Hi All,

the title almost says it all. All my finished Astro Pulse working units get a computation error like this one: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=3670111744

It says there's an access violation. Is something wrong with the client or my machine? It's a little bit frustrating, that it computes a unit without credits. Usual Seti working units seem to work properly.

Anybody got an Idea ?

Thanks in advance.

Seems to be the famous 'crash after finish'

If I recall correctly this crash happens when the app say to BOINC 'I finished all Computing OK, now it's your turn' but BOINC for some reason kills the app (some bug in BOINC API)

I don't know if this is fixed in the latest 'Development version' of BOINC (7.4.12) (which I think is almost ready to be promoted to 'Recommended version')
