It look like all of your tasks are getting the following errors thalena
18:59:50 (3768): Can\'t acquire lockfile (32) - waiting 35s
19:00:25 (3768): Can\'t acquire lockfile (32) - exiting
19:00:25 (3768): Error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (0x20)

I\'ve only seen those messages when an application gets orphaned (had it myself with another project\'s beta application yesterday). Based on your task list it looks like you had the problem on 25th January and again on 19th February. Since the second one your system has been allocated and failing a single task on each work request. The easiest way to remove the file locking would be to reboot your system.

I\'ve rebooted twice, tried detaching from the project and reattaching several times, and can\'t get it working. The only thing I haven\'t tried is detaching, rebooting and reattaching in that order. I can certainly detach now and wait for my next reboot and then reattach to see if I can fix it that way.

If you can post the messages (in the file stdoutdae.txt or stdoutdae.old in your BOINC data directory) around the time the second task failed on 19th February and on your most recent failure it might help us work out what\'s causing the problem.

Something is causing all of your tasks to fail before they\'ve accumulated any CPU time Andreas. Check that your anti-virus program hasn\'t quarantined the project\'s applications (currently hadam3p_6.14_windows_intelx86.exe, hadam3p_um_6.14_windows_intelx86.exe, hadsm3_6.07_windows_intelx86.exe, hadsm3_se_6.07_windows_intelx86.exe and hadsm3_um_6.07_windows_intelx86.exe). If you are running Norton Internet Security follow the instructions here.

If it\'s not an AV problem please post the messages recorded in the file stdoutdae.txt (in your BOINC data directory) on any of the task failures.

mzac,

From the stderr output, it appears that you need to install 32bit compatibility libraries on your 64 bit linux. A readme at the top of the Linux forum has more info.

Those crash some automatic software builds that I try to use, so I would rather not install them for the moment. I wonder why you need 32-bit. I am not sure when I will get back to this thread (and I see no way to be notified, so you might want to email me,) but my computer may be off after tomorrow for the rest of this week anyway.

You can subscribe to the thread. But then you will get notifications for every response. Better you should enable e-mail notification of Private Messages in

If members enable email notification of private messages in their account this is an excellent idea. For everybody. It\'s disabled by default. The moderators can\'t see members\' email addresses so private messages are our only way of contacting people personally.

It lools like CPDN isn\'t the only project which requires the 32-bit compatibility library David. You\'re getting the same error message on Einstein, QMC (but the qasino application runs OK), Spinhenge and SZTAKI Desktop Grid.

The error listed for those failures is: Invalid access to memory location

I tried a Google search on this error, which provided a fairly long list.


The ones near the top from social.answers.microsoft.com may provide a clue, but if not, there\'s lots of others to look at.

For the PC that Mo linked to, I\'m seeing \"CreateProcess() failed - Access is denied.\" in stderr. The probable cause according to the BOINC FAQ is a firewall or anti-virus/anti-malware program. See the link below for possible solutions.
