Hi there

I don't know what it's wrong but I don't get any WUs for my machine. Are there any limitations? There are plenty of Wildlife@Home WUs ready to send and I've turned on the participation at the project settings page.
But always my message log displays that there 're no WUs for me:

any hints? Machine ID
Thank you

I think they have still not created any Wildlife@Home WUs for windows.
I wish windows would take priority over OSX then more people would be happy and able to help the project. ... just my opinion.
They are getting ready to try something different with the DNA and there will be changes, so it looks like the "small guys" with a windows machine, like you and I are stuck with Subset Sum WUs for Citizen Science Grid.

If windows wasn't such a pain in the proverbial a$$ to develop for, we'd do it first. :P Visual studio is a royal mess compared to linux/unix build tools...

Also, I kind of like testing on the less used OSX, then moving to Linux, then windows. That way we get most of the errors debugged without doing a wide release to all the windows users.

Thanks for the explanation. Good to know there are reasons that make some sense.
And ... Thanks to you and the others for all your hard work.

Have you tried something like MinGW + Msys to develop on windows? That should make it easier to port from Linux.

I did awhile back, but MinGW had it's own set of bugs that made life difficult. Maybe it's gotten better since then.
