Hi everyone,

I created binaries for Windows intelx86 and x86_64. I am leaving them marked as beta until I a few of them have successfully completed. Let me know if you have any problems with these!

Thanks for your patience!

All the wildlife that I have downloaded has instantly gone computation error as soon as it has completed the download. What could be causing this?

Is it easy to fix

Looks like some missing libraries. I removed the apps for now and will add the missing libraries this weekend.

Thanks!

Thank you for the very timely update. I had the same exact issue with the work units almost instantly reporting an error. It's genuinely nice to get information on errors so quickly. Again, thank you.

Just finished adding (hopefully all) the missing libraries that most of you were seeing. If you are signed up for beta apps you should start seeing work on your windows boxes. Again, I will keep an eye out for problems but let me know if you have any issues.

All of the apps for Citizen Science Grid are tested and released for OSX and Linux before they are built for Widows. If you don't have a Mac or Linux box, being signed up for the beta apps and reporting any errors or strange behavior can really help us.

Thanks for all of your responses, I appreciate the feedback!

Thanks Kyle

Wildlife download for windows is now downloading ok and the tasks are processing and completing good also. (windows 8)

Thought I let you know, but alas my own personal situation is that I only have a 4gig monthly allowance of broadband and these will eat this up very fast, so I will need to stick with the sub tasks.

When I get connected to the national broadband network being rolled out I reckon things will change.

Very nice to have such quick replies from admin as well.

regards.....................Mark:)

WU run smoothly So for me. My system is Windows 7, Intel I7. A note should again be made very clear that much bandwidth is needed. A WU has the 90 minute calculation time, has a Durschnittsgröße of about 400MB. If you can run only 3 cores are in an hour 2 WU which one executes, or about 800 MB download. By 24 hours, which is nearly 20 GB. No problem for me, but who must pay attention to the amount of data already.
