The instructions say I have to run it and I go to the indicated web page to get the installation (http://lhcathome.web.cern.ch/Common/join-us) and this is what happens...

The requested page "/Common/join-us" could not be found.

I'm pretty sure I already have VM installed, but I'm getting "No Tasks Sent". It has been a while since I've run Virtualbox, so I thought it might be out of date... No way I can tell. I have searched here in the forums and I find lots of other problems with it, but no where is there seemingly a concise direction as to what to do to get started or install or upgrade. Just lots of focused discussion about the problem at hand.

Thanks

Hi Psiberman ,

did you check in your account preferences,

if the amount of ram available for boinc is enough (at least 3 GBytes for single core application ,so at least more of 75% of your 4GBytes Ram)

if the disk place for boinc projects is higher than 10 GByte to be secure

if you have allowed the single-core applications to be run

if you have an always-on net wire...

and above all check if VT-X is enabled on your bios.

last version :

boinc : 7.6.33
virtualbox : 5.1.14
