The message exit code -1073741510 (0xc000013a) means that when you log off of Windows the application gets terminated quite abruptly. Apparently BOINC/the science applications don't like that too much. I understand Vista can shut down in 2 seconds... that's not enough time for BOINC to stop.

So before you shut down your computer next time, exit BOINC.

  • If you run as a normal user install, it's done through Boinc Manager, File->Exit.
  • If you run as a service install, you need to stop the service first. Start->Run, type net stop boinc and hit enter.


Copy the following text and paste it into the Notepad window, called WaitToKill.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


The 20000 is 20 seconds. Increase/decrease to your liking.

To add this to the registry double-click the file. The UAC will come up, press continue, press Yes on the next window and OK on the one there-after. You need to reboot to make the changes have effect.

You can also use the following bit of code in a batchfile (.bat).
Put it in Notepad, save it as Shutdown.bat (make sure the extension is .bat, not .txt)
Do change the path between %PROGRAMFILES% if your BOINC lives elsewhere.

boinccmd --quit
shutdown -s -t 20

Updating BOINC past 5.10 will fix this error as well.
