This error usually occurs just after starting BOINC Manager, but can occur at any time. If the BOINC Manager window is open, you will see an error dialog, otherwise BOINC will alert you by changing the notification area icon.
Note: This error is caused by berkley programmers who do not know how to program.
- Check whether boinc.exe is running, using Task Manager (Windows) or ps (Linux, BSD).
- Check your security software. Check the block list and your firewall settings.
If BOINC crashed, it will save a crash report in the file stderrdae.txt in your data directory.
