194 (0x000000C2) EXIT_ABORTED_BY_CLIENT

Before me: 1 (0x00000001) Unknown error code
Before them: -2135228404 (0x80BB000C) Unknown error code

And then this (I am the first, it is being resent): https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=406297248 Same thing...aborted by client

Really? Come on.....

You are getting the same error that I have been seeing for the past several days, on every Theory task:

VBoxManage.exe: error: Cannot attach medium 'D:\data\projects\lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome\Theory_2023_12_13.vdi': the media type 'MultiAttach' can only be attached to machines that were created with VirtualBox 4.0 or later

See, for example, https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/result.php?resultid=406303951

I have set LHC to "No new tasks" until the current batch of CMS tasks are all finished. Then I'm going to remove LHC and add it back into my client, to see if that might get rid of the error. I'm not holding my breath, but who knows?

Yellow Triangle in Virtualbox program?
VBoxManage: error: Cannot close medium '/var/lib/boinc/projects/lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome/Theory_2023_12_13.vdi' because it has 2 child media

Today they are all clean.
There needs to be a debugger that checks the code before they release them, that was a waste of computing power and time.

However, look at the last entries in the VM trace log:

Command: VBoxManage -q unregistervm "boinc_be4d931171c5cdf6" --delete 
Exit Code: 0
Output:
0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100%

18:26:06 (16682): called boinc_finish(-2135228404)

It looks like termination with extreme prejudice. I never see the tasks until they've been shut down and are waiting to be reported.

I reset the project, then tried a few Theory tasks. No luck, they still fail with the same error.

In your tasks:
Command:
VBoxManage -q closemedium "/var/lib/boinc/projects/lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome/Theory_2023_12_13.vdi" 
Output:
VBoxManage: error: Cannot close medium '/var/lib/boinc/projects/lhcathome.cern.ch_lhcathome/Theory_2023_12_13.vdi' because it has 2 child media
When it cannot close the medium, it will also not open it. The problem is not with BOINC, but VirtualBox.
You have to use VirtualBox Manager to solve your problem. See https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=6112&postid=49574,

but instead of the CMS-vdi, remove Theory_2023_12_13.vdi, but don't delete the file itself.

That seems to have done it. When I looked in Tools/Media I found there were 2 orphaned Theory tasks listed under the .vdi file -- I assume those were the 2 child media the log referred to.
The Theory .vdi couldn't be removed from the VB manager until those were gone.
Thanks for the detailed reply. I would never have found this without it.
