Your NV drivers are too old for the new app. Also, my 670 won't run WUs after the new app update. :-(

They're too old for the v9.18 cuda80 app, but I haven't seen any statement that the same restriction needs to apply to the replacement 'for one year only' v8.49 cuda65 app. Possibly that one needs to be re-checked in the cold light of day.

Maybe the reason my 670 now won't work is that it's in a machine with a 750Ti. BOINC lists it improperly on the site as:

>> [2] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti (2048MB) driver: 381.65

That can't be true because one of my PC's has got work with same driver.

It is true but now I edited the quoted post and explained in the new post just above. Since you have only the 660Ti in that box it wouldn't be affected. If it was paired with something newer you would see the problem. I believe that it's similar to the problem we used to have running 10xx GPUs with anything older. :-(

All my machines running the 359.06 drivers received the "no work available" message until I updated the drivers. After updating they all received work (excepting the 670 GPU of course, which now errors the WUs).
