Message 24 - Posted: 8 Sep 2009, 17:09:12 UTC - in response to Message 22.  

This happened immediately after a restart. The client seemed to have trouble reading where it left off. This could happen for a number of reasons, such as the client being shut down unexpectedly or being unable to write to the output file for some reason (defragmenting, antivirus checking it, etc.). I'm sorry this happened to you, but it may happen occasionally.

Did you have to manually intervene? Did a crash box pop up? After calling boinc_finish, it should have reported that error then continued on automatically with the next work unit.

Good! That is an error that I really can't do much about, much like the occasional no finished file error. If the checkpoint can't be written properly, this will happen. Fortunately, looking at the project error stats, it's rare. But it used to crash at that point. I uploaded a new version about a week ago that exits cleanly and continues on with the next work unit rather than crashing.
