta WUs, but it doesn't work. BOINC downloads a WU, but then I get

02.11.2006 20:17:58|rosetta@home|Process creation failed: Der Prozess kann nicht auf die Datei zugreifen, da sie von einem anderen Prozess verwendet wird. (0x20)

Any ideas?

Martin.

Are you running with screensaver?

I'm to the point where I'm wondering how many RALPH@Home volunteers are running with there screensavers on. My system ran verions 5.16 to 5.25 perfectly. Then 5.3x hits and I have one out of three WU's failing.

I switched my screensaver to blank and I haven't had a single error yet.

Try switching your's off and see if the WU will start.

No... the screensaver is and was disabled. IMHO the screensaver is quite useless.

:(

Hard to tell as the description is in another language. I would suggest posting this on "Report Problems with Rosetta 5.36".

It means something like this:

The process cannot access the file, because it is used by another process

The message says that the programm can not open/use a file, which is already used by another process.

Seems I had this problem once. You don't happen to see two boinc icons on the bottom toolbar? I had two instances of BOINC launching at the same time when I had this happen. Sounds weird I know.

No, only boincmgr and boinc are running. But I'm running Einstein@home, too. Should I disable it and try running rosetta again?

Martin,

Try detaching from Rosetta first. Then shut down BOINC. Next restart BOINC and then reattach to Rosetta. Let us know.

Tim
