The development team have advised that all volunteers should do a project reset. They feel that this may cure the problems that Ben and Yeti have seen lately:

Please can you ask all volunteers to do a project reset. Ben had an issue
for a while and it was solved by a project reset. I think it was due to the
match making and the disk drive size. Although we updated the app, if they
download the old image (which didn't change) and it was initially set up
with 10 GB the app update may not automatically result in the disk expanding
to 20GB.

Sorry Ivan, the project reset did indeed allow me to get going again after the Condor introduction, but the problem I now have with suspend/resume blocking progress is since that reset.

Okay, I resetted my Laptop, let it download again, let it start crunching again up to 49 Events.

Suspended BOINC and then shut down the Laptop.

Restarted again, BOINC starts, VM starts:

Finaly I see:



All Screens are empty, no reaction on ALT + Fx

One VBoxHeadless.exe using a full core

When upgrading to boinc 7.6.6, will it let the v-box (upgraded to 5.0.2) alone or will it force downgrading to v-box 4.3.12, that comes with boinc?

You can download the Version without V-Box, it is directly the second link, a Little bit easy to overlook
