1) Questions and Answers : Windows : \"core client is out of date\" (Message 4236)

I also checked the version number and it is 4.5 while mine is 4.3. Does that mean I should download now, or wait till the current unit finishes?

As a Beta Tester, I'd suggests these messages be made a little clearer before being given out to the general public. They resemble the sort of diagnostics I write for my own benefit when developing stuff on a mainframe.

I just got the following:
Message from server: No work available (your core client is out of date - please upgrade)

What is this about? I checked and the downloads have not changed recently.

Thanks, disabling the BOINC network did do the trick. It starts communicating again as soon as it can.

PS, this message board is a shade confusing. I accidentally re-posted Ingelside's answer, sorry.

I have Broadband, but I keep it switched off when I am not actually using it. (I know it would cost me nothing, but I worry about hackers who look for open links and also on-all-the-time machine that they can hijack for junk mailing.)

The software doesn\'t seem to like this, giving me a string of messages like \"Deferring Communication with project for 5 hours, 54 minutes, and 43 seconds\".

It just did this even though I am currently linked and it could have communicated.

I also wonder what it is communicating about, since I already have a work unit running, 9% complete.
