I had the stuck downloading issue too. On Windows x64. I updated my Bonic manager to 7.20.2 and it cleared up the downloading problem. I had been 7.16.11

I've had 1 system getting WU and 2 others with stalled downloads. The stalled downloads were on earlier versions of BOINC whereas the other system was a recent build. Now all updated to 7.20.2 and all now crunching!!!

Nice news ... glad to be able to assit in fighting Corona ...

By the way: Any chance that we will get GPU appications, too ?

It's hard to see my CPU struggle at 89°C while my NVIDIA RTX 2080super is on half-astronomic diet, munching away Milkywa@home workunits in 2'30" each while crunching Folding@home in parallel.


WCG has a working GPU app for Covid workunits... I'm running both WCG and Rosetta on my 3 crunchers
