Message 1355133 - Posted: 10 Apr 2013, 0:14:36 UTC

I've been here since March 28 and i normally have my pc on most the time and i usually check on BOINC manager and these task started building up with a lot of invalids.I need help these issues please point me in the right direction. If there is anything else you need let me know?

Validation pending (405) · Validation inconclusive (491) · Valid (12) · Invalid (523) · Error (5)

I know what the errors are about and the Validation inconclusive are about too but what i cannot figure out is the invalids or how to fix/crunch them. IF i can get help solving this i can do the rest. The directory is \C:\ProgramData\BOINC\projects that is as much as i know about where to look.

Google x41zc downloads and use that instead, the Cuda42 variant is most suitable for a Fermi GPU.

It looks to me that your problem is that you are using old problem ridden V12 version of Lunatics that was quickly pulled due to the errors/invalid results that it produced.

Update to a later app version or return to using the standard app.

Cheers.

I did try to update to the lasted Lunatic program but was not able to find a site it was on and the main site for it was closed to new members for registering. No download to click on. So i just uninstalled it. even after doing that i also reinstalled BOINC manager in hopes of correcting the issues but they still persisted.
