Just noticed

New BOINC Client released 17.20.0 Windows 64-bit

Release notes at https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Release_Notes

Download from standard BOINC download page.

Note VM version is still 6.0.14 regardless of what download page says. And release date was not updated.

I just downloaded the (Windows 64bit) 7.16.20 version without Virtualbox from Boinc manager. It's an exe file. When running it complains about not being able to find the .msi file and I have to abort the installation.

What's the fix?
