In BOINC 7.0.42 you can use app_config.xml in stead of app_info.xml.
Set the Milkyway-project to No New Work (NNW), finish all your current Milkyway-tasks.
Stop BOINC.
Delete your app_info.xml (first backup a copy!) and create the file app_config.xml in the same directory with content:

<app_config>
	<app>
		<name>milkyway</name>
		<gpu_versions>
			<gpu_usage>0.5</gpu_usage>
			<cpu_usage>0.05</cpu_usage>
		</gpu_versions>
	</app>
</app_config>


Start BOINC.
This should allow crunching CPU-tasks if you have selected those in your Milkyway-preferences.

Personally I don't crunch Milkyway on the CPU. The GPU does it much more efficient, so i have not tested the above.

So please report back if the above app_config.xml allows the CPU-crunching. If not: ask some other person for the extra CPU-lines needed in the app_info.xml.

Edit: the complete app_info.xml for CPU-crunching is already in another thread: http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=3064&nowrap=true#56288

First set the project to No New Work (NNW).
When all Milkyway-work is finished: reset the Milkyway-project.
Stop BOINC.
Check if the project-directory (..\projects\milkyway.cs.rpi.edu_milkyway) is empty. If not: manually delete all files in that directory.
Close down your computer: shut down and power off.
Start your computer.
Start BOINC.
Allow new work for Milkyway.
If your N-Body CPU-tasks still end in error after 0 seconds: ask someone else for help in this thread :)
