One of my systems (Home) does not get CPDN tasks. The other (Work) does. The one with no new work hasn't gotten work since 2018 in Windows 7 days. The system has been rebuilt with an updated CPU and memory - lots of capacity. Now running Win10 with BOINC/Virtualbox.
I'm trying to figure out why it only looks for tasks once a day and never gets any. It's share is set to 200. The rest of the projects are 100 or less. When I look at the CPDN project properties I find that the "scheduling priority" is -0.00. Can someone explain what this mean?
Also, any help in getting a fair share of new work would be appreciated.

I'm trying to figure out why it only looks for tasks once a day and never gets any.

That is because there aren't any. Check the Server status page. You just got a resend on the one machine.
Once a day is normal I suppose. Sometimes it is less, an hour or so, when tasks are available.

The "scheduling priority" is a negative number. 0.00 means that it is the highest priority project and should get the next one.
A more negative number (-0.10) means that it is lower priority project, and won't get one if the buffer is full (or run it) until it moves up the order. It is a strange system.
