Has anyone else noticed issues whenever trying to allow Atlas tasks on their Mac?
Ive tried limited just the single core tasks also with no success.
Virtual Machine is also installed and works correctly for any other Project that uses it.

macOS Sierra
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 1024 MB
Memory: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Processor: 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7

- Being _very new_ to running VB & Atlas, I haven't had any issues. I'm still trying to learn/configure VB for optimal use ( as I had just guessed & took defaults during the install from oracle.) - I generally use VMFusion.

In answer to your question - According to BOING Mgr, I've had 80 completed tasks and 2 failed.

Question - Where are you seeing the 'issues' when you try to allow Atlas tasks?
- console messages? onscreen? - I'd be glad to check to see If I have anything showing up . Again I don't have a lot experience with VB & Atlas. But I can stare & compare!


current setup is:
macOS Sierra ( 10.12.2 Beta 4)
Processor 3.1 i5
memory 32GB DDR3
Graphics AMD Radeon 6970M 1024MB

According to the Oracle VM virtual Box Manager
Running 64-bit
base memory is 10173 MB
Acceleration is VT-x/AMD-V, Nested Paging, PAE/NX, minimal Paravirtualization
