I have 4 different intel machines crunching, all running boinc 7, all running windows 7 etc. I crunch for 23 different projects and the only project I have errors on is Rosetta and only on my i7 with 3 different Nvidea cards fitted.
The tasks do not even run on the i7, they error out after only a few seconds. I have not managed to successfully crunch a single unit on the i7. Every one fails almost instantly.
None of the other 22 projects have this issue.


Sorry edited to say that they have all units have ran full course but with the invalid error when completed. thinking of something else. Have upgraded to boinc 7.40 and will try a unit with that and see if it makes any difference.

The first this showed up for me was on the 19th, 5 days ago and still I have been granted no credit so not so sure. 67 units crunched now and not a single credit granted and still my allowance is 40 units/ core so I don't know. Would be nice to hear from the project or do I just go elsewhere?


For having been granted no credit, the RAC on your machine that has 67 WUs is higher than any of your other machines.

When you view the task list, it shows no credit granted. But when you look at the details of any given task, you see the credits granted by the nightly script for tasks that didn't end normally.


Yes, I see that now. Was wondering why my RAC was going up but every unit said no credit. Thanks for pointing that out, and to Mad Max as well and after re-reading my second post sorry if I sounded a little 'stroppy'.
However my WU allowance is now starting to drop, so wondering how long before it's down to 1/core and once it is and a cure for this bug is found i presume my WU allowance will start to increase again ?

I've just had 100% failure on all units too.
http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/results.php?hostid=1577285
Is there a cure for this ?
Will I be granted credit ?
Does this mean this machine can't be used on rosetta.
As i've just wasted 3 days crunching i'm not very happy about it. Have set no more work until I know whether or not i'm wasting my time
