GPU2 client doesn't work with CAT 8.5

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Recently I updated my drivers from 8.4 to 8.5, and afterwards the GPU2 client stopped working. It keeps repeating an error like so:

[20:40:15] + Processing work unit
[20:40:15] Core required: FahCore_11.exe
[20:40:15] Core found.
[20:40:15] Working on Unit 08 [May 25 20:40:15]
[20:40:15] + Working ...
[20:40:19] CoreStatus = FFFFFFFF (-1)
[20:40:19] Client-core communications error: ERROR 0xffffffff
[20:40:19] Deleting current work unit & continuing...
[20:40:23] - Preparing to get new work unit...
[20:40:23] + Attempting to get work packet
[20:40:23] - Connecting to assignment server
[20:40:23] - Successful: assigned to (171.64.65.103).
[20:40:23] + News From Folding@Home: GPU folding beta
[20:40:23] Loaded queue successfully.
[20:40:24] + Closed connections

Then it 'sleeps'. The client worked fine until the new drivers, and continues to have this same error after reinstaling the client.

Probably going to have to go back to 8.4's until a new version of the GPU2 client is released.

Cat v8.5 should work in Vista, but is known to NOT work in XP.

Either go back to v8.4 for XP, or wait a day or two for the next beta rev of the GPU2 client, which should have updated .dlls to work with v8.5 for all Windows.
