Hi all,
since i ran two BOINC intances on my workstation (Windows 10 pro) BOINC is not able to download automatically new work units.
If i start the actualisation process by hand manually it works well and i get 600 WU´s on the main instance of BOINC.
The problem is that after appx. 3.5 hours all the jobs are done and i´m not sitting on my desk 24/7 to start the process again.

Here the BIONC notice

Yup it's a known 'problem' here for gpu tasks...your pc must not ask for new gpu tasks for 10 minutes before it can get new ones, it's a setting an old Admin made that the new one can't find. Easiest answer is to setup a zero resource share project to run when you are out of MilkyWay tasks and after running a few of the other projects tasks your computer will ask for MilkyWay tasks again after more than 10 minutes has elapsed.

Hi,
This is a well-known problem. I solved it by installing BIONC 7.15.0.
Have a look on my thread https://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=4631

This is not a official Bionc version u can download it on GITHUB only.
This version always downloads enough work units, it works for WINDOWS an Linux Unbuntu
