All but the #13s (as expected) are uploading fine for me.

I have a six-core machine, so I just run five concurrent climate models (reserving one core for my general use).

C:\Program Files\BOINC and C:\Programdata\BOINC have always been excluded from virus scanning (Kaspersky). SETI never has this problem. I have to believe that there is some flaw in the Climate Models that is not handling a shutdown properly.

I did everything suggested. Did the "Shutdown connected client". I have always had "leave applications in memory" off. It doesn't make any difference. A model still errored as soon as I restarted BOINC.

I see messages like this in STDERR

<core_client_version>6.10.58</core_client_version>

It is extremely frustrating that you cannot shut down BOINC without causing a climate model to error. It does not always happen, but it happens too frequently.

I have tried suspending activity, waiting for a period of time and then exiting the BOINC process. I saw a thread about making a change in the registry and I also did that. It did not help.

I used to shut down BOINC in order to allow disk defragmentation to take place, but I find that simply suspending activity for an hour or so without exiting BOINC works about as well. Unfortunately, Windows and other program updates sometimes make a shutdown necessary. If it weren't for this problem, I would have almost no errored models.
