I have win 10 PC i7 32Gb mem and have Virtualbox 5.2.8.

But have never received any tasks. I do see there are no tasks to send out atm but there are a lot in progress.

I guess it is all CPU tasks and none for GPU. My projects preferences does have CPU tasks ticked.

Do I need to load an OS in Virtualbox?

I am not really sure how Virtualbox gets used for the virtualisation.

Just now I see there is an update to take Virtualbox to ver 6. Will this still be compatible for the project?

Just be patient. Tasks are not always available immediately.

If you loaded Boinc with VBox that's all you need.

And yes ver 6.0.1.2 of VirtualBox does work as there are people using it and getting credits

Not all Projects do though so Boinc loads VirtualBox ver 5.2.8 and that is working for me.
