I got this work unit, and see that you processed it in under two minutes.

I am running Windows XP and the progress bar went to 100% after a few minutes but the work unit kept on processing! It is now up to 18 minutes! It is like a runaway train I guess! ;)

I will abort it after 20 minutes or so, so you can take a look at it. Maybe it is an issue with the Windows app.
Regards,
Bob P.

Last night, prior to me going to bed I suspended the result I was running.
It waited all of 1 minute for me to resume it and then apparently crashed out. That's also a way to get rid of it.

But eh, the error it crashed out with...
04-Oct-07 4:09:54|Milkyway@home|Reason: Unrecoverable error for result test_wu_38_2 (There are no child processes to wait for. (0x80) - exit code 128 (0x80))

That's usually one you get when your DirectX isn't up-to-date. Mine is, latest update of 9.0c. So I'll be guessing it's also got a different meaning. :-)

But at least the WU got a whole diversity of different errors on different machines and one even running it correctly. ;-)
