Correct, although we have reduced the frequency of "hung" tasks on Win 7 64-bit, we haven't eliminated them completely. Mark, how often is this afflicting your machine?

Also, one of the new errors is occurring because our model is trying to allocate more memory than is allowed by our CCL application. Specifically, the error you will see is:

# Error message: value 16777216 is not of the expected type (UNSIGNED-BYTE 24).


We'll need to adjust the memory options of our application/model.


Looking at the tasks, looks like most of them worked ok. So compared to the flood of errors some other folks had, things have improved a lot :)

I've opened the queue on one of my machines for when there is work again. Assuming things flow thru, I'll open the queue on all.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on a few I7 systems. Some tasks run a minute or so and finish ok.

Several other tasks had hours of runtime, but about a minute of CPU time. They clogged up two machines of the three. Not uncommon was CPU time of 9 seconds but a run time of (forever), I aborted those.

I am running BOINC 6.10.60 on all machines. Is my BOINC client version too out of date for these tasks? I'm sticking on that version due to another project for the next ... year or so.

If there is any other info I can give let me know. I work so I cannot run this project anymore during the day but I can run some WU's at night when I can keep an eye on things.

My machines are fully Windows patched but otherwise pretty stock.

Hopefully we can figure out what is happening with these problem WU's :)

Hmm, on Windows 7 64-bit I had two that I just aborted, cpu time was less than 10 seconds but run time was 8 or 9 hours.

I've set NNT for now. Hopefully this is just a bump in the road :)
