Trying to add the project to a new computer.

I select Universe, click next where it says 'communicating with Project'

I then get 'Failed to add Project try again later'

I never get to the prompt for new/existing user'

I have tried this over several days.

Other projects are adding just fine.

Anyone have any ideas no this?

Thanks

Probably a SSL certification problem with the client. Try the new client here. https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.16.20_windows_x86_64.exe

I have the same problem but I'm not trying to add this project to a new computer. I run this project on this PC before but delete it. Now I can't add it back. Why? There's no problem adding it to Andriod devices. Maybe sth to do with the OS? It's still running on WinXP.

Is your BOINC version 7.16.20?
If not, please update and the problem should go away.

@jackielan2000. Is that 32 bit or 64 bit Win XP? Universe@Home on Windows is 64 bit only.

Ok, it's 32bit XP.

Hi,
as the subject has been raised, i take this as a chance to express myself :)
well, it's the same for me. I did not use my crunching PC for a while and i was told by BOINC that the universe address has changed so i removed the project
Now, i cannot add it : it says FAILED TO ADD PROJECT

I'm also using XP64 SP 2 and BOINC 7.12.1 .

I know there are new versions, but it's not clearly said that they work with XP64, i also changed the CA (certificate for older version without success (for example Milkyway@home and Cosmolgy@home are working fine);

Any interesting advices?
thank you
Best

I had to upgrade to the latest Version in order to add Universe@home to my systems.
You could try manually entering the URL & see if that works with the older Manager.
