I have tried to run a few WUs recently, and each one upon startup will shoot up to 100%, hang, then give me "Computation Error" as the result. BOINC reports no errors under Messages; it only says that the computation is finished.

I am running 64-bit Vista, as well as the 64-bit version of BOINC 6.4.7. I'm putting this in "Wish list" because I'm not sure 64-bit is supported (as it isn't on many projects,) and if it isn't, I would like it to be.

I updated BOINC, and it seems to be working now. The screensaver hangs when it updates the progress, and the estimated completion times are way off, but it seems fine aside from that.

With vista x64 only problems I encountered were with the initial download of key project core files. Once I was able to get them and put into the folder its been smooth sailing as long as there has been work available. Though there is one peculiar thing I've noticed, both my desktop and laptop are running vista x64, my desktop is (generally) quite successful in getting workunits when they are available. I'll move over to the laptop and continually get the "no work from project" message. While my desktop has kept chugging away for days at a time there would be few and far between that my laptop would be able to grab any kind of work units.
