1) Questions and Answers : Windows : Credit (Message 102)
Posted 4834 days ago by Anna L
Well, that makes a lot of sense. But. I looked at the status and the result where 0.00 credit was claimed was an error. So, there are still some things to work out there.

Hi!

I crunched my first work unit - and I got claimed credit of 0.02 - but no pending credit, and no actual credit. Why is that?

I got the same thing. However, I got the strangest thing with credit. There is no pending credit, there is no actual credit, there is just claimed credit - weird. What's with the credit?
