Hello,

i have running boinc 3.19 with s@h 3.08 on three computers, all using Windows XP Home Edition. Only one pc shows in the message pane the wrong time. It is 2 hours late. Where does this come from?

Your system clock, by all accounts. So are you sure your system clock is on time?
Aren't these messages from 2 hours before? It won't tell the time all the time.

Yes, all system clocks are correct.

On the one computer when i f. e. choose project update, my system clock shows 14:00 and in the message pane the new messages get a time of 12:00. This behavior is only on the one pc, the others work correct.

This is just a long shot and a wild guess, but is the system's Time Zone setting set right? .. I don't know if this affects BOINC and where it gets its time from at all but it's just a long shot, like I said..

regards

You could check your BIOS clock time against your Windows clock time by rebooting that machine. Is the BIOS clock on time?

Yes, even the bios clock and the system clock show the same time. I cannot get this fixed. The time zone in windows is set correct (= GMT + 1).
