virtual box is installed and latest version.

LHC@home is using it without any issues however Atlas in event log keeps saying virtualbox not installed? is there a fix or work around or a change in settings to have it work?

TheTruthisOutThere,

All of the tasks that you successfully completed at LHC@home are Sixtrack tasks which do not use VirtualBox.

You should work your way through this checklist to see if it will help you locate your issue.

i did go through the check box i don't have the boinc 64 bit thou as i cant find a way to upgrade the boinc version within the community grid the way they modified everything is incredibly retarded. and i thought some LHC tasks use VM. I thought it didnt matter if boinc was 32 bit or 64 bit as it doesnt process the data itself. 32bit version still could run the 64 bits tasks without issues from what ive read up. wonder if i can have two boincs running on one computer or i may just have to ditch community grid completely

so logs said

20-Dec-2016 01:54:03 [---] VirtualBox version: 5.0.18

croped quite a bit of useless stuff out

20-Dec-2016 23:12:30 [LHC@home] VirtualBox is not installed
22-Dec-2016 18:59:17 [ATLAS@home] VirtualBox is not installed

so boinc detects virtualbox without a porblem but not the tasks? virtualbox is 64 bit

Do not depend on the WCG boinc version. It's hopeless old and not able to run the VM-tasks from several VM-based projects.

Download the recommended version here: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/boinc_7.6.33_windows_x86_64.exe

Stop BOINC
Uninstall the WCG 7.2.47 version
Install the recommended 7.6.33 version
