At first, your tips worked very wel. Thanks.
But I have another strange thing on a 32 bit computer.

In the appinfo file stands this:

<app>
<name>milkyway_nbody</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>milkyway_nbody_0.07_windows_intelx86__sse2.exe</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>

<app_version>
<app_name>milkyway_nbody</app_name>
<version_num>7</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>milkyway_nbody_0.07_windows_intelx86__sse2.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

BOINC says: at startup,even after several reboots, incl. a complete powerdown:

15-9-2010 17:28:41||[error] No URL for file transfer of milkyway_nbody_0.07_windowsx86__sse2.exe

15-9-2010 17:28:41|Milkyway@home|[error] Can't initialize file transfer for milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86.exe

And keeps looking for an other file than is downloaded en written in the appinfo file.

How is this possible and more important: how can I resolve this problem?

Everytime BOINC tries to DL this app, I get an answer like this:

15-9-2010 0:00:57|Milkyway@home|Backing off 1 hr 25 min 24 sec on download of milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86_64_ss2.exe.

This is my appinfo:

<app_info>
<app>
<name>milkyway</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>astronomy_0.20_SSE3.exe</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>

<app_version>
<app_name>milkyway</app_name>
<version_num>19</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>astronomy_0.20_SSE3.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

<app_version>
<app_name>milkyway</app_name>
<version_num>20</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>astronomy_0.20_SSE3.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

<app>
<name>milkyway_nbody</name>
</app>
<file_info>
<name>milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86_64_SSE2.exe</name>
<executable/>
</file_info>

<app_version>
<app_name>milkyway_nbody</app_name>
<version_num>6</version_num>
<file_ref>
<file_name>milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86_64_SSE2.exe</file_name>
<main_program/>
</file_ref>
</app_version>

</app_info>

I have tried these versions, but all with the same result:

milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86_64.exe
milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86_64_sse2.exe
milkyway_nbody_0.06_windows_x86_64__sse2.exe

What can be the reason?

You can always use the No New Tasks (NNT) option in the BOINC Manager. :D

New signatures, also don't show up. :S
Maybe a setting in the new update for the community pages?

[edit]I guess this problem is solved, because my sig shows up now in this new post. Not in other post made after adding the sig.[/edit]
6) Message boards : Number crunching : Run time is zero (Message 35031)
Posted 2 Jan 2010 by RoosStar
Post:
When I remember it correct, the runtime is reported when you have BOINC 6.6.x or later as client!
So to see your runtime, update your client to i.e. 6.10.18,especiely when you run GPUtasks. :D

And yes, it is shown because of the new serverupdate
