I just completed a task and decided to check how it was doing with my Wingman(as you do) it`s for about 63.99 credit when i noticed this

Outcome :- Validate Error

Above that is another entry which has a task id but no computer id,it says under server status Unsent.

Does this mean i got along time before i ever get credit for this work unit or that i`ll never get credit?

Thnks in advance for the answers

Validation error means no credits will be issued. If you unhide your computer maybe we can figure out why this happened. Unhiding your system reveal only a filtered view of your system info (it's not a security risk) and allows us to look at the results you returned.

Sorry i feel i didn`t explain the situation well enough,the Validte error wasn`t with me as i completed with success it was with the wingman. I realise that he/she won`t get credits for it but because the workunit is unsent i just wondered if it will be sent eventually and get credits for it.

sorry for the confusion

Eventually, the replacement task will be sent, so, yes, you are going to wait for a while (anything from 2 hours from now to a couple of months). Two hours if it is sent right now to a fast host that does it first...
