Posting this in the beta forums as I noticed it when aborting beta WUs.

Once upon a time, in the dim and distant past a version of Boinc manager introduced the ability to abort a WU. I reported a bug then that if you aborted a WU that the boinc cc hung and would not move onto the next WU when it reached a WU that had been aborted.

Not so long ago, but still so far back I can not remember the version Boinc mgr successfully aborted a WU and the WU was returned with a client error status and the CC would move onto the next WU in the cache.

Now with version 4.45 of BOINC manager if I abort a beta WU it hangs the CC again. When the CC reaches the aborted WU in the cache it hangs and does not skip onto the next WU. I have to suspend and restart the project for it to flag the WU as client error and move on.

I am also using 4.45 and have not had this problem, unfortunately I have had to abort a few WU's lately in several projects. I aborted a Beta WU while it was suspended, it errored out, reported, BOINC went on to the next WU.

Once you have aborted the WU, try update to report the WU and see if this helps.

Worth a try, so I did a project update and the WUs are still in aborted status. I did not suspend mine before I aborted them, is that significant?

I had to hand hold the previous batch I aborted when client 4.03 came out I aborted all the old 4.02 WUs and they all hung. I have just aborted two 4.03 WUs since 4.04 is now out, I will leave them as is but I expect the CC to hang when the current 4.03 WU completes.

No problem whatsoever with the unit I aborted in CC4.70 and 4.02 app.

I don't really want to try it on the 4.03 app. (I am just up to 2 units a day ;))

My aborted beta WUs are still hung, so no progress on the beta project as the WUs are not moving on to the new 4.04 WUs :-(

What value do you have your "connect to Project every" set?

Sorry for the delay in responding. We are off on holiday now for a week so turning all BOINC stuff off. I will have another go with the beta when I return, see if I can get those aborted WUs to report as client error.

Abort wu's shouldf deapear when the project request and get more work.
If a wu is aborted why worry it should disapear evenually.

Definitely having problems with "aborted" WUs. Having been away for a week with BOINC shutdown, I had a closer look at my WU cache. As all production WUs had completed their quote I decided to abort my WUs in the cache. So for the live SETI WUs I aborted all in my cache and just left the part completed WU in process. When this finished nothing happened, the aborted WUs just sat there, no new WUs were downloaded (I guess the CC thinks it has enough work). CPU went idle. (I had the beta project suspended at the time). :-(

I tried various methods and I could still apparently suspend and resume an aborted WU. This seemed to kick the CC into life to report the aborted WU as computation error.
