It was about this time of year, last year and the year before...the Nvidia License for WINDOWS expired.

When will the license expire this year?
Will the Windows ACEMD3 app be ready for the License renewal?

I am sure we are all looking forward to a smooth transition!

Haha. Yes, I was keeping a positive frame of mind.

It has been suggested staff at GPUgrid may be on a summer break. We all need holidays, so I hope they come back recharged and full of energy (and release acemd3)!

In the future they should issue license(s) expiring during semesters.

It's already happened. The license is expired. Look at the error rate for all returned work today.

Hi Keith. did you notice the post date?

I posted this 3 weeks prior to the event to try and pre-empt this license failure event.

I guess that post failed!

No I have rarely checked in here for a long while since the acemd3 app is not released for anybody. The topic came up in a gridcoin forum today which prompted me to look at the website.

I thought the license expired last month. See you were correct.

Just turn your system clock back to before license expiration date and it'll work fine, always keeping in mind that ii might affect other programmes on your PC.

Given this projects neglect of its users and it being a yearly problem I shouldn't have to post this.

One of the reasons I gave up BOINC completely.

It's a clear sign for what I have been saying before: the GPUGRID team normally does not read in the GPUGRID forum :-(
Otherwise, all bells would have started ringing in time.

Nice idea to roll back system time.
So, you will return WU before you receive it !!!
Then what shall happen with other PRJ andf all transmission protocols ?

The other project do not suffer with this problem. So, It is not all the world
who need to change. It is PRJ who need to change the WU. Am I wrong ?

Best regards

My "license to kill" was activated when their "windows license" expired and I have switched to that nVidia Linux SETI app. This project needs to go on the gridcoin blacklist IMHO.

I have not experienced this kind of problem with any other project than GPUGRID

I think that one of them did - the one needed to run under Linux. The one needed to run under recent versions of Windows expired perhaps a week ago. A third one, needed for Windows XP, has not expired yet but is expected to expire soon.
