    Guys,

    I know this topic has been posted in different threads. But for the sake of ease to find for newcomers, I am posting this again.

    WCG client reports finished WU automatically but at random times. To make the client to report work units automatically after they have finished, we have to edit the config file.

    Benifits of doing this are

    U r WU get reported as soon as they are finished which reduces the time spent for validation and points to be granted to your rig. This puts numbers on the stats page which would otherwise have taken more time to show up.

    Two ways of doing this.
    a) Manually edit the CC_config file
    b) Download the edited CC-config file and extract it into the Bionic directory.

    Location of CC-Config file

    XP
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOINC\

    Vista
    C:/ProgramData/BOINC

    The cc_config has the file extension of .XML .To edit it, open using notepad.

    Option a

    Open the cc_config file using notepad. Clear out the existing contents. Paste the below mentioned text and save it.

    <cc_config>
    <options>
    <report_results_immediately>1</report_results_immediately>
    </options>
    </cc_config>

    Option b

    Download the below mentioned file.

    Extract it into the Bionic directory depending on ur OS. Confirm yes if it asks u to replace file.


    Most Importantly, which ever option u choose to mod the cc_config file, u have to read the config file to put the changes into effect.

    In your Bionic client's Advanced View, Go to

    Advanced-Read Config file

    Hope it helps!!

    Regards,
    Shiv

    If you don't need the results reported immediately, but just frequently, you can go into preferences (from the advanced view) and on the networking tab, set the connection interval to something like .01 days (= .24 hours = about 15minutes)

    If you're internet connection is always on, it doesn't really matter, but this might be an option for people who are reluctant to play with the config file.

    I must say this did wonders for me. I didn't have to edit the file neither, I just used the file that dusty provided and it started to work perfectly. Good write up dusty :toast:

    Same here on W7 for me. Just keep an eye on the advanced view of BOINC, make sure that everything there is just running or waiting to start, nothing ready to submit. If everything there is already running or waiting to start then you have nothing waiting to submit and you are good to go :toast:

    so far so good then. Try to keep an eye when you see projects about to finish, and monitor them. When they finish they should submit moments after and disappear from there.

    You need to extract the config file to the BOINC data folder, not the BOINC program files folder. On Vista/7, I believe you want to extract it to C:\ProgramData\BOINC (sorry, I only have XP here so I can't confirm this)

    should be after and update or two at the most.

    We go here though. This is where we get the info for the pie thread and the other threads. The same points as WCG, but divided by 7.

    Often it takes longer, you have to wait for the WUs to get validated, it might take up to a day or more.
