Hello wise ones. I can't download any new tasks for any projects and don't know where to start to fault find. Any basic help would be appreciated.

PC is a VPS Windows server 2019

have these projects installed:

climateprediction.net
minecrafthome
WGC (I know this is currently suspended)
Rosetta@home (received a message that VB is needed for this and hardware acceleration is not supported on my server)

Climate is out of work and has not had any Windows work for over a year

Minecraft is down

WCG is out for 2 months (until the end of April) whilst they transfer to new servers

Rosetta - normal jobs are in short supply and often fail when a batch does come in. They are mainly concentrating on their new Python tasks which require VirtualBox, huge amounts of RAM and hammer the disk.

CPDN is out of work for all platforms currently. Recently, Windows users have had work only by using WSL or by installing MacOS in a VM. No hints about new work for any platforms though as there has been no movement on two of the three task types that have been on and off the server for a week now. The other for Mac has had some tasks complete but nothing said about when results move to main site if at all.
