I am using Mac(s), I installed those agents inside virtualbox and it is okay for many months without any problem.

However it seem didn't connect to *.agents.mql5.com anymore since Feb 17, so it won't get jobs from mql5 network anymore.

anyone know what's the problem?

ML 0 Startup 01:13:10 access rights to common directory successfully checked

the os installed in virtualbox is windows xp(32bits) & windows 7 64bits, both not work after Feb 17, but it still work if I using bootcamp and run native windows in those Mac.

Unfortunetaly it's no more available I think :

MetaTester: Added prohibition for using testing agents working on virtual OS in MQL5.Cloud.

From here, pt.19.

Man, it's not worth it! You have to go as native as you can, providing agents ineffectively is bad idea:

1. Not fast enough.

2. Eats electricity more vs work have done via low efficiency.

I do understand why they prohibit running that in virtual machine... but I really need to stick in osx because most of my app run in osx.

 I just think that the performance of my 8-core macpro with 16GB ram run in VM is still much better than performance of my old mac mini 1.8GHz run natively.

 so I would hope that they limit the program run in low performance rather than just run in VM.

 haha.. may be I am asking too much... really hope there will have native osx client later.... I am still learning how to program this.
