I see that there are WU's available. I have yet to ever receive any WU's since I signed up on Aug 8th, 2012. Is there a problem? I've checked my work fetch debug setting and apparently it says I have no apps. And checking the actual BOINC directory apparently I haven't downloaded any apps to run the project on. How do I force an app download?

How do I force an app download?


There are 2 ways: easy way and hard way

1) Go to the project home page, click the Applications link, if there is no Windows app in the list then proceed to step 2 otherwise update Asteroids@home in BOINC manager

2) Go to the Windows application thread, check all the whining about the lack of Windows app, note the whining hasn't done any good so far, ponder whether more whining will speed things up

3) If you decide whining is the best way to proceed then whine, wait 3 days, go back to step 1. If you prefer an easier way then proceed to step 4

4) Go to An easy Windows solution thread, check how easy it is to install a virtual Linux box on your Windows computer, install it, crunch some Asteroids tasks
