Seems like I tried everything but to no avail.
Anybody have a clue as to what I need to do to get work units?

Thanks

Not sure what the problem is, as its working for me.

Have you checked your NumberFields@home preferences for selecting which apps to run?
I have seen users return after a long time and had the GetDecics box unchecked (probably a holdover from the days of the Bounded app)

I have confirmed that the GetDecics box is checked.

I have recently run Prime, SETI, Einstein and Milky Way WUs with no problem.

I do not have "Use CPU" box checked as I want to use my GPUs. In other applications that is not a problem so I assume it isn't here.

I do have the box checked to run test applications. Is that a problem?

Any other ideas?

Ah!
This project has so far only CPU apps available; but GPU Apps are in work!

Thanks for telling me that. I will run them when you have them.

I would run CPU wus except that I have heat problems that I can't overcome.

Have another go and see if you can get GPU work now

Another thing to keep in mind is this app requires openCL 1.2, and it looks like your video driver only supports 1.1. You might be able to upgrade the driver.

I have been reluctant to change drivers because I also run Prime Grid and those wus sometimes have problems with some drivers. I am also not knowledgeable about computers. I just use the thing. Having said that I just might give it a try.
When I saw the announcement about the new GPU tasks I thought they were available immediately. I assume they are a short time off as someone said only CPU tasks are currently available.

I'm trying to run the cpu apps here but the cache won't stay full and some pc's just aren't getting any workunits sent to them at all.I am running a zero resource share project and do have this Project set higher so it should be getting workunits. And yes I have all the boxes checked except the 'use gpu' ones and even the 'send me a different kind of workunit if the kind I have checked isn't available'. SOME of my computers are getting tasks but not all of them, I have over a dozen pc's with over 100 cpu cores total here and am trying to increase my stats a bit.

Did this start working for you? I checked about half of your computers and they have tasks in progress. If there are specific hosts with problems let me know which ones and I can troubleshoot it.

I noticed earlier all my hosts had 2nd hand tasks. It seems like a ton of tasks expired simultaneously and were reissued at the higher priority - when this happens the scheduler will only give them to hosts it deems are "reliable". I think this may have been the problem, and you are probably not the only one affected.

Yes it started working for me overnight, I'm on the East Coast of the US, thank you. I'm hoping that was the problem, which makes sense as most have never been here before.
