Hi
I have upgraded my boinc engine.
Unfortunately the new version did not resume the running task of the older version
How come ?
Moreover it created a new computer id. But when I asked to merge the 2 identical named computer it says there is no other computer to merge with ...
details says incompatible cpu
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz
vs
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @ 2.20GHz [Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7]
Actually same computer, only Boinc vesion changed

Any help to resume the running tasks from the old version ?
Thanks

Having had a quick check of your computers I assume you mean these two

The problem may be that the newer one 8371414 has a GPU whereas the other did not.

You also were using a fairly old version of Boinc 5.4.9 which may be why it saw the operating system as "Longhorn" and the "newer" machine reports Windows 10.

It looks like you will have to wait for the tasks on computer 8315208 to time out (on the 22nd of December the last 1 will do that) and then be validated before before you will be able to attempt a merge anyway.

Cheers.

Did you use a different folder location for your BOINC data folder on the old version?

It sounds like it just did use the old folder.

BOINC 5.x stored everything in the same folder. BOINC 6.x and later separated the Program folder from the data folder. When you upgraded from 5 to 7, it didn't migrate the data folder to the new location - and there was no data in the new location - so it installed fresh as if no previous BOINC were installed. As Bernie pointed out, the hardware and software isn't similar enough to merge.
