Hi All...

I would like to ask your advise about Virtual Box + BOINC, is there anyone of you found difficulties while using this program? I downloaded it but I haven't run it yet on my PC. Any advise for me? since I read the information that stated, "Warning: this project is under heavy testing, so (rarely) some running work units may get cancelled by the project in order to introduce a new version of the virtual machine." http://lhcathome.web.cern.ch/LHCathome/Physics/

Worked fine for me. They update the VM occasionally and it updates things on your machine, all gone fairly smoothly provided you follow the instructions. If all else fails there's a forum that's good.

Hi DC,

I finally ran that program few hours ago and I didn't find any difficulties to use it :D
I received a job and now still in progress.
