I've just built a machine from all the bits I had laying around doing nothing so decided that a second computer running just Boinc would be a good idea.

I have installed Boinc, added a project (SETI@home), clicked update hoping to get work to be done. Nothing happened. I have tried several times over the past few days changing preferences as I go along but still nothing happens. My main computer is still doing work and still updating OK. I have tried turning off my main computer and just running the second computer, but still I don't get any work to be done.

I don't have a home network set up at home, the two computers run individually and each has its own internet connection.

I would be most pleased if someone could tell me how do I get work for my second machine.

Many thanks.

It will help if you could post the first 30 or so lines of your event log on that PC (CTRL+Shift+E from advanced view)

Can you possibly first explain why (the reason) you Aborted so many tasks on your "main computer"?:

Do you still don't like "techie" answers?
(the JDWhale's post from a few years ago looks perfectly good, informative, friendly and easy to understand but it seems to me you didn't like it)

For the "second computer" we'll need the first 50-60 lines from the Event Log (Ctrl+Shift+E)

I managed to sort it out in the end and it was just down to preferences, a combination I hadn't tried before.

Thanks for the offer of help.
