Questions / Re: Removing dead entry on projects tab
« Last post by keithhenry on September 23, 2022, 12:08:46 am »
Problem resolved. Just in case someone else has the problem, this is what is all was. Two machines involved, both Ubuntu boxes, no GUI, command line only. Had done the BOINCCMD --program_attach command from these boxes instead of through BOINC or BOINCTASKS. A fresh look resulted in another oh geez moment. There was a very obscure typo in the URL used. Detaching via the console using the same bad url fixed. Apparently cataract surgery only improves your vision, not the eye-brain coordination.

Ah, disabling AVG antivirus let it install.  Strange, since AVG has no record of blocking anything.  That program is a pest sometimes.

Can you tell me what temporary directory it's trying to use and I'll check what's going on.  I've not had problems installing any other software.
Help -> Update See "Folder to store download"
Otherwise try installing with the right mouse key "Run as Administrator"

I get the same error message, either downloading from the website in a browser, or using the update as you said.  Can you tell me what temporary directory it's trying to use and I'll check what's going on.  I've not had problems installing any other software.

Error 5: Access is denied.
I checked and it works just fine.
In BoincTasks go to Help -> Update  press Check.
Make sure Include Beta versions is checked
Should show 1.88 as a new Beta
Press Update.

You can try, select the project in the project tab.
Next click on update in the toolbar.
This might solve things.

Yes, I know that but it's unintuitive, if I've selected one computer I'm working on anyway, I expect the projects dialog to use that information :-P
I added it to my todo list.
