    I just added SZTAKI DG onto another PC, where I have a different setup for General preferences (don't crunch while pc is in use).
    After attaching to the project I got the following messages:

    7/13/2005 12:35:09 PM|SZTAKI Desktop Grid|General preferences have been updated
    7/13/2005 12:35:09 PM||General prefs: from SZTAKI Desktop Grid (last modified 2005-07-13 18:35:05)
    7/13/2005 12:35:09 PM||General prefs: no separate prefs for work; using your defaults

    It doesn't recognize the "work" preferences, so now it crunches 24/7.
    I just checked, I think the same happenes with the SZTAKI preferences, it only recognizes the default values.

    Happy crunching!

      i've just altered my settings for 'work': it should always work, and after an update the client finds the
      seperate prefs for 'work' and starts to work ( also tried your settings with the 'same' results).

      please check if the seperete prefs for work are ok, and the pc is assigned into the correct venue.

      i see you are using a windows client ( i am using a macintosh), so i'll go and find a windows machine
      and check it there.

        Exit Boinc (close it down completely), go to your Boinc folder, edit the client_state.xml file with Notepad.
        Search in the XML file for an entry called host_venue. It'll be in there as <host_venue>home</host_venue>

        Change the home to work. Save the XML file again.
        Restart Boinc. The correct venue should now be showing for the project that is using a different venue.

          Ohhh, OK. My bad. On the SZTAKI website under "view computers" and "computer summary", I forgot to change the location to "work" for the second PC. Last week when I first attached and tried to change the different venue setups, they were not working, Adam had to fix it. But this time I completely forget to set it up right. D'oh!!

          Thanks for your help!

            yes, this is the simplest way to do that. at least there is no need to force myself before a windows client now ;p
