Well, I just stuffed up 104 units. My system tried to download them and failed.

Now I have a limit of 1 unit per day per CPU.

And I'm still trying to upload results from work done two days ago. At least when they finally get reported in my quota will increase.

Never surrender and never give up. In the darkest hour there is always hope.

Thanks Keith,
Tried it differently which worked for me. Instead of using the cc_config.xml approach:

1. Obtain file/foldername from the stuck workunit in the client_state.xml
2. visit the
3. download the correct file (locating by the sequence you described), overwriting the zero length one
4. "retry now"

Have 2 workunits crunching now :D [ Sadly my other machine has no downloads allocated, oh well, ones enough 'til they get back and kick those servers :D ]

Worked great. Thanks for the tip. Used it to get the rest of my results downloaded. on my two local systems and the 5.15 app (which wouldn't download either).

Little OT, but now that I got the 2nd CPU working in one of my old systems, is it better (under Windows) to set each boinc process to it's own CPU, or let them both utilize both CPUs?
