Look better? "Mater", as in "Tow-Mater" is our home computer :-D

Here's what I did (uhg):
I did a search on "uninstall catalyst control center" and found a thread that recommended using the Uninstall Tool from http://www.crystalidea.com/. This allowed me to fully remove the damn ATI Catalyst <ahem> tool, including registry entries. Yes, yes, I created a system restore point and backed up my registry so unbunch yer knickers. Rebooted the computer. I then uninstalled BOINC and I also deleted ALL BOINC FOLDERS! This was necessary because my first attempt to uninstall and then reinstall still left me with the same problem. Okay, BOINC totally off my system. Reboot. Install the latest version recommended here http://boinc.berkeley.edu/download_all.php and made sure the PAE was NOT checked. Run BOINC automatically (checked the box) from the install window and clicked the Finish button. The manager came up and was blank. I added SETI and used my user account to do so [Note to developers, freakin' excellent idea, thanks for implementing that feature!!!]. I turned on everything (network, GPU, run always), Updated, and was up and running...YAHOO! I then added Milkyway. No issues. Every thing is running from where I left off. I tested the screen saver and that's fully functional as well. Sha-weet!

I hope this will help anyone else in the future. Thanks to all for your assistance. Again, LOL.

Hmmm, I think I may have celebrated too soon. Communication keeps being deferred. Milkyway won't get a schedule update for 24 hours. SETI is just a pending request. Even the screen saver says BOINC is not running. Grr. I also keep getting a pop-up that reads, "Communicating with BOINC client. Please wait..." with two buttons, one to Cancel and the other to Exit BOINC Manager. Clicking the Cancel button just has the pop-up display again and again and again and etc.

you can run in PAE but you won't get the ATI drivers to run BOINC in windows 7. you can still run that way in XP. Try reinstalling BOINC and not clicking the PAE.

Thanks for the suggestion! I loaded http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_6.12.43_windows_x86_64.exe and made sure PAE was NOT selected. I let the installer launch BOINC and it automatically connected to localhost and displayed my SETI and Milkyway projects.

WHEW!

Thanks to those who offered assistance, I appreciate it.

Open a command prompt (DOS box) and type "netstat"

Report what displays for port 31416

Okay, I'll answer this first since it's low-hanging fruit:

Stumbled across this at work while waiting for a query to run:
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=6846
I'll have to read up on it but I'm pretty sure it applies to me as I have an ATI card.

McAfee Personal Firewall

McAfee SiteAdvisor

In the Firewall section, 'Ports and System Services' sub-section, I can make an entry. Aside from the name and description fields are 'Local TCP/IP Ports' and also 'Local UDP Ports'. I appended port 31416 to the existing "Common Operating System Ports" of 5357. I also have an entry for "boinc" itself, with local port TCP/IP port 31416.

Are there any network/connection settings in the BOINC manager I should check while I'm at it?

Well crap, I goofed. The setting "Show processes from all users" wasn't selected on my Task Manager so I wasn't seeing everything running. I rebooted my system and I checked it and now I can see that 'boinc.exe' is, indeed, running. So is 'boincmgr.exe' (I have it open right now) and 'boinctray.exe'. There is also a BOINC service that is Running.

But other than that, it ain't werkin' like it used to :-(

I turned off the anti-virus AND firewall settings on my system, leaving it wide open, then tried running BOINC manager. Still having the same issue. I even went through the BOINC folder and ran every executable...still nuthin'.

I also added the port to one of the allowed entries. Nothing changed. No warnings are coming up as a virus or other bad thing. Seems as far as my anti-virus app. is concerned there is no issue. And even before this issue both apps. lived happily with each other so I have no reason right now to believe that the anti-virus app. is at issue. Famous last words, eh?

When it connects to localhost what should I see? What will happen?

BilBg, 6.10.60 install is giving me the same issue. I did perform a full uninstall and did reboot my computer after I installed 6.10.60.

I'm gonna put 6.12 back onto my machine.

...We are going to have to have a developer look at it unless you have the skills to install the development environment.


I guess we can try if all else fails but I'd prefer a pro look at it (URL I just posted above). By trade I'm a business intelligence developer/programmer/analyst and though I can build a wicked application in Microsoft Excel using VBA, and stumble through a PHP forum install through LINUX, I don't know if I'm geeky enough for that. But I've donated my body to science, I could do as well with my computer...

The above post with the output was when I executed BOINC.exe directly from the Windows File Manager (not Task Manager).

Yes, and while it's running, can BOINC manager connect to it?

It does not appear to. The BOINC.exe executes then stops.

I keep getting this connection failed message.

A little background:
I was successfully running BOINC for SETI@home and MilkyWay@home since June. Yesterday I got a virus and after 1/2 a day of working and trouble-shooting I got my system virus-free and working (McAfee is my anti-virus tool). My BOINC Manager kept giving me this error so I uninstalled all my BOINC stuff and reinstalled...still no joy :-(

Firewall is set up to allow all BOINC traffic. There are no entries in the Event log.

Help! Thank you,
