1) I have a new message that popped up when I rebooted ( I have not rebooted for about 1 week). It says:


SETIWatch
Component FLSHTRAY.OCX or one of it's dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.


It has a large red "X" in front of the message, and an "okay" box on the lower right.

Sorry, I don't know how to correctly display an image from my computer to the web without having an URL for a website.

I don't know what it is or what it's about, nor when it may have first appeared. And I don't know what I did to cause it. Anyone?

2) In the <client_state.xml> file under <coproc_cuda> what is <warpSize>32</warpSize>?

I first thought it was kind of funny (thinking back to the Star Trek days), but then I realized it was in the <client_state.xml> file for a reason. Would this relate to running under a 32 bit vs a 64 bit system in Windows 10?

A couple of quick pastes into search engines reveals that SETIWatch is a third-party add-on program, dating from about 1999. According to message 1800144, it was written by Mark Loukko.

SETIWatch is not included in vanilla-standard installations of either SETI or BOINC. I can only assume that at some point in the dim and distant past, either you, or somebody else with access to your machine, chose to install it.

Thanks Richard. In my hasty needs I neglected to check the search engines, and I also neglected to check the files in Control Panel under Programs and Features where I found the SETIWatch and deleted it. DOH!
