I am getting projects being downloaded that i have not selected. An example. The Riesel problem. I am not sure what could be causing this.

Check your preferences, the last line "Send work from any subproject if selected projects have no work" should be set to "no".

Thats the most likely reason.

You have three computers, and you correctly set up three separate venues, home, work, and sun. It's the Windows 10 Xeon computer on the home venue where you're having the problem, correct?

You currently have "home" configured like this:

CPU: enabled Nvidia GPU: enabled GCW Sieve: CPU AP27: Nvidia GPU PPS Sieve: Nvidia GPU Send other work if now work is available: Yes


The problem is that GCW-Sieve is SHUT DOWN and has no work available. Since that's the only CPU project you have selected, and you have "Send other work" turned on, the server is (randomly) selecting other CPU jobs for you.

Select another CPU job for the "home" venue. If you are unsure which project to select, I would recommend 321-Sieve. It's the most similar to GCW-Sieve.

Please do not PM me with support questions. Ask on the forums instead. Thank you!
