Message 14279 - Posted: 27 Jan 2016, 3:06:01 UTC

I joined this project just last night. This morning, on the server status page I saw that Session 2933 had unsent tasks (there is a blue portion of the Progress bar, and when I click on it there are unsent tasks, and the frame number is constantly increasing). Under computing status it also says that there are 26 tasks ready to send.

This is the only project on my computer (Windows) and there are no other running tasks. I have not seen any relevant messages in the Event Log, and it seems to be asking for CPU work:
1/27/2016 10:56:21 AM | BURP | [work_fetch] request: CPU (103680.00 sec, 2.00 inst) NVIDIA GPU (0.00 sec, 0.00 inst)

I have tried looking through the FAQ, but now this project is in beta (and anyway there are available tasks), does it still apply? Does anyone know why I get 0 tasks? Thanks

What does it say in the event log? If everything's okay on your end, you should see something like the following:

1/26/2016 8:03:45 PM | BURP | Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
1/26/2016 8:03:45 PM | BURP | Requesting new tasks for CPU

And then, a response from the server such as "no work available", or something similar. If you don't have the above messages, the BOINC client isn't requesting tasks for some reason.

Yeah these lines from the log come right after the line I posted:
27-Jan-2016 10:56:21 [BURP] Sending scheduler request: To fetch work.
27-Jan-2016 10:56:21 [BURP] Requesting new tasks for CPU
27-Jan-2016 10:56:22 [BURP] Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
27-Jan-2016 10:56:22 [BURP] No tasks sent
27-Jan-2016 10:56:22 [BURP] Tasks for NVIDIA GPU are available, but your preferences are set to not accept them

I had disabled GPUs hoping it would work, since it didn't work with GPUs enabled. Thanks for replying!

Your machine is running the wrong operating system. It is a 64 bit P6200 CPU but it has Microsoft Windows 7 Home Basic x86 Edition installed which is 32 bit.

No 32 bit support, sorry
