Did you update the .NET libraries to the last ones ? Windows Updates should handle it, but it seems that it doesn't on some systems ...

No idea why the new version doesn't work with that one. I have had to roll back the version on that machine.
Interesting, I'll keep that in mind when I mess with it. The previous version was working fine, then the new one will open, show old work units, but doesn't see any slots.

I did a few weeks back when I first went to HFM 9.28.1718.0. I'll double check that as well.

One of my computers is reporting 0 completed and 0 failed, as per this thread, any ideas?:

The tasks are being completed ok, I've found them on the server.
How does HFM calculate this value?

HFM must be running when the WU is completed and returned to the server. If it wasn't running at this moment, it doesn't know that the WU has been completed.

Just an update from me... went back to V9.28/1718, added the (local) slot and everything is back up and running fine again. I'm not sure how old the previous version was, and it may have just needed a computer related update that I missed until I installed the later HFM.


@Pete_Hucker,

Have you by chance renamed the slots on that machine and possibly not saved the new name? Having renamed mine a few times before I settled on how to designate certain things I noticed that the "completed" and "failed" boxes display only those work units completed under that specific name. But, all of them show up under the "Tools-Work Unit History Viewer" drop down. Are your work units from that machine showing up in that display?

I've never changed the name of a slot. I often swap GPUs around physically. But creating a slot I let it do automatically.

Correction on my part. Have you renamed the client for any reason?

And are your work units currently showing up under the Work Unit History Viewer?

Not sure what you mean by renamed the client. The client is called "black" - it's windows network name and the label in HFM. I've never changed that.

I've never used the history viewer before. But when I looked just now, it stops on 30th June, for all computers. Could something have been corrupted where it keeps a log of how many were done? It's possible black's client was reinstalled and actually none of them have been reporting any work, I only noticed black because it's zero.

Correction, I see I complained about this a week before it stopped logging (black and others). So two anomalies that don't seem connected.

My logs stopped the same as yours have. I knew the HFM releases kept coming, but I had never updated it in a couple of years. So I updated to ver 9.28.1718.0 and everything was fine again. I let it auto update to the newest and it quit working. I reverted back to ver 9.28.1718.0 and everything is fine again, it just made me add the (in my case local) client again.

When my machine quit logging them in history, it would still show status and such in the display bars. I never noticed until I went to look at the history viewer. The slots showed up, and it showed which ones were folding. They just didn't log results.

A couple of people have mentioned bugs with certain versions. It might be worth trying a different version to the one you are currently running.

I'll just assume they're working. I have 7 PCs and I can't be bothered setting that up all over again. I mainly just use HFM to monitor and control what's running where.
