Message 63190 - Posted: 7 Mar 2013 | 23:24:51 UTC

Greetings! I have been almost inactive from PG because I left my job (where I was crunching on my personal laptop) and my home computer can't download new WUs. I have a somewhat-new desktop HP with Windows 7 and it's connected to the internet via wifi. Does that make any difference? I can get Rosetta WUs just fine, so this is a cunundrum. I have tried many different settings, including computers, which/how many projects, extra time for extra WUs, etc. Thoughts anyone?

Certainly!

Go to that computer's host detail page and near the bottom of the page change the "Location" from "Work" to "---", and then click on "Update".

That should solve the problem.

(The problem was that no matter what settings you tried, you were changing the settings in the default "---" location, but the computer is assigned to the "work" location. Therefore, none of the settings you were changing affected this computer.)

Sorry, not working. I've changed both the computer's location to -- as well as the WU prefs page to have it affect --. I've also changed both entries to Home, since that is the location used for at least one of my other projects. I have it set to do equal time between three projects, with PG being one of them; PG has a bunch of time to make up, so I don't think that's an issue. Below is a bit of the event log; maybe that can help.

what subprojects have you selected?

Try unchecking "use NVIDIA GPU" on top of preferences page and try again.

I just tried unchecking both GPU options. No good. I have all subprojects selected except Proth LLR, Riesel Sieve, and both Generalized Fermats.

Yay, it worked! I think the server/computer needed to let the changes "settle" for a bit before updating my client. I also think the GPU aspects may have something to do with it; I ended up clearing the GPU-related settings from my computer's prefs in the program (rather than on the site, although I did it there as well).

Thanks everyone!
