    I occasionally get a dialogue box popping up with details of a “Visual-Fortran Run-Time Error” – details below. This doesn’t appear to affect the model’s running but I would hate to think I will get to the end of a calculation and find that the information is useless. I have two PCs running CPDN models though BOINC – both have displayed the error. I have run other applications through BOINC without getting the error, so my conclusion is that there is a CPDN problem. Any suggestions?

      Hi,

      This won\'t affect the integrity of the data, but sometimes people\'s models crash when this happens. I haven\'t seen it myself, and neither have the other moderators, so we\'re not sure what causes this on some PCs.

      Is there anything in common between the two PCs? i.e., which AVs do you use, which graphics cards, is there anything unusual installed on both? Is there anything which is installed in the filesystem stack such as GoBack? Do you run with the Boinc screensaver turned on or off?

        Just to answer a different part of your post, you get Fortran errors here because the climate modelling program is written in Fortran.
        You can\'t get it in other programs if they\'re NOT written in Fortran, and very few would be unless they too are scientific programs.

          The two PCs are physically different. One is an HP Desktop running Windows XP Home Edition. The other is a Dell laptop running XP Professional. They both have MS Office 93 and a number of other fairly common applications in common (Messenger, AutoRoute, Encarta, WinZip, BT Broadband SoftPhone, BBC iPlayer, Google Desktop etc). There are also some differences in the apps on each machine. The BOINC screensaver is turned on; the BOINC app only runs as a screensaver and thinking about the circumstances, the Fortran error only occurs as BOINC is suspended.

          If you are comfortable that no data will be lost then I won’t worry about the problem too much. Clearing the dialogue box is a mere inconvenience – nothing more. But if there is anything I can test to get closer to the problem, please let me know.

            Though the screensaver is interesting, the general advice here is to turn it off, as it slows the model down considerably. BOINC will still run in the background, and the graphics can be started from BOINC Manager when wanted.

            I have had the FORTRAN error once, and it was because an HP printer driver started to run at 100% CPU. One thing therefore to check might be to start Task Manager in Windows and see if anything is running at a high CPU percentage when you\'re not actually doing anything (suspend BOINC).

              Hi Wedgwood. You said

              the BOINC app only runs as a screensaver


              The screensaver part of BOINC is just an optional extra, and running it can cause problems (I don\'t know whether it caused your error messages though). The screensaver slows down the processing of the climate model itself and makes graphics problems more likely. I\'d disable it. You can still see your globe when you want to using the graphics button in BOINC manager.

              To increase your chances of completing models, go to the README collections through my signature or Mike\'s.

              * In the READMEs about backups, select a method of backing up your BOINC folder contents regularly. I use Les\'s easy manual method. This way, if a model does crash, a backup can be restored and the model continued. It\'s the only way to get a crashed model crunching again.

              * In the READMEs about crashes and problems, look at item #6 by Mike where he lists all sorts of useful advice. The advice there won\'t necessarily get rid of the Fortran error messages which mysteriously appear on some computers, but it will help you avoid all sorts of other potential problems.

                That\'s very interesting, particularly the link to suspending Boinc. If anyone else reports the problem I\'ll cross-reference your applications with theirs to see if there is something in common :-)

                  I have been getting this error for at least three months and I haven\'t bothered contacting anyone because I just rebooted my laptop and it went away for two to three weeks. Well it is back again so I decided I should let someone know about it.

                  First here is the contents of the error dialog. Now this is the sixth or seventh error box that pops up in a row. I didn\'t watch to see if they had different info, I will try to do that next time. This time there was only about eight of these boxes. Sometimes they seem endless and that is when I just reboot because I lose patience in clicking the \'OK\' button. We are talking 20+ boxes.

                    Kevin,

                    Your portable computer has been having rather a miserable time: 30 models have got nowhere fast, whereas your XP machine has done much better. There are potential problems with BOINC on Vista, for which work-arounds are described in the Vista section of the \'Crashes and other problems\' README. The latest BOINC version also has some Vista fixes.

                    Iain

                      That\'s one thing in common from the previous poster - they are both HPs. But one is a laptop and the other a desktop.

                      What other software do you run - any from this list? MS Office 93, Messenger, AutoRoute, Encarta, WinZip, BT Broadband SoftPhone, BBC iPlayer, Google Desktop ... ? Any others?

                      Which antivirus / firewall solution do you use? Have you got anything unusual installed which affects the filesystem (such as GoBack?)

                        I have, in the past, had an occasional Visual Fortran Run-Time Error - from memory about 3 occurrences with the last one being a year ago - and in each case I treated them as one-off anomolies since they caused no apparent long-term problem and I went on to complete the model satisfactorily.

                        However, I have, quite coincidentally, just managed to generate a series of them, and I know exactly how I did it.

                        Usually, when I apply any updates to Windows or to antivirus software, or any other significant software, I suspend BOINC and then Exit BOINC before applying. I never have software updates set to be applied automatically. But, with a lapse in concentration yesterday, although I had suspended BOINC, I had failed to exit it when I applied 3 software updates. They were actually related to MS Office. After the update, I resumed BOINC and the Visual Fortran Run-Time Errors popped up repetitively until I closed BOINC and reloaded Windows, since when they have not recurred.

                        Could Wedgwood Blue have some updates set to be automatically applied?

                          What was different this time is that I had just been using my laptop in the unplugged mode and it had gone into hibernation. When it came out of hibernation is when I received about eight pop up boxes with the following:
                          ---------------------------
                          Visual Fortran run-time error

                          I just took a look at the README file and I will do at least two of those right away. I will uninstall BOINC and then reinstall the upgrade and install it outside of the \\program files\\ folder. I will let you know how that goes. Thanks for your information. kevinH

                            I see Messenger is in common with the earlier reports too, but that may be simple coincidence since messenger is very common.

                            Regarding hibernation, I\'d recommend either disabling it, or shutting down boinc prior to hibernation (ditto with other sleep modes).

                              I also got a similar message \"forrtl, severe (38) error during write ...\" with a different stack trace. The error box appeared a few more times while climateprediction was running, and them stopped appearing.

                              That work unit ended very early with a Status of \"computation error\", about 7% done really.

                              I was not hibernating (it is desktop).

                                What software do you use on the PC? (i.e., which A/V, firewall, and anything else which is running for a long time?)

                                Are they associated with anything happening on the PC, such as an update?

                                  I started the Task manager, opened the Ptrocess tab, and noticed that indeed there was a software update running, \"Update for HP agent\".

                                  The PC is running Windows XP SP2, Home Entertainment Edition. A/v software is Norton Internet Security.

                                  I have been trying to run that system at 90% processor.

                                  Should I turn off the update agent and run it manually only?

                                  Mike, I sent you a private message with more details.

                                    The problem is not the automatic updates, it\'s the automatic re-boot needed by a lot of programs to make the changes work.
                                    Re-booting the computer while BOINC (and the model), is running, is asking for trouble, as the OS doesn\'t allow enough time for BOINC, (and the programs data files), to close nicely.

                                      Hi Michael,

                                      I\'ve forwarded your PM to Tolu since it has some interesting information.

                                      Could I recommend that you set up Norton A/V so that it does not scan the Boinc folders? This is done via the two \'exclusion lists\' (one list for automated scans, and the other for manual scans). It is possible that Norton is taking exclusive locks out on the project data files, and thereby preventing the system from writing to the file. (I don\'t know if this is causing your particular problem, but it has been implicated in crashes before).

                                      -Cheers,

                                      Mike

                                        OK, on my PC, I did the following:
                                        + Stopped the HP auto update process. I will run it manually.
                                        + Excluded the NAV scans from scanning the C:\\Program files\\BOINC directories.
                                        + BOINC preferences are back at 100% CPU use.

                                        Is there a particular subdirectory I should exclude below C:\\Program files\\BOINC or exclude the whole tree?

                                        I can provide some Fortran suggestions on how handle the write error.

                                          I think what they\'d like to do is to have some way to intercept all Fortran I/O calls and handle the exceptions from them at low level. It would be impossible to change each call individually, given the million lines of code written over 30 years by meteorologists...

                                            In the run-time message my PC incountered (like the original poster), it was a write to unit 8. The file path and name was C:\\Program files\\BOINC\\projects\\climateprediction.net\\hadsm3fub_jjy2_005943981\\tmp\\pipe_dummy

                                            On my PC, that file exists as a zero-length file.

                                            Also, on a different work unit today, I noticed a message in the message tab from climateprediction.net something like \"failed to initialize DLL\" and \"if this recurs, reboot your computer\". So, I rebooted.

                                            My desktop system is not rebooted often. Also, the PC uses climateprediction.net and another BOINC project.

                                              The \'failed to initialize DLL\' message is misleading. There used to be a message called \'Exited with zero status and no result file\', but due to a bug in the Boinc client from around 5.10 onwards, the DLL message appears instead.

                                              A rather simple bug :

                                              if (result_code = 2) ()

                                              rather than

                                              if (result_code == 2) {}

                                              It has been fixed in the V6 branch (which is not yet ready for release), but for some reason has not been fixed in the V5 branch. The Boinc core client is maintained by Berkeley.


                                              The meaning of \'Exited with zero status...\' is that the science app exited, but without setting the \'completed\' flag. The most common reason for this is the system time sync - when setting the clock backwards, even by a few milliseconds, Boinc forces all the science apps to close down for a moment. I\'ve modified my time sync to only happen once per week.

                                                I have been getting a similar error box message for about a week. I click on \'OK\' and the model appears to continue to run. I think it occurs when the screensaver kicks in, the timing is about right. The actual message is:

                                                I am also running another application under BOINC that doesn\'t appear to have any problems. I also am running another PC with the same basic setup, but ClimatePrediction.net isn\'t getting an error on that PC. Any ideas on what is causing this and how to eliminate it?

                                                    On my system kaspersky-antivirus ist running an because of network-preferences i´m not allowed to exclude my BOINC-folder or subfolders.

                                                    What can i do to run cliamteprediction-work as well as seti-workunits (which won´t produce errors?

                                                      If the BOINC folders cannot be excluded, then it is possible to use the BOINC Manager preferences (i.e. \'processor usage\') to suspend the model during the period when the anti-virus application does a scan. That may help.

                                                        I just reset the project each time it does this. I suspect other users just dump the project or shrug. This relationship is supposed to be lightweight on our part. I read this is i/o errors, access conflicts, boinc, time sync, etc., some postings explaining log messages that are not related.

                                                        Don\'t you think it\'s time for a FAQ, if not a fix?

                                                          I have been receiving the same error sporadically for the last week. As I started writing this, the error popped up 5 times in 10 seconds. I have a desktop Vista home premium. I am running latest version of BOINC. CPDN and World Community Grid are the only 2 clients that are running.

                                                          My power setting is for \'high performance. Computing preferences set preferentially high for CPDN.

                                                          Examining test manager, my active BOINC clients are the only tasks using the processor. I did however, see a stray hadcm3transum project sitting in memory but not using any processor time, that was not one of the currently active CPDN projects.

                                                          My monitor is using \'photos\' screen saver.

                                                            I have been getting this same kind of message (error 38, kernel32) for a few days. I have successfully crunched one task before, without any message. Nothing has changed on my system, but I did change one thing in the BOINC options: I told it to suspend calculations instead of calculating all the time, although I am not sure the error appeared exactly when I changed this option or if this is a coincidence. I am using XP Home SP3, Avira AntiVir PE and Outpost Firewall on an ASUS laptop. No Messenger, the laptop is just standing idle, and I am not using any screen saver (Boinc or other). When I set the calculation mode to Idle, the message seems to reappear each time calculations resume, but strangely the message box closes itself as soon as I move the mouse pointer. If I change the calculation mode back to continuous, the error appears even more frequently and I have to close it manually. Another strange thing is that Boinc seems to be trickling, as if the error dd not stop calculations.

                                                            Update: I rebooted the laptop, restarted Boinc in continuous mode and the error disappeared. I switched back to idle mode and still got no error...

                                                              That\'s one thing in common from the previous poster - they are both HPs. But one is a laptop and the other a desktop.

                                                              What other software do you run - any from this list? MS Office 93, Messenger, AutoRoute, Encarta, WinZip, BT Broadband SoftPhone, BBC iPlayer, Google Desktop ... ? Any others?

                                                              Which antivirus / firewall solution do you use? Have you got anything unusual installed which affects the filesystem (such as GoBack?)



                                                              I am having the same error on another HP machine, I wonder if this mainly happens on HP machines

                                                                No, it\'s not unique to HP. This morning I\'ve started seeing the same Fortran error. This particular machine I put together with off-the-shelf parts - Asus MB, AMD64 - processor running Windows XP Home Edition.

                                                                I was researching the error in the forum which is how I came across this thread.

                                                                From what I gather, this isn\'t a problem in terms of completing the taks, right? The message tab doesn\'t indicate any sort of problem and the tasks suspend and resume like they should.

                                                                I\'ll do a reboot shortly and see if I get the error again.

                                                                  ... From what I gather, this isn\'t a problem in terms of completing the taks, right? ...

                                                                  ... it depends. The error indicates that something is interfering with the normal running of the climate model. So long as the model stops and restarts then it will eventually complete, though some processing time will have been lost at each restart. However, whatever is causing the problem may also deny the model the resources it needs to run at all or at an important time (e.g. file saving or reading) - and the model may crash.

                                                                    It\'s Message of BOINC client.

                                                                      It\'s possible that the work you\'re doing is causing the model to be interrupted too often. Try Suspending BOINC while you work, or use the option in your Prefs, Suspend work while computer is in use?. Set this to yes, and then set BOINC to Run based on preferences

                                                                      As for Fortran problems, no one has been able to work out why this happens to some computers, on some occasions.
                                                                      It\'s possible that not running the model while you\'re running other programs may help with this as well.

                                                                          Your model appears to have crashed just after you posted about it. Whether or not that was related to the visual-fortran message I don\'t know because the 22 exit code is so general that it could mean almost anything.

                                                                          I see you haven\'t got a new model yet. If you have a backup you could restore it, tolerate the popup warning while the model finishes, then reset CPDN after completion.

                                                                          If you aren\'t going to restore a backup I think you should reset CPDN before getting a new model. This popup warning could mean a corrupted file, in which case a reset may clear the problem up.

                                                                          Apologies for the delay in replying.
