Are you on Mac, Windows, or Linux?

Normally, VirtualBox is installed as part of Charity Engine.  In a small number of cases, for a variety of reasons, this does not work.  Plan B is to try to install manually:

https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/5.2.32/VirtualBox-5.2.32-132073-Win.exe

If this also does not work for you, can you post back with any specific error?

(*FYI: Without VirtualBox your computer will be able to support a narrower subset of computing tasks, but it'll still be quite productive. So if the install doesn't succeed, or if you don't want to get into it, that's ok.)

I realize I may have misunderstood your question, so let me also note: VirtualBox provides a standardized and higher-security environment for the computations run on your device.  It also enables us to make our platform much easier to use by people who want to use the computing capacity within our network.
