    Attaching fails, in Messages all I see is:
    Fetching configuration file from http://www.primaboinca.com/get_project_config.php

    In the BOINC Manager I see:
    Failed to attach to project

    An error has occurred; check Messages for details.

      Which BOINC version are you running?

      I've seen this problem with older versions and the only way I could fix it was by doing a repair install of BOINC (no WUs are lost, so quite safe). Seems BOINC somehow just blocks projects for no reason.

      Cheers,

      Al.

        It was a 6.x version. But even after upgrding to a new 7.x version of boinc, I still can't add the project to that machine :-(

          Very strange. You haven't got any 'security' software installed that's being overly sensistive? No strange entries in your hosts file (assuming that it is Windows)? Firewall?

          Might be worth asking over at the BOINC forums, but they'll probably just bounce you back here.

          One thing you could try is using an old version. I use 5.10.45 wherever possible as the bugs, sorry, 'features' of version 6 and 7 make it unusable for me.

          Cheers,

          Al.
