It is possible to run as many as you want concurrently. A bug unfortunately prevents simultaneous starts. I am investigating possible workarounds but no timeline yet, sorry. Requirements are in some other thread; they are rather mild (only thing you need to have the gcc package installed).

We also corrected a problem with the badges calculation: ranks were computed wrongly for the last three papers. This was fixed, so colors and lists may have changed.

@tex There should be no need or possibility to tweak symlinks.

There is a bug when several QC start at the same time. Try to reset the project and have only one QC WU start (the others can start later).

Do you have anything useful in stderr.txt or *.out files? While the app is running, it should create output/* subdirectories in the slot directory, and update the fraction_done regularly.

The Ubuntu shell should allow you to see additional temporary files, which are created in /tmp (e.g. ls -l /tmp) and check running processes (e.g. top).

The 1-not-4 threads may a problem with environment variables to be passed from Windows/Boinc/Wrapper to Linux processes. As Juha pointed out it differs between W10 releases. Which means that run times will be longer. I wish I saw at least one success...

Submitted it to virustotal (sha sum 48cf265f8d850c94998787cd86201b62ac4308dc). Only baidu reports a warning.

It's a simple executable cross-compiled with mingw.

Perhaps the "accept beta work" is overriding the individual selections?

Some cumulative answers...

1. I expect WUs to run for ~3 hours, like the Linux ones.
2. Time estimates are done by BOINC with its obscure adaptive algorithms, please don't take them seriously.
3. If the WU hangs, feel free to kill it. It should be visible in the task manager as "Python"
4. The "sysnative" path is correct (only the wrapper sees it).

@bri - do you have w10 32 or 64 bit? Forgot to mention that only 64 bit W10 will work.

@richard - it SHOULD be possible to run boinc under wsl, and manage it with the windows client. It's not what the app is attempting to do...

I released a tentative W10 app with the same number, but then deprecated it. No real change for Linux.
