Good evening.

Since a few weeks ago I'm trying to process jobs Astropulse v5, but all tasks completed in system error, and I happened on several occasions.

I wonder if it requires a special setup for this work or if the system requirements are very demanding.

Best regards.

Is your system overclocked? If so backing off a bit would be the first thing I would try. Astropulse WUs take far longer to complete so the chance for errors to creep in are proportionately higher.

you are receiving error code -202 on the bad WU's
this is what the BOOINC FAQ from mundayweb says about this error


ftok() only works if there's a file at the given location.

I'm certain someone will be right along to explain this error message
