Since the 1.04 application apparently has a bug in it, imho it is probably best if you just abort the unit and wait until a fixed appl. is available.

I haven't successfully gotten any results from a windows machine yet, but hopefully that will change today!

I can't even get any work as BOINC can't download the scheduler list. Being deferred for 24 hours per retry. I'll let it try on its own for the next couple of days. :-)

I'll look into why you can't get the scheduler, I haven't seen a problem like that on any of my machines yet. I'll check the logs, maybe I'll find something there.

If it helps, I'm using BOINC 5.10.21 with Windows 2000.

I've already tried several resets and a couple of detaches/reattaches.
It'll say exactly the same as Viking69 reported, but at least now I defer for 1 minute at a time. ;-)

I just can't download the master file. Do we need a different port open than just plain 80?
