I have six wah2 tasks on my machine that are not progressing over several days. I've checked my preferences and can find nothing wrong that would suspend them. The project is not suspended and I did force an update with no change.

This may require someone more familiar with Windows than myself to track down. Have you looked in task manager to see if they are using any cpu?

Batch 881 has been closed.
There's no point in running them.

Good idea on task manager. I went into Boinc manager and forced operation, over-riding the preferences. That worked and the tasks are running, so there must be something in my preferences that is inhibiting operation. I guess it would be best to reset and then re-introduce my preferences one by one.

Les, ok then I will kill them. Would there be something that keeps them from running that has nothing to do with my local settings...in other words, is the project telling my tasks not to run?

Also, where could I look to get that information you found?

The info is from a privileged area.
I did start a thread: batches closed
It's not very active.

I don't know about them not running.
I haven't used Windows since XP disappeared.
