BOINC version 7.16.20 (x64)
Windows 10 Home
BOINC is installed as a service

I have 5 machines running BOINC for several years.
I had been running World Community Grid and Rosetta@home on all machines with 50% allocated to each project.
Since WCG went down for transfer from IBM to Krembil, only one of the machines has been getting any new work at all, and the machine that is getting work is the least resourced of the set.
I understand that WCG is still not putting out much work - I have removed that project until it seems to be back to full function.
I believe I should be getting work from Rosetta@home.
On the problem machines, I have tried resetting the project, removing and re-adding the project and completely re-installing BOINC.
None of these efforts have restored work and I'm beginning to feel like a slacker - I need to put these machines to work.
I have attached, below, a copy of the log from one of the problem machines.
Can anyone suggest what to do to get things running again?

WCG is slowly restarting and a few test WUs are being sent out.

Rosetta has mostly moved to Python based WUs which require VBox, lots of RAM, lots of disk space and quite a bit of setting up - also, any failed WUs are likely to cause your host to be blacklisted with more work required to switch the feed back on. You need to go to the Rosetta website for details of how to configure your system for this.

You’ve been unfortunate in your choice of projects, you might like to look for additional sources of work until these sort themselves out.

For Rosetta, 99.9% of tasks sent by project requires your computers to have VirtualBox installed (this one does) and Rosetta also requires 10GB or more free space in BOINC (this one appears OK on space).

YOU ALSO HAVE TO ENABLE REQUEST THOSE TYPE OF TASKS ON EACH COMPUTER/DEVICE INDIVIDUALLY.

To do this click on blue link view to right of "Computers on this account".
Find the computer you want to change in your list.
Scroll down almost to bottom where it says VirtualBox VM jobs click on blue/red button that says allow.
Repeat for any other computers you want VirtualBox jobs for Rosetta.
Go to each computer changed, open BOINC, swich to Project tab and highlight Rosetta on Project list and on left side menu click on refresh button to get new settings.
------

These three settings may also interfere with BOINC Running / Getting work.

World Community Grid (WCG) is still a work in progress to get it back fully operational. Some test work is sent on occasion. If you get a message that it is using wrong URL... DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING. WCG still in testing phase. The correct URL FOR NOW IS http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/

Try adding einstein, LHC, Cosmology, Gaia, and Universe@home.

Most of my units are running Universe@home right now.
