Dear folks, we temporary disable tasks generation for Windows due to high rate of errors on Windows machines. This application needs more work.

Also, you can see now many errors in a row for any type of system, for workunits released several days ago and for which your result was not the first. This is a consequence of changing names of some files in new verison of applications. When this workunits complete it's lifecycle we will recreate them for new application.

This error occurs for workunits with an failed first task.

Maybe you noticed that for Windows 7 the get_fraction_done is also not working ...

Although not a show stopper.

I am seeing all failures on Linux for 11.08.

Should I allow them to run to clear them out,or set No new tasks to stop them?

We moved out "failed workunits" from database and disable task generation. A certain number of tasks may come in, try to crunch it.
Hope that new tasks for Linux coming soon.
