Questions and Answers : Windows : Detaching
Detaching. I have no option to detach, remove is greyed out and right clicking on the projects yields nothing. After review of the FAQ I have come to the conclusion that this project wants to exclude windows users, there are over 11k of projects for Linux platforms and exactly 0 for windows. It has been like this for some time and I'm sure there are other boinc projects that will be glad to make use of my unused computing time. I have made use of the options to stop getting work but I'd like to get it off my computer. Anyone else know how to get this done?

If the option is greyed out, then you attached by means of a different Manager, perhaps BAM! If so then you MUST use the same manager to disconnect.

> Problem with incapabilities between 64 bit versions of Linux and the 32 bit nature of CPDN have caused many crashes and the need to reissue the same tasks over and over again.

Actually, until the 32b libs were installed the CPDN models wouldn't even download/start, so I'm not understanding how lack of the libs causes a "compute failure" (unless the request for work itself counts as a failure when 32b libs are missing
Unfortunately the system isn't clever enough. Lots of people have missing libs and still download work which then fails within about 6 seconds. Many of these people have adopted a, "set and forget" attitude to using BOINC and don't notice. Recently a user with 64 cores was identified as downloading a work unit a day for each core which then promptly failed. When identified, work is stopped for these boxes and an email sent out to the address associated with the account but it is taking a long time and I suspect more non working linux boxes may be getting added than are being identified!.

My Windows 10 is being updated every month, so I have to suspend all BOINC work on it. I have also to restart manually the CERN 2015 Challenge running on Virtual Box after every reboot.
