Hey there, I wonder if someone\'d be able to give me a bit of advice on how to track down what\'s causing the processing errors I\'ve been experiencing since christmas (maybe related to the replacement GPU fitted over the holidays?)

Every Rosetta work unit that I\'ve processed since is showing an outcome of \"client error\" on the Rosetta website, though they all appear to be completing ok at this end as far as I can see. I\'ve tried resetting the project to ensure there\'re no issues with previously downloaded items (to no effect) but have absolutely no idea where to look further to find the root of the problem. If I can\'t find a solution it\'s probably best if I suspend Rosetta processing until the exact issue is a little clearer. None of my other projects appear to be affected by the issue so it does appear to be Rosetta specific.

Any advice gratefully received, thanks :D

Read the first ten or so messages in the \"reached daily quota?\" thread, then install (older) NVIDIA driver 306.97. That fixed the problem for me.

If you continue to have problems, or have other problems with Rosetta (such as in the \"exited with zero status but no \'finished\' file\" thread), you may wish to consider reverting to BOINC 6.12.34 (x64). Let your current work units complete before doing that.

Sadly if the only solutions are rollbacks to 306 series GPU drivers (not recommended for my card) or an 18 month old version of BOINC that predates the recommended release by a year, I\'ll have to disable Rosetta until such time as it catches up with the current releases of drivers and BOINC.

Thanks for the help :)

I had to quit because of this as well.

I personally am using Boinc version 7.0.40 and am getting credits just fine, I have AMD gpu\'s units though and NOT Nvidia gpu\'s in the pc\'s here.

I have a similar problem but all my tasks are CPU: Opteron-290. There ia a gpu but I am using it for primegrid. Looking at \"messages\" in bointasks I see there are no output files.

I notice that there are both \".gz\" and \".zip\" and I assume that rosetta has its one unzip program and does not rely on win7 to work with gz and zip. I use 7z but there is no association for 7z as I didnt want an association. However, my other win7 system runs rosetta fine for cpu tasks and both are amd opteron systems.

Yes Rosetta does it all internally so it does NOT need your installed software to make it run. As for the answer to why it is not working, we have discussed that in the other thread. Short answer is it works just fine with AMD gpu\'s but Nvidia cards need to use the OLDER drivers.
