I think I found part of the issue some users were having not being able to get work. The feeder wasn't set to interleave workunits from multiple applications, so it got filled with WUs for the new application, which doesn't have all OS/architectures supported yet. That meant that the unsupported OS/architectures couldn't get workunits. It should be fixed now.

I've been having issues for a few hours now with MW@H. I'm running BOINC_64 6.10.43 and there's no WU's available for me. Earlier I was running a World Community Grid-branded Manager (on the BOINC Manager now) but I updated that since I had the 32-bit version and wanted to grab the 64-bit version that I have now. I've got a Radeon HD 3850 awaiting WU's (I only crunch MW@H on the GPU and WCG on the CPU--an E6300@4GHz)

I can't post on XS yet because I haven't been validated or whatever it's called. Based on this:
Well I managed to add 200MHz to my overclock (3.8 to 4.0 on the E6300). Upgraded BOINC to the 64-bit version (6.10.43), but now my GPU (Radeon HD 3850-256) isn't being identified.

Any way to get MilkyWay@home-GPU to work again? I tried updating from Catalyst 10.1 to 10.3 but that didn't work. I'm trying to switch back to 9.12 (iirc) now, partly because CCC really sucks. MW@h-GPU was working pretty well before, and I regularly got >18k BOINC ppd from it. 

I'd say that you didn't get the Protected application execution checkbox unchecked when you installed the newer version.
Right-click on the BOINC tray icon, choose Exit, check the "Stop running services..." checkbox, and then uninstall the BOINC client.
Reinstall the BOINC client, making sure you're installing it to the same location.
When you get to the Configuration dialog, click Advanced, and then uncheck the Protected Application execution box.
This should get your GPU working again.

Looks like the validator/work generator went down, should be fixed now.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but this is happening to me right now as well?

In my log, it just keeps repeating this:

And never gets any new tasks?

Before this, everything worked great, but as of approx 2 hours ago, it just stopped updating.

For reference, my userID is 122698 - just in case an admin or whoever is reading and might be able to help.

Im not getting a WU for GPU too. I've got only WU for CPU(nbody) - in preferences of the project I have only GPU marked.

UPDATE:

Somehow preferences was default. Settings were resetted?
But still no work for gpu:
