Under Driver 378.66 the below BOINC GPU Task fail to run I think it is do to this file. (nvcuda.dll Version: 6.14.13.7866)
Collatz Conjecture https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/result.php?resultid=127500521
Einstein @ Home https://einsteinathome.org/task/618768144
SETI @ home
Moo! Wrapper http://moowrap.net/result.php?resultid=53505322
MilkyWay @ home http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=1987515968
Asteroids @ home seems to be the Only GPU BOINC Task to run on Driver 378.66
I ran every BOINC GPU Project other then GPUGRID because I could not get a task and only Asteroids would run on my GTX Titan GPUs.
Amicable Numbers now fail as well, this all stated after I ran one Set of MilkyWay.
 
So I reinstalled the Drivers and I am back working but I dare not run MilkyWay ATM.

    Same issue runs one set of MilkyWay then quits.

    Not sure why this driver is an issue, I game on my Titan Rig and only run BOINC once a month and I have updated driver 2 times since the last time I ran BOINC. Any way I am on Driver 373.06 on all my Windows Computers now.
    For what Games I have they all run fine on Driver 373.06.

    Looks like NVIDIA knew about the CUDA & OpenCL Problem as was fixed in Driver Version 378.78
    I have Not Tested to see if this was Fixed.

    Funny, I had no issues with the 378.66 driver on Collatz. Yet when I updated to the 378.78 driver I got 30 with "Error while computing" all right in a row. Then one passed with no issue. I'm going to let it run while I am out and about today running errands. Just to see if it continues to put out Errors or not.

    The Drivers are getting Odd at best now a days.
    Looks like I will be running Driver 373.06 for a very long time.

    Well I made it home and checked up on Collatz. I have now completed and have verified 8 more tasks. So it seems what ever the problem was that caused those 30 tasks to fail was fixed by a reboot of my system after I noticed them. I wonder if the current drivers are picky on just what hardware you are using. I'm running a 1070 and I wonder if there might be an issue with the older generation of GPU's and these drivers.

    From what I recall the issue was only on GTX 9xx Cards and the First GTX Titan.
    But I am good now so we will have to wait and see. But I test this new Driver today on my Titan Rig and post back.
