Message 1901621 - Posted: 18 Nov 2017, 1:07:24 UTC - in response to Message 1901614.  

FYI - MS just pushed new NVidia driver 388.13 for Win 10. Apparently this time it does include OpenCL, unlike any previous pushes of NV drivers.
HOWEVER, any SoG 8.20 tasks fail with "postponed 30 seconds" message in task log, and will never start.

Even after a reboot?

I use 388.13 (64buit international) for Win 10 with no problem.

Did you DL the driver directly from NV site? Install with the clean instalation option?

Juan and Grant:

yes - always DL the driver directly from NV site
yes - always Install with the clean option?
yes - always Reboot after installs

After having donethis innumerable times on 6 crunchers .....

Thanks, it is indeed the International version I downloaded and installed.
But there is something else strange going on, at this point.
It looks as though it's now working properly on 1 of my Xeon boxes, but definitely doesn't work on the Core2Quad box. Still trying to determine why that is, and trying to make it fly on the second Xeon box as I try.

Downloaded fresh 388.13 from NVidia site, had same result. so perhaps not just missing OpenCL.
Fell back to 382.33 and am back in business.

I had to update from 384.94 in Windows 10 to 388.13 so the driver would recognize my new GTX 1070 Ti. Haven't had any issues with the 388.13 driver on that machine. My biggest concern today was that MS pushed the FCU at me. I had my doubts but the update went without any issues. And if MS put the Win10 version of 388.13 on my machine, I don't know how to tell if I still have my original manually installed 388.13 or a MS supplied version included in the update. My trepidation was relieved when I first ran my first instance of BOINC after the update was finished and BOINC found all my cards and OpenCL was initialized without any troubles. A big sigh of relief there. I know that I could have quickly stopped BOINC if it started to throw errors and reload the 388.13 drivers manually but fortunately I didn't have to.

Yeah, I dunno. Now I have 388.13 running OK on both Xeons, but no matter what I do I get run GPU work on the C2Q.
Anybody know how to trigger resends? All my work now shows abandoned, due to having to rebuild a credentials file.

If the tasks are marked as Abandoned for your machine, I don't think there is anything you can do. I use the ghost recovery protocol all the time when the work gets lost between SETI and here but that is a different case.

The December 2017 update corrupted one or more of the databases concerning system updates that my machine has become non-effective. The corruption(s) cannot be fixed via the 'Troubleshooter', and it can take from 1- 3 hrs. to recycle the machine. Even the system restore, prior to the initial update attempt did not work correctly as it recycled the machine @ 00:15 this morning, and at 02:30 it was still attempting to shutdown, but was up this morning when I signed op at 08:20.

I will be off-line for at least 24 hrs, as I attempt to do a complete clean re-install of the system.

After the last patch update Windows 10 does not recognize my EVO lector which I used to read my health card provided by the National Health Service. It cannot find the driver. All the rest seems to be Ok.

Ahhhhhhh, the joys of M$.

My tablet has not yet succumbed and it's the only device i own running 10. Both 8.1 and 7 seem stable after the latest round.

Regarding Windows 10 Creators Fall Update I just luv the new "controlled folder access" in Windows Defender. To quote "Apps determined by Microsoft as friendly are always allowed". So why if I turn controlled folder access on is Internet Explorer blocked from updating its config settings?

Probably because they're pushing for people to use Edge.
And because web sites and browsers are one of the main infection vectors attackers use by getting people to click on things they shouldn't.

Thank GOD, it's still hanging around as Win 10 will install both (backward compatability). I use PC Matic as my anit-virus software and when I go to their website I can't use some of the tools using Edge, so IE 11 comes in very handy. I also have a problem with my HP 6968 Officejet Pro printer not being able to print interent pages, so I use IE for that also.

I have divorced myself from as many M$ apps as possible. I prefer Open Office, Firefox and other software over anything the girls and boys in Redmond offer.

Amazed here at how much better FF 57 is over previous FF 56, and any version FF beats M$ browsers.
As for Open Office, it's ok, though Calc is pretty weak and clunky compared to Excel for power users. Half the stuff I used to do on Excel either can't be done or take twice the effort on Calc. Talking specifically about the setup and formatting tools, and their ease of use.

Yep!

My only M$ software is the OS: Win7 Pro 64bit. That's only because it's a pain in the you-know-what to try to get Windoze programs to run in Wine on Linux.

I swear by Firefox. Started using it when it first came out and haven't looked back. Oh, I have tried others: Opera, Chrome (hate it with a passion), that browser put out by Apple (cannot remember it's name), and when I tried Win10 I tried Edge. Back to Win7 and Firefox I went.
