hello

is there a PC or task error? Many units will end right after the start.

Some end in error after longer time.

The errors for those that I looked at are all: start_timer_thread(): CreateThread() failed, errno 0

This means that the processor ran out of resources, possibly stack memory.

Why is another matter.
Are you using the computer at the same time for something else?

Yes I use a PC for internet and games. But 4 CPDN jobs use up to 2GB RAM of my 16GB. And I have set to leave the tasks in memory when the calculation is paused. It was never a problem until now that the CPDN server was restored.

None of the games I play use more than 10GB and the past was not a problem even on an old PC with 4 GB of RAM.

The only times I have had this error, nothing else apart from cpdn has been running on this machine with 2GB/core memory. From personal (heap) memory one of those occasions was a batch where a lot of people were getting this error. Here however one batch is a little new for me to be able to check and the other batch no I looked at tasks from lots of people are getting the sementation error.

I think it would be worth in this case checking what else is running at the times these tasks fail to eliminate possible conflicts. What this may not tell you is whether the problem is caused by the CPDN task or the conflicting program misbehaving.

It's not main memory, it's stack memory, which stores pointer addresses.

And you may not have been running the wah2 models back then.

The only thing that I can suggest, until someone more knowledgeable comes along, is to create a cc_config.xml file to exclude all of the games that you play.

I think it's one per line, and the code that you need is <exclusive_app>filename.exe</exclusive_app>

The doc file is here
