In the wrapper page, the link to pre-compiled version is very old, 2015. Seems that this wrapper is abandoned in favor of vboxwrapper (updated the last September).
Please, change links in the page (or close the page).
Also tha page of wmboxwrapper is very old and outdated

Had to look ESXi up to see what it was.


ESXi is the free version of enterprise virtualization from Vmware.

Post:
Is this something to do with the virtualisation? I know that benchmarks under WINE are I think about a quarter of what might be expected though you can get an accurate benchmark there by telling BOINC to use only one CPU, then manually running benchmarks from the manager after which you can let it use however many cpus it wants. I will have to look at my VB to see if it suffers the same issue.


I'm using ESXi

performance will always be (much) slower in a VM than when ran natively.


On the latest version of a Xeon Silver Core??

No whetstone or dhrystone.

Apps run correctly, nevertheless.

It was spoken in the Zoom workshop - so you'll be able to hear it, rather than read it.
In the recordings we can't access yet...

@boboviz
Another important information to include in your guide is that VM has to be activated in the BIOS of the computer in order to install WSL2. And how to do it.
As I imagen that the guide shall be used by less experienced Windows users like me – I never installed a VM machine or used PowerShell before – this is an important part missing in your guide. This step was not obvious to me!

Uh, my fault.
I will add that.

P.S. At the beginning of the guide i wrote that cpu must support virtualization...but you are right, i have to write this better.

Post:
I would like to ask: where, with which name and with which extension the file shall be saved?

geophi in the CPDN forum guided me to:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/wsl-config#configure-global-options-with-wslconfig
tells you to save the file .wslconfig (no extension), in your Windows user's root directory, i.e. C:\users\(user). Then restart WSL 2 and it will read the file upon restart and that should limit CPUs and RAM used in the VM.

and although still received the error, it worked as he indicated.


I'll add also this in a new version of the guide.
Thank you!

"For the most recent version of Boinc, the command is: boinc.exe -daemon -gui_rpc_port 2536"
Maybe this part is not translated in the english version of the guide....
Fear not, that post referred to a previous version of my English Translation. Your addition did make it to v0.8 English Translation on page 7


Oh, well, thank you!
