Beta Testing / Re: B.T. 1.73
« Last post by mmonnin on September 17, 2017, 11:55:07 pm »
I went back to 1.69. This version has regressed. I finished work on one of my extra clients on a remote computer for the Formula BOINC team competition so I told the client, through BT, No New Work. It still got new work. I abort it. It got another. I suspend the whole project and BT still got another. Projects sidebar had it as NNW and Suspended but there was a WUProp task running anyway. There is no other BM controlling that client besides BT. Back on 1.69 suspending the project properly suspended the task.

Oh refresh the active selection always goes back to the projects sidebar. I tried counting tasks I have by moving through the tasks with the arrow keys and each refresh it would move my active selection over to the projects and my arrow keys would move through that sidebar. It used to not do that.

I came to this site cause I am asking about BOINC TASKS. Your program, not BOINC MANAGER. BM is working fine. BOINC Task connection to it is not.
If the BoincManager is working BoincTasks should work as well.
In BoincTasks go to Show ->logging  and  check "Enable debug mode".
BoincTasks check the registry and tries to read the local password.
Logging  localhost get local password: (C:\ProgramData\BOINC\\gui_rpc_auth.cfg)
Next it should show Start BOINC client

Check settings->General
Check "Start BoincTasks at login"
Check "Start BOINC client when BoincTasks starts"
Delay starting BOINC client any number in seconds.

If the BOINC client is running and BoincTasks can't connect to the local machine, it's almost certainly a firewall problem, it is blocking BoincTasks.

1. That extended it to the bottom. Now I can't see the last project as there is no scroll bar haha.
2. Boinc Tasks. Does this application require the BOINC Data directory to be at C:\ProgramData\BOINC. During BM install I moved it to D:\ProgramData\BOINC since some of the VMs get quite large. I can't connect a new W10 client for some reason. Thought this might be the reason.

1)
Exit BoincTasks:
Next regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\eFMer\BoincTasks\window_position
Delete  the two keys:
_bar_project_cx_
_bar_project_cy_

2) There is a lot of info online like this http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=9633

1)The projects sidebar only goes about half way down the screen so there is a scroll bar. Also if All Projects is selected it always scrolls back to the top where All Projects is selected.
2) Does BT require the data directory to be in the default location?
1) Point your cursor to the top of the Project sidebar and click the left mouse and move it to the right. Now adjust the height and move it back to the left until it snaps in.
2) You mean the BOINC Data directory,  yes and no. While installing the BOINC client you should give the right location for the BOINC client to install.

I just upgraded from 1.69 to 1.73. The projects sidebar only goes about half way down the screen so there is a scroll bar. Also if All Projects is selected it always scrolls back to the top where All Projects is selected.

I upgraded as I couldn't get a new client to connect. Does BT require the data directory to be in the default location?

Fixed: Force GPU as detected, if an external GPU is set in the external tab.

Questions / Re: BOINCTasks reports task status different from BOINCManager
« Last post by fred on September 05, 2017, 07:16:10 am »
I've seen this quite frequently with BOINCTasks. On the Tasks page, the Status column can show either "Running" or "Running High P." When I go to BOINCManager on that machine, it shows "Running" when BOINCTasks is showing "Running High P." I think if you change your WU cache size in the BOINC profile for that machine, it can cause BOINCTasks to change the status for a task from running to running high p or vice versa. I would not expect there to be any difference.
Just checked it on my machine, I did have one high priority task running.
When I pause that task and resume the BOINC client immediately restarts that task.
That indicates it handles it as high priority, because it never resumes a task by aborting another, unless it's a high priority task.
So my guess; the manager doesn't show it even if it is high p.
