I'm having a problem on my Win2K Pro client. Frequently, a Milkyway WU seems to get stuck. My CPU is at 0%, the WU time isn't changing and nothing is going on. If I suspent all milkyway units, then BOINC goes onto someone else and takes off. Does MW have some sort of built in rest period?

... and the WU is shown as running in the BOINC Manager ?

This is a known problem with some older BOINC API and lib. If the application would be linked against the recent BOINC libs and API the problem would be fixed.

Which version of the api from which BOINC release version do you use ?

I have the stuck problem. The status shows "Running, high priority" with the cpu usage less than 5%.

It happens when the work unit completes - ie - progress reaches 100% and to completion drops to 0 seconds. At that time, completion resets to 00:01:10 and the progress resets to about 96%. Thereafter nothing changes and the cpu usage drops to less than 5%.

Sometimes, stopping and restarting the app works, but not always. Suspending and Resuming does not work.

I am running win2K pro with the latest Boinc build (v5.10.30). Any suggestions other than abort?
