I am aware they return nothing bu errors. Have asked what the problem is but no one replied.
When you have VBox installed, deselect 'Run native if available' in your preferences.

I set all preference boxes to what seemed the most liberal. Now you're saying the user interface requires me to NO allow different kinds of tasks in order to get available tasks? What's wrong with this picture?

'native' means that you prefer to get 'native'-tasks and no VBox-tasks.
Since your native ones all error out, do the opposite, when you have VBox installed.

Dang. That is illogical. If that's how the UI guys interpret this, then there needs to be TWO flags for this: 1 for allow native, and a second for allow vbox work. And just why are those two types of tasks separate anyway? No one needs to fool with all those flags. Have the executable work on all, regardless.

Hi!
I got the same message:
"LHC@home: Notice from server
VirtualBox is not installed"

I run Linux natively. I suppose I don't need VB. Ubuntu 18.04/18.10/20.04 64 bit, with 64/128GB SSD, and 16/32GB of RAM (multi system).
