NONE of my computers run Microsoft Windows of any version. They ALL run Ubuntu Linux 14.04 with all updates applied. ClimatePrediction is one of the FEW applications for BOINC that fails to run in BOINC 7.2.42, 7.3.15 and 7.4.8

7.2.42 on one computer ONLY has run climateprediction and only intermittently.

I will note that I see this exact same behavior and messages when running BOINC 7.0.28 under Ubuntu 12.04. Lots of messages in the terminal window where I typed ./run_manager to start BOINC. Trying to remove a child that doesn't believe that we are its parent. This is not a symptom of the crashes.

This has NOTHING to do with ClimatePrediction. I cannot run Climate Prediction in 64 bit Ubuntu, all tasks terminate with compute error. I am running Seti (CUDA), Milkyway (CPU and CUDA), Rosetta (CPU), and ABC@Home (CPU) successfully, and GPUGrid works some of the time.

Downloads from ClimatePrediction are difficult, only 1 of the wus has been successfully downloaded and it terminated after 12 seconds of execution.

Only by looking at the Task Results on ClimatePrediction or any other BOINC service web site will you be able to determine WHY your WUs failed to run.
