I can't seem to get going again after an absence on the project.
Could I get some help please?

Message 56495 - Posted: 14 Dec 2012, 15:25:55 UTC

I ran into the same problem last night after setting up a computer that I had not used BOINC on for a while. I recently updated the operating system and then BOINC said that I needed to re-install. I tried several things after I did the install (update, reset, quit/restart...) but nothing seemed to work although I did get files to download (but no work units). I decided to let it go overnight and try again in the morning. I shut it down and when I restarted in the morning it downloaded the right files and began crunching. I haven't had it running long enough to see if it can send completed units back in, but I am not getting the "HTTP file not found" error. Maybe it will work today - it may have been a short term glitch.

Incidentally, I did not reach the point of doing a detach/reattach nor did I have to do an uninstall/re-install. Those were going to be my next steps.

OK - an update, for more information.
I'm running Boinc 7.0.28 on and old XP pro SP3 machine.
XP is up to date as of last Tuesday.
BOINC has been running famously on it for years, with my testing about 6 projects.
Is that of any help?

Keep pushing the update button until BOINC fetches the master file (or so). Should happen after every 12 failed scheduler requests. You will see it in the log, when BOINC decides to do that.

OK - will try that. Update a few times.

Thanks!

Wow - didn't have to wait long at all.
The first try was predictably the same.

The next try actually updated, and then promptly started downloading!

Thanks again!
