I've been with LHC since 2005. I was also granted access to LHCDEV.

My problem: I haven't received any work for months. Coming up on almost a year, as a matter of fact.

I don't understand why not and am not sure what to do.

Can any of you bright young crunchers give me a clue.

Please.

I haven't been to able to jump into this not because I'm not interested - I assure you all I am! But I'm trying to rebuild myself after a heart attack that snuck up on me and smacked me while I was still recovering from the death of my beloved wife of 56 years. Frankly, I'm lucky to be alive.

Most important:
Focus on your health.
Projects like the one here are much less important.



Run this command in an elevated command window:
bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Then reboot.

Also recommended:
Update VirtualBox to the most recent version:

First, thank you for your help. Even though I wasn't successful, I am grateful.

The link you were kind enough to provide started off easily enough, but in only a matter of a handful of screens, it dragged me down another of Microsoft's infamous endless rabbit holes.

I have neither the patience nor the ability to follow the White Rabbit into Alice's Wonderland anymore.

Again, thank you. I am grateful.
