Re: [Condor-users] Question concerning BOINC backfill and condor

Title: Re: [Condor-users] Question concerning BOINC backfill and condor
Ok. I set up everything and I'm getting this error in the condor boinc log
8/17 14:15:27 Create_Process: CreateProcess failed, errno=5
8/17 14:15:27 ERROR "Create_Process(D:\Program Files\BOINC\boinc.exe,, ...) failed" at line 390 in file ..\src\condor_starter
What is errorno 5? Just a generic "failed process" error or is it something more specific?

condor is not yet smart enough to automatically talk to an existing 
BOINC service and dynamically add/remove resources from BOINC's 
control as needed.  so yes, for now, we recommend disabling the BOINC 
service and configuring the backfill stuff to spawn/kill BOINC, just 
like under unix.  same holds for folks using BOINC on macos via the 
startup items menu stuff.
