Message 24543 - Posted: 4 Oct 2006, 22:25:25 UTC

I now have a 2-processor computer running 2 instances of CPDN, but each time it contacts \"base\" it suspends one of them, as I have Use only 1 processor on multi-processor machines.

I have tried to edit this, but each time I do so, the edit is rejected saying that I have something that is out of range or not alpha-numeric (it is highlighted in red)....except nothing is higlighted in red, and all the values are numeric and in range.

Please help as it\'s causing my machine to only run at 50% of its capability.

Additional - I can and have edited this change to my General preferences on other project sites - it is only here that it rejects the edit.

You only need to set general preferences on one project, so try setting it on one of the others, press update, and then hopefully it\'ll stick.

The project whose general preferences were modified most recently are the ones whose settings are used.

Thanks for that info..I\'ll give it a try.

My only concern is that CP is the only project on the duallie, so it\'ll keep using the settings from here when it updates

You could attach to one of the other projects as well, but click on the \'no more work\' button to prevent work units being downloaded.
