How to recognize errors?

From BOINC Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

By rule of thumb:

  • BOINC errors are always negative and big.
  • Project application numbers are always positive.

Exit code -1073741502 (0xC0000142) is a BOINC error.

Exit code 10 is an application error.

Usually, when encountering project application errors, the message is preceded by: "Process exited with ..."; this is to show you that it wasn't BOINC's fault, but the application that broke down. Report such errors on the project forums. Their developers will want to know.

Signals are also errors. But they belong in a separate category.
