I wasted time writing a fotran message polling loop to catch the

output files.

I suspect that the issues Derek mentioned are more pertinent, but I
should also point out that in 6.6.6 (and 6.7.2) there is a bug that
occurs in Windows XP and Windows 2000 SP2 and above that causes console
apps to be undetectable by Condor, so Condor never gets the chance to
send the WM_CLOSE. This is fixed, and will work properly in the next

For now, you can either give your application a WinMain() function
(instead of main(), so that Condor can find the application's window), or
just have your job periodically checkpoint itself.

Is there any point in doing this ? If files are only staged back if the
job runs to completion then only the results need to be saved just before
completion (if there's sufficient memory).  Saved state information
cannot be transferred back if the jobs is killed and is of no use once
the job has run to completion.
