It worked the way you both said.

Thanks!

(why do they have to put terroristic descriptions like "are you really, really sure you want to defintely remove boinc software and all related science and never be able to undo your decision", anyway? Well, not literally, actually... but it sounded like that! ;opp

Thanks again, guys

Hi guys,

sorry if the question is silly... but I found nothing of help (maybe the SETI forums, bet they are down)!

I donloaded the version 4.24 of BOINC client. When I ran the file, setup didn't work because it needed the windows scripting server 5.6. I went to the Microsoft site, downloaded and istalled it. Then setup started correctly. But after seconds it shows a dialogue with the following text:"Setup has detected an older version of BOINC which must be uninstalled before this version of BOINC can be installed.

Is it a JOKE??? As I understand, BOINC can't be simply uninstalled, it can only be removed - along with (just to name one) the CP model and all...

Did I miss something?
TIA

John,

what can I say? You were right, I was wrong: I unwillingly used a different e-mail with Pirates@Home :-(

Thanks!

Looks like there is a mismatch between how Pirates@Home identifies me as opposed to the other BOINC projects (SETI, ProteinPredictor, CP).

Going to www.boincstats.com and searching for user "Arielk", I have a result of two identities, one "general" and the other specific to Pirates. I also have the same problem with another statistic site, this one from KWSN: stats.kwsn.net.

I guess it is something related to the account creation process?
