my win 10 intel nuc was still running 7.6.33 fine then :

updating to :
7.8.2 : not launching boinc.exe : list of project empty when doing "add project"
I lost all my work and projects (no big deal)

then I tried to install back boinc 7.6.33
now I get the list of projects populated but all project say : Failed to add project, please try again later, Click Finish to close. (that after entering password) All projects say that.

installed BOINC NOT as a Service.

tried with AND without virtual box.

tried asteroids, seti, einstein, rosetta, ibercivis.

my other macs and pcs run 7.8.2 perfect.

Alex.

Doubtful you lost all work, but when the client (boinc.exe) doesn't start, BOINC Manager (boincmgr.exe) won't be able to show you any of that.

then I tried to install back boinc 7.6.33
now I get the list of projects populated but all project say : Failed to add project, please try again later, Click Finish to close. (that after entering password) All projects say that.

Did you uninstall 7.8.2?
Did you change the data directory's path?
When you go with Windows Explorer to C:\Programdata\BOINC, can you tell me what's there?
No need to get a complete list of files, but are there for instance account_*.xml files for the projects you mention?
Did you use an account manager (BAM! or GridRepublic) on the previous installation?

I did uninstall and then tried download and install 7.8.3
Same result, Boinc.exe lanches and quits. Manager then can't do anything.

Check in Windows Event Viewer what possible error message boinc.exe gets when it exits.
Or check in stderrdae.txt in your data directory.
Or check in stdoutdae.txt in your data directory.

You did check that you got the correct BOINC version in?
I mean, if you ran 32bit before, that you now have 32bit again, or if you ran 64bit before that you now have 64bit again?
For instance, Windows does not allow 64bit programs to run from the 32bit C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder, although it may allow them to install there...
