I recently downloaded SETI@home v7 for the Macintosh and installed it successfully (it said) on my 2006 Mac Pro running OS X 10.6.8. Since then, I hae only seen one task running at a time instead of the usual four. I am also seeing the following notices:

SETI@home: Notice from server
Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of AstroPulse v.6.

and

SETI@home: Notice from server
Your app_info.xml file doesn't have a usable version of SETI@home v.7.

I'm more than a little confused and any suggestions on how to get back to normal would be appreciated.

My guess is you downloaded and installed BOINC 7.0.65, which is different than SETI v7.

To get back to full crunching, you will need to remove the app_info.xml file that is in the /Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu, then go into the BOINC manager and select Seti@Home and click reset.

Also make certain that you have v7 enabled in your preferences.
