DO NOT USE VIRTUALBOX v5.1.0 on 1.17-or-earlier apps!
IT WILL MAKE THOSE TASKS FAIL!!
I did a test of the new VirtualBox v5.1.0, and ... it made my "cmsearch VM (VirtualBox) 1.0.2 1.17 (vbox64)" task immediately go to "Computation Error". In fact, I stupidly wasn't doing an offline test with a copy of my data folder, and so ... I actually LOST that task (and the 9 days of work it had done). Could have been worse, sure, but entirely preventable, and frustrating!
The text on the front page currently reads:
I believe it should be changed to read:Use the most-recent version of VirtualBox. Note: If you have 1.15-or-earlier tasks, you must use VirtualBox 4.3.x.
So, if you only have 1.17 tasks, I recommend using VirtualBox v5.0.24 at this time.- WARNING: VirtualBox 5.1.x is NOT COMPATIBLE currently, and will crash your tasks!
- If you have 1.15-or-earlier tasks, you must use VirtualBox 4.3.x or earlier.
- If you have 1.17 tasks, you must use VirtualBox 5.0.x or earlier.
The error I got, with VirtualBox v5.1.0, is pasted here.

Perhaps Christian or Michael could find more info.
I also suggest they issue a "News" item regarding this info.
