So, I just found a portable Version of BOINC: http://code.google.com/p/boincportable/ and tried it - it integrates into the portableapps.com-suite and works nicely overall (perfectly with WCG that is) but has a problem with Enigma:

it runs up to sometimes 50, 75 or even 95% and then restarts the WU. Over and over again.
I tried removing and re-downloading the wrapper an the app (automatically via attaching to BAM), but that didn't help.

Any ideas? Is this a general problem and enigma is just not portable-compatible or can I fix it?

Message 1513 - Posted: 8 Feb 2010, 15:40:02 UTC - in response to Message 1512.  

Some more details: I just witnessed the progress bar jumping form ~45% to 99,97% and then back to ~56% and then falling to ~2%.

With every jump it requests new work, so the queue grows longer and longer...

I'm not quite sure what you mean. BOINC is 6.10.18, Enigma is 0.76b 5.22. Does this answer your question?

Ok, the first WUs are now Completed and validated, so I guess it's just the known bug which only affects the progressbar.

But I set BOINC to not request new tasks as a precaution because it downloaded new WUs like every 3 minutes and i didnt want to wait until it stops by itself :/.
