Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Tasks crash after upgrading to BOINC 6.12.26
There have been a number of reports of tasks crashing immediately after upgrading to BOINC 6.12.26 (here, here and here).
execl(/Library/Application Support/BOINC Data/projects/climateprediction.net/hadcm3n_um_6.07_i686-apple-darwin, 130475) failed!
Mac runs applications in a sandbox, with the BOINC core client running project applications under a limited permissions account. All CPDN applications consist of 2 programs; BOINC runs the controller process with starts the worker process (e.g. hadcm3n_um_6.07_i686-apple-darwin). It appears that a permissions change in 6.12.26 is preventing the worker process launch when the application programs are already on your system.
Resetting CPDN (or detaching and reattaching) forces the application programs to be redownloaded and should fix the problem.

It seems that resetting isn't sufficient to fix the problem, so Detach is necessary.

This "fix" must be applied each time BOINC is upgraded, starting with the version mentioned.
