Howdy, all.

I have cp & seti running together via boinc on 2 intel boxes; one running XP & the other NT4. The XP machine is going fine, and according to the graphic has 2.04MB of Boinc s/w, 8.23GB Boinc free space, 6.01MB Seti & 84.14 MB of cp.
However, on the NT4 box it insists that I don\'t have enough disk space to d/l work for cp. This is despite the fact that it has 404.64 MB of Boinc free space, which is over 4* what the other box is using. Any ideas as to what is causing this problem or how to fix it? I\'ve set up my preferences to allow up to 100GB to be used up by Boinc, to leave no more than 0.001GB free space, to chew up 99.9% of disk space & virtual memory, so I don\'t see what else I can change...
Thanks in advance.

CPDN requires 600MB free space / active WU and leaves 200MB behind zipped in case it is needed later.

Hi Peter,

Unfortunately NT4 is not supported by the BOINC version of CPDN, as detailed in the technical requirements <a href="http://climateapps2.oucs.ox.ac.uk/cpdnboinc/tech_faq_boinc.php">here</a>.

Thanks. It would have been handy to get a more appropriate error message in this case :-)

well it is actually the appropriate message, the disk space is the first thing checked.
