There are many other worthy BOINC projects that you can contribute your CPU & GPU resources to that have Windows apps.

For a list of "official" BOINC projects click here to see what projects have what type of apps and descriptions of each one.

The following 3 projects almost always have CPU work available.

World Community Grid currently has 4 active and 2 intermittent CPU sub-projects. The OpenPandemics - COVID-19 sub-proj also has a GPU application.

ROSETTA has CPU only apps, including a VirtualBox app that has occasional work.

SiDock@home has CPU only apps.

Sounds like possibly a FIREWALL and/or ANTIVIRUS/ANTI-MALWARE program is blocking the proper operating of BOINC.

What such programs do you have actively running on your Win 10 PC?

'Remote Desktop" does NOT interfere with VirtualBox, it interferes with use of the Graphical Procesing Unit GPU in BOINC.

There are several good FREE remote desktop applications for Windows and Linux that allow you to control your PC as if you were sitting at the physical keyboard/monitor depending on if you need to learn the sound or not from the remote PC.

For Windows to/from Windows: Windows to/from Linux or Windows to/from Android I use ANYDESK[/url because it supports remote sound playback.

If I don't need remote sound I use [url=https://tightvnc.com/download.html]TIGHT VNC
for Windows to Windows use.

So..............now can we report BOINC@TACC :/ ?

It is NOT a dead project, just that work on the BOINC platform is extremely rare;
Maybe even more rare than hens teeth.

When the project was first launched, they made it clear there was not going to be "regular, daily work flow".

According to data at BOINCstats the last time the project granted any credit was on 2021-09-06 ... about 2 months ago.

There is a small subset of projects on BOINC don't have work on a regular basis.

Edit to fix some typos.
