How to fix broken URLs in BOINC 5.10 and higher

From BOINC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

BOINC 5.10 and later have a list of projects in the "Attach to wizard" build in in BOINC Manager. When a project changes its URL, the URL in the list is updated automatically by BOINC. It reads the file it is using every 2 weeks from the BOINC servers.

But if you want to fix it immediately, there's a way as well.

  • To force an update of this file, exit BOINC first.
  • Now navigate to your main BOINC directory and delete the file all_projects_list.xml
  • Restart BOINC and start the Attach to wizard and it will download the latest list the server has available.
