Recently (about 2 December) my two systems running Windows XP (Professional x64) began having all results returned declared invalid. Two systems running Windows Server 2008 and one running Vista (all 64-bit) are having no problems. One of the affected systems is a dual Xeon 5410, the other a dual Xeon 5320. The unaffected systems are two dual Xeon 5520 systems, and one Core i7 (the Vista system).

I updated the drivers on one system (the 5410) from 190.38 to 195.62 -- no change. I then upgraded BOINC on that system from 6.6.36 to 6.10.18 -- still no change. On the other system, I tried resetting Milkyway -- still no luck.

Anybody have any ideas other than upgrading the OS on these systems?

You are not alone and there seems to be a big bug in the code.

A bug has appeared with the memory use by the app with the longer wu's. Previously each wu used about ~30mb of video RAM, but the new ones use more than 300MB. If you are running 2 uw's at once then change your settings to only run one and see if that helps.

Having the same problem. Every result I return has been marked as "Completed, marked invalid". Think I'm going to NNW for awhile until this is sorted out.

The bug should be fixed right now. To be sure, please reset MW via BOINC manager on your WinXP x86 and x64 machines or detach and reattach to get the new Ver. 0.24 application. That should do the trick. For most of us it did, see this thread over here:
