Windows application is in beta. Did you check the "test application" in tour preferences ?

I confirm : it remains NWChem long tasks. The scheduler manage both "nwchem" and "nwchem long" WU. It seems that the mix is not well balanced...

Yes, "test application" is checked. The latest version of VirtualBox (6.1.14) has been installed since my last post, but things are still not right. A small work unit has tried to run at least twice, for about 20 seconds, then this log entry:

9/25/2020 2:32:39 AM | QuChemPedIA@home | Task cl9_athome_b3lyp-321gd,batch074,000741613,nwchem,1600161908_1 postponed for 86400 seconds: Communication with VM Hypervisor failed.

Thoughts on how to proceed?

I'm a linux user... People advice si usually : quit Boinc and relaunch. Windows application (virtualbox wrapper to be precise) is very unstable
