I found a solution at VirtualBox (but can't find the link again)
it looks like there is sometimes an issue while installing/updating the VBoxDrv over an existing Installation

Stop Boinc and VirtualBox
from C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\drivers\vboxdrv
you should install "VBoxDrv.inf"
Restart the computer

After this Cosmolagy VM tasks run again on my machines.

up to 3 min the progress bar stays at 0%, when i returned at 6 min the progress bar has round 7%.

Restart of boinc not tested yet.

Just to update you. This is looking like a bug in the BOINC Client as a user on SHA-1 reported a similar problem when their server went down. It looks like 5.10.28 is giving up on uploading the output files after 2 days instead of the 2 weeks it is supposed to wait. I have posted a bug report to Berkley.
Dave


Hello Dave,
where do you post the Bug?
Can you post an link to your thread here?

I\'ve posted an Thread at Boinc core client too. See first message of this thread.

Thanks
