I'm curious as to why I've got no credit even though I have 11 tasks completed and validated?

Run time (secs) = ~18,000
CPU time (secs) = ~3
Credit = "0" (zero)

?????????????????????????

Sorry, I do not know how to copy/paste the image of my results to this message.

^^^ "The project uses dedicated hardware sensor; without it the app does nothing and no credits are granted"


Could not find any of the devices listed in sensors.xml: The specified device was not found


So, either you don't have a sensor, or there's a connection problem. I'll wager the former ;)

Since several days, tasks are completed, validated but not credited - what is going wrong? Before, the same machine got credits using the same sensor...

Can't access your account page, but your tasks are at http://radioactiveathome.org/boinc/results.php?hostid=19659

Just picking one at random ...

So you'll you'll need to figure out if it's a power, USB or sensor problem somehow.

Well, I checked the project folder of the relevant machine and there is a file called sensors_1.78.xml which looks like this:

The strange thing is that even after removal and re-installation of the project, the problem persists.

It's related to the hardware. Could be a dead USB port, dodgy USB lead, broken sensor, something else on the USB root hub blocking the sensor.

Less likely crappy antivirus software, flaky OS update.

Wild guess - You've started running a QCN project - That will screw up the sensor because it polls USB so rapidly.

Obvious question ... Does the sensor show signs of life? Reasonable reading, reading changes, i.e. not frozen?
