First, and probably the source of your problems is that both AstroPulse version 6 and MultiBeam version 7 have been superseded. The current version are AstroPulse version 7 and MultiBeam version 8.
The simplest solution is to remove your app_info.xml, this will cause BOINC to use the "stock" applications and get you running. Once you've started running some tasks you may consider running the optimised applications installer Richard Haselgrove has developed (have a look in one of the pinned threads in "Number Crunching" for the current link.

Thx rob smith for your fast answer.

Ok, you say I should delete "app_info.xml" file.

Where can I find this file? I did´nt found it in Boinc Prg. directory or in User directory.

What will I lose by it? (Only) seti@home settings, general settings of Boinc, calculation settings, credits, what exactly please?

Yours

The simplest solution is to remove your app_info.xml

... and then reset the project. Just removing the app_info.xml file from the C:/Programdata/BOINC/projects/setiathome.berkeley.edu/ directory won't cut it, as all the misinformation about the old applications is then still in the client_state.xml file.

Resetting the project will fix that.

It´s going to get a little bit complicate (to me) now, maybe.

>> .. and then reset the project

Reset? Sorry how?

And the old question. What will I lose?

Open BOINC Manager->(View->Advanced view->)Projects tab->select Seti@Home->Click Reset->Acknowledge. This will remove all old entries about files and applications from the client_state.xml file and the ..projects\setiathome.berkeley.edu\ directory.

It'll reset the state of Seti to as if you've just added it. It won't lose you any old credit, or anything like that. Just the old muck that you cannot use anymore to crunch with.
