It seems there are no checkpoints. BoincTasks didn't count checkpoints and after restarting of Boinc the WUs are starting from the beginning.

Checkpoints are every 10min. Check the entry in the ini file or the entry in stderr.txt

But no value shows up in the "CPU time at last checkpoint" in the properties window of a task. And when BOINC is shut down and restart, the elapsed time starts from 0 again. Is it the problem of BOINC Manager? I am running version 7.4.27 (x64).

Hmm, I have tested it before and it has restarted from the last endpoint. I will try to run a test again with a last number.

Edit:
The checkpointing is still working but the client resets the time back to 0. I will see what time is reported at the end. The only way to save the credits is to go to fixed credits in this situation.

Here is a snippet of the stderr.txt

yes the app does write checkpoints and picks them up when restarted.

and no - the silly wrapper of course does not pick up the time elapsed already.

SNAFU.
