I am using this machine for other projects without issues so this is something specific to Cosmology.

Any ideas as to what is happening?

Thanks

Hi,

Foe some time now I have been getting new WU's for Cosmology@home & they all run for 9 seconds & fail with a computation error?

I have the latest version of BOINCManager for MacOS, the latest version of MacOS, & the latest version of VirtualBox. I've checked & Virtualization is enabled in the BIOS.

I have an I9 MacBook Pro from 2019, 2.4 Gig of memory, with 8 Cores & an AMD Radeon Pro Vega with 4 Gig, plus the built-in Intel Video.

This problem has been going on for awhile, but before it started, I had no problems with the WU's.

I have limited the number of CPU's per a suggestion I saw, but that didn't help. I've seen a suggestion to downgrade VirtualBox to an earlier version, but haven't tried that yet.

Are there any other suggestions?

Thanks,

I know nothing about Macs, but I wonder whether you have updated your OS beyond compatibility.
They have not updated their apps for quite some time.
