Hi there,
no more WUs since Sunday 11-Aug-2019, finished many SixTrack WUs till then without VirtualBox - what happened?
Is there a (new) need for VirtualBox for SixTrack WUs too?
Best regards

SixTrack does not need VirtualBox.
The error message is misleading but it looks like it can't be switched off as long as LHC@home has other subprojects that require VirtualBox.

Just ignore the error message if you only run SixTrack.

Ok, thank you, will now wait for any upcoming SixTrack WU - they stopped feeding me last sunday :(
Status in BOINC Manager shows me trying to get WU by user request - still got none.
Waiting...
Best regards

According to the project's status page there are (nearly) no SixTrack tasks available.
This happens from time to time and your host will automatically get fresh work as soon as there are tasks available and your client's buffer is not filled with other projects.
