I have enabled the virtual machine on my MOBO and reinstalled BOINC and VBox, but I am not getting any tasks. Boinc Mgr registers that I have Vbox installed.
But all I am getting is sixpack tasks. Before I upgraded my system to a whole new MOBO and processor I was getting Vbox tasks.
The value in the XML file is 0. So everything knows that Vbox is present, but does not give me any tasks that use Vbox. Computer was rebooted after installing Vbox.
Any ideas?

I have enabled the virtual machine on my MOBO ...

Do you mean, you enabled VT-x/AMD-V in your new BIOS?
You may double check points 2./4./5. of Yeti's checklist.

Which vbox subprojects are enabled in your LHC preferences?

I went through yetis list.
Checked the xml file and that was ok.
AMD-V is enabled. Will check once more. (SVM is enabled)
All applications are enabled.

your Computer shows under details
10 completed CMS-Tasks and 211 completed LHCb-tasks for the past.

That was probably before the motherboard change, wasn't it?

You may uncheck all subprojects except Theory (least resources request) to check if the project server's scheduler causes this behaviour.
Did you install the most recent VirtualBox version?

(Look at last 30 days), but that is due to me forgetting to install Vbox after having the system for awhile and then the Win10 upgrade that demolished a bunch of stuff.

Latest Vbox and Boinc are installed today.

Got to complete a few tasks. Still a few hours.
Changed to Theory only.

You will find that with 8GB ram on the 8-core you can run more Theory tasks than you can those CMS tasks at the same time since the CMS take more memory.

I only have Sixtrack and Theory enabled due to not having enough memory to successfully run the others. Recently I've also only been getting Sixtrack and very few Theory. I think they've been pushing Sixtrack resends to the front of the queue to clear the backlog.
A couple of Theorys have arrived this morning and that backlog looks to be nearly cleared.

I think that Sixtrack was overiding all the other tasks.
Since I disabled it and used Theory and Atlas and Alice I get vbox tasks now.
Thanks guys for the suggestions.

You may wonder why you don't get ALICE tasks.
This subproject is not yet active.

Ahh! well whenever it comes. Right now testing out runs of theory and Atlas. May toss some others in as well later and leave sixpack alone.
