It seems that the BOINC client can't pull the settings from Scienceunited.
I'm from Munich/Germany.
Does anyone also have issue pulling settings from Scienceunited?

I also seem to be having a similar problem.
I get "Failed to add account manager..." on mu PC's running Windows 10,
but on raspberrypi running Linux it does update.
Any ideas?

I am trying to add a new device to Science Unlimited, but I get 'Failed to add account manager". Checked several other devices and they failed also.

Has anyone had an answer to this question? I've been having the same issue for a while now.

Look in the News folder for the entry mentioning Windows communication problem with BOINC-that might be the fix.

Solution works, at least for the HTTP problem we've all been reporting. See David Anderson's post from 10/5 (https://scienceunited.org/forum_thread.php?id=348). It involves updating a certificate file in the BOINC program directory with an unexpired one.

The only project that works on my computer is Einstein. Science United fails to add to BONIC along with many other projects. I tried the repair option and reinstalled BONIC and that did not work. Did anyone found a solution?

The security certificate in BONIC needs updating. This is why we could not connect to SU. Go to the BOINC website and look to the right for the replacement certificate.
