BT-1.30 new bugs?
« on: February 15, 2012, 10:11:59 pm »
Howdy again!

I have two problems at least.

1) No matter the settings, I can't ever right-click on a project or task and get "Properties".  BT-1.25 the same problem. Deleted all keys I could and all user data and fresh install 1.30 fixed.

2) While uninstalling/reinstalling and going between 1.25/1.30, there is some register key eFMer/BoincTasks/thetechnopath.com that can't be delected or permissions changed under any method I've tried...

3) BT-1.30 After the system has run a long time, I select Messages Tab and the lines jump around a LOT like it can't figure out where to start or stop... seems to flicker between correct and 1 page back... eventually it stops. Note: Actually looks like it is swapping data between two different buffers or something like that.

Any help with those items much appreciated.

:)

2) This isn't a BoincTasks entry, so something else is putting it there.....
Try logging in as administrator or start in safe mode.

3) BoincTasks settings messages tab -> "Keep Messages" fill in something higher by a factor of at least 10. 50000 or 100000.
Otherwise when you select the messages tab it will delete all excess messages and that can sometimes take a while.

My problem is a little different from Tex1954's on the properties dialog.  I can get the Properties dialogs to display, but on the Project Properties if a project has negative short/long debt, all I see is the - (minus) character but no numbers after it.

Running boinc client 6.12.43 on Windows XP, tried both BoincTasks 1.21 & 1.30.

Here is a screenshot of the Properties from both BT and BOINC Manager.  Project Properties

Safe mode, Run as admin, can't get rid of it for some reason... so maybe something corrupted and new windows install will fix.

I'll give the messages thing a try and see if that helps!

Thanks!
