After many years of running BOINC I still am frustrated by its settings for task or project priority. For example, my Resource Share for SRBase is 100 and the Resource Share for Nanosurface is 75. The SRBase tasks are Riesel Base Short with an estimated run time on this Windows 7 PC of 49 seconds and a task deadline date of 11 July 2016 at 07:14am. The Nanosurface tasks' deadline is 18 July 2016 at 10:07am and the estimated run time is 3hrs 8 minutes.

Why is BOINC 7.6.22 allowing all of the Nanosurface tasks to run and not allowing any of the SRBase tasks to run?

Is there another setting I need to alter so that SRBase gets priority?

You should set SRBase to 1000, nano to 0
