So I just installed Atlas into my BOINC installation and have Virtualbox installed and virtualization working. I even checked the firewall to confirm that the app and virtualbox can get out.

But I can't get BOINC to grab ATLAS projects on this PC nor drop them into VB and run them.

I got it working at work and I followed the same steps on this PC, but nothing. Is there a way I can force a download of a package or a log file I can look at to see if it is failing for some reason.

Appreciate the help:

I think I might of put this in the wrong forum. I thought this might be a preferences issue, but it doesn't seem like it is. I cannot get Atlas to work on this one PC. The Virtualbox is working, but BOINC will simply not download a work unit. Does anyone have some suggestions I can check to see where the issue might be?

Or a moderator please move this to a more appropriate forum?

Welcome , Mitchell Tuckness ,

you have to check if VT-X is enabled in your BIOS at first.
You have perhaps to remove Hyper V, too.(possible conflicts)

Here is a thread which relates some advices to do.

More detailed , here is the yeti's checklist.

Hope it helps you...
