I just attempted to upgrade the BOINC mgr with VirtualBox and had significant issues with the install. It was repeatedly having difficulty locating and reading the previous install. Many attempts at manually deleting all related files was unscuccessful as well as cleaning out the registry of related values. I then followed the steps outlined on the help section, and ultimately followed the steps to download the FixIt program from Microsoft. It states in the Help section that this program will not work with Win 10, but I downloaded and ran it anyway. It worked great. I downloaded the prior version of BOINC and then followed the upgrade steps to the new version and all worked fine.
Just info for anyone having the same issue.
