On both PCs I have jobs listed in the Transfers download column but I keep getting 'Download pending: project back off'

Any suggestions?

No suggestions, but I just aborted the one that was hung up for a few days on my system. I haven't had time to go search their forum, though.

I did the same a few days ago.
Seems it is a hang up problem in the delivery pipeline.
Just like life, promises a lot and delivers little.   ;D

I'd wait a while longer.
Every time an upload or download fails the back-off period will be extended.
It's by design, to prevent servers clogging up with requests after an outage.

If it still fails, the CPDN forum is where the knowledgable people are. :)

FYI:
Some BOINC projects use Oracle's VirtualBox software. When you install BOINC, you have the option of also installing VirtualBox.
However BOINC currently installs VirtualBox 5.0.18. This does not work with Windows 10.
I went to the Oracle site (https://www.virtualbox.org/) and downloaded VirtualBox 5.1.22. So far, at least, that is working fine.

I've had a small amount Stuart, but mostly I've been fighting diseases. Don't have it set up on my laptop at the moment, just the big desk computer  :-[

Unplanned Outage on Sunday, June 25
Jun 25, 2017 - We're experiencing an unplanned outage which initially affected our website as well as sending and receiving work units. Our tech team is working to fix the issue, and we will add updates to this article regularly.

Thanks for all your support,

The outage has been over since yesterday. But it was pretty awful while it lasted.
Details are in the forum thread linked in the article.

Anybody had CPDN units lately? I have only 2 in the last few months.

It's been hit or miss for some time now, but I usually manage to have one running on one of the machines.

I've only had 4 this month, but I had 13 last month.
I run lots of World Community Grid, Rosetta, Einstein@Home, and other projects too.

CPDN doesn't have many tasks available.
You can check the project status for availability of tasks.
https://www.cpdn.org/cpdnboinc/server_status.php

There's a small problem though, when it says there are 27 tasks ready to send, there are in fact no tasks available.

New tasks available. :D
Compared to the number of users, not many though.
