Friends,

Now Im trying BoincMonitor a little and I got this error in the bottom line:

24 February 2011 - 22:39:34 Unable to open file: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\BOINC\client_state.xml
Ths file is present and looks OK to me. I can open the file when Im at the folder. May be there are some restriction that Im not aware of.

This may happen once in a while when BOINC locks the file.
Otherwise try running the Monitor once as administrator.

And check with "Regedit.exe" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Space Sciences Laboratory, U.C. Berkeley\BOINC Setup
The string DATADIR is the folder that should hold the client_state file.

Fred,

I think there is a problem with my inherited rights as an admin.
