    I was wondering why my points production had decreased lately. Apparently, Folding has been repetitively downloading the Core_65.fah file and never starts processing the work unit. I installed the latest version of Folding (v.5.02) and deleted the "work" directory. In Terminal, Folding displays the following:

    {
    - Calling './FahCore_65.exe -dir work/ -suffix 02 -checkpoint 15 -verbose -lifeline 3863 -version 502'

    Verifying core Core_65.fah...
    Signature is VALID

    Trying to unzip core FahCore_65.exe
    - Couldn't open file FahCore_65.exe
    + Error: Could not extract core
    + Core download error (#2), waiting before retry...
    }


    I deleted the original FahCore_65.exe file from the Folding@home directory and emptied the Folding work unit queue. It looks like there was a bad TINKER work unit in the queue, because the Core_65.fah file (TINKER) was extracted and the Gromacs core loaded after I tried again to run Folding. :confused: :cool:
