I just got this message while trying to get new WU's:

SETI@home - 2004-07-21 13:59:59 - Message from server: To participate in this project, you must use major version 4 of the BOINC core client. Your core client is major version 3.

I never got a message before (E-mail or otherwise) suggesting I had to get another version. Is this the cause of my problems? If I uninstall this "version" will I lose credits or unprocessed WU's when upgrading? (the WU's are very hard to get!)

That message appeared to me also, although i have version 3.20 installed. After a while, boinc downloaded some WUs as it should and it kept working normally. i didn't see that message again

Do not unistall 3.19 or you will lose all WUWUs that are in the QUE to be crunched, just shut BOINC down and install 3.20 over it. Worked like a charm for me on both machines......

and now a commerical from our sponsor

Version 4 is in Alpha testing. You don't want it, as it is crash city. I wll let the developers know that there may be a problem.
