Windows host-only adapter creation fails due to slow background processing

Reported by: Yirkha Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: network/hostif
Version: VirtualBox 5.0.0 Keywords: win10
Cc: Guest type: all
Host type: Windows

Description

I was debugging why Xamarin Android Player could not prepare a VM for me and determined the failure to be in the host-only adapter creation, isolating the problem to this:

C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\>VBoxManage.exe hostonlyif create
0%...
Progress state: E_FAIL
VBoxManage.exe: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter
VBoxManage.exe: error: Code E_FAIL (0x80004005) - Unspecified error (extended info not available)
VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "int __cdecl handleCreate(struct HandlerArg *,int,int *)" at line 66 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp

After some time spent in the debugger, I've found the real error to be CO_E_CLASSSTRING (Invalid class string), naturally returned by some CLSIDFromString() API call. Interestingly enough, the input GUID string contained garbage only.

Further debugging revealed a data race in VBoxNetCfgWinCreateHostOnlyNetworkInterface(). By the time RegQueryValueExW(..., "NetCfgInstanceId", ...) is called, the network device might still not be fully constructed by another process and this registry value might not be present yet. Because the result of this operation is effectively ignored, the program silently continues and the function fails only later due to the GUID being invalid.

A proof from Process Monitor - it took the system ~0.4 seconds more to write the value:

03:11:01.9426053	VBoxSVC.exe	15024	RegQueryValue	HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0018\NetCfgInstanceId	NAME NOT FOUND	Length: 144
03:11:02.3592881	svchost.exe	1140	RegSetValue	HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0018\NetCfgInstanceId	SUCCESS	Type: REG_SZ, Length: 78, Data: {F4CCBF3A-4C8B-4FE7-A659-725C3DF52E69}

Waiting in the debugger for a while before the RegQueryValueExW() call helped and I was able to create host-only network adapters fine.

Setting as priority minor because:

  • it happened on a pre-release OS (Windows 10 preview build 10052)
  • it happened on a pre-release VirtualBox (5.0.0_BETA1 r99371).

On the other hand, I submitted a ticket anyway because:

  • the race is still a bug and can possibly crash the program, it might have been working with a little bit of luck only
  • it seems the relevant VBox code has not been changed for the current beta
  • I hear there was some refactoring done in Windows 10 regarding network adapters, this might show up later for more people

Nice find, this is probably the cause for a number of known issues with VirtualBox 5 (final) and Windows 10 build 10240 (essentially the RTM) in the Docker community.

Specially, this exact error occurs when docker-machine or boot2docker-cli are trying to create their host-only network.

Example issue on docker-machine:  https://github.com/docker/machine/issues/1521

Can we upgrade this ticket a bit? I'm personally waiting for this fix and very hope it will make it into the VirtualBox 5.0.1 release.

comment:2 Changed 21 months ago by ScottRoberts

I am experiencing the same issue. I can get host-only networking going if I manually specify the IP address of the interface in Windows. I have been using Vagrant-generated configs. I'll be trying the process by manually creating a guest in the VirtualBox interface later today.

VirtualBox 5.0 on Win10 release 10240

I would also appreciate escalation, as I think this is going to pop up frequently starting in about a week as the Win10 release rolls out.

comment:3 Changed 21 months ago by ScottRoberts

I should note, this problem exists for versions prior to VirtualBox 5, as well. I tried latest 4.3 version late last week, and also tried 4.3.12, I believe, based on what I'd seen on other threads regarding VirtualBox/Win 10 host-only networking issues.

When setting up a guest, the adapter gets created but the guest process can't access the settings to set the IP address. This is consistent when running VirtualBox as administrator or as a regular user, and whether I start the Vagrant script in an elevated or normal shell.

Please escalate priority for this ticket. The same problem occurs on Windows 10 RTM:

Agreed, please escalate priority for this ticket! Everyone experience problems with this, especially in combination with Vagrant. This issue opened 4 months ago and is still minor, but today Windows 10 rolled out so it should definitely be a major issue imho... :(

comment:6 Changed 20 months ago by nathanleclaire

I can confirm that this issue is happening for me on a version of Windows 10 which I have downloaded today, Virtualbox 5.0.0r101573.

$ /c/Program\ Files/Oracle/VirtualBox/VBoxManage.exe hostonlyif create

Escalating priority on this issue seems apropos as the Windows 10 release is hitting general availability and I know that this issue breaks some functionality on our project (Docker Machine) completely.

Just chiming in here to suggest that getting a VirtualBox build that works on Windows 10 properly should be a priority. There is a large thread here on the vagrant github tracker about this particular error:

Agree with bhouston.

I cant start my (local) websites on which i was working on.

We NEED this update asap! +1

comment:24 Changed 20 months ago by tarruda

Same situation here: Did a fresh windows 10 install and couldn't create the host-only interfaces to run the imported development appliances. Currently blocked on work, it seems I will have to rollback to windows 7 in order to work, though I would like to avoid that route if possible.

If a prebuilt binary with the fix isn't going to be released soon, is it possible to provide an appliance with the software required for building virtualbox? Setting up the development environment manually will take a long time and completely pollute my laptop with software(visual studio, sdks...) I won't use for anything else.

For me, even a workaround to create the interface would be nice. I wonder if there's a debugger I can use to attach and set breakpoint before RegQueryValueExW like Yirkha suggested.

Just wanted to point out that we are aware of this, even if we can't adjust our own priority based on user requests. (Of course if this breaks your professional work flow you should probably be on a support contract. If you have one with Docker or Genymotion you should probably be talking to them.) As always, all user contributions aimed at solving the problem - including workarounds, which often also provide useful information to developers - are welcome, though in this case I think that someone internal is actively working on this.

comment:29 follow-up: ↓ 32 Changed 20 months ago by bogdanus

While someone is working on it can you maybe tell us if there is a quick workaround to create host-only interfaces in VB?

There is a workaround for vagrant -- basically do not use scripting in VirtualBox to setup the network. Do it manually. Details here:  https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant/issues/6059#issuecomment-126655918

The person who opened the issue already posted a small patch with a fix, the problem is that the development environment for building virtualbox is very complicated to setup. Perhaps one of virtualbox windows developers could post a temporary build with the patch applied?

Yirkha also posted a workaround: Place a breakpoint in the RegQueryValueExW system call and wait on it with a debugger(WinDbg?)for a few seconds, which would avoid the race condition. Unfortunately I can't detail the steps to perform this workaround because I'm not a windows developer. I tried attaching to VBoxSVC.exe(while the GUI is running) with WinDbg and setting a breakpoint using bp advapi32!RegQueryValueExW but it didn't work(the breakpoint was never hit).

I think this workaround is only valid if you already had the host-only network created(such as when upgrading from a windows 7/8 installation that had virtualbox configured). Fresh windows 10 installs won't have that option.

comment:35 Changed 20 months ago by tarruda

FWIW I managed to debug VBoxSVC.exe with WinDbg and waited in the debugger to avoid the RegQueryValueExW race condition. As Yirkha suggested, the interface is apparently created(both GUI and VBoxManage report success), but when re-entering the VBox GUI preferences(or VBoxManage list hostonlyifs) the interface is gone. This leads me to believe that the attached patch will not work as expected, so I rolled back my laptop to windows 7.

If this bug is not going to be prioritized anytime soon, then the virtualbox website needs an urgent update to reflect the lack of windows 10 support. In fact, what encouraged me to upgrade to windows 10 was the  the press release paragraph(4th) stating that windows 10 is supported both as host and guest by virtualbox 5.

comment:36 follow-up: ↓ 38 Changed 20 months ago by Yirkha

Hi again,

as said before, all workarounds are welcome, so I made a simple app to fix this and allow people to ruin their weekend working. It's essentially doing the same delay workaround already suggested, but without having to touch a debugger and therefore it might be appealing even to the poor Android and web developers out there :P

Download the attached file VBox-Win10-fix-14040.exe, right click, launch it as administrator and leave it running during the creation of the VM network. Some logs will be created in the same directory during VirtualBox service process activity, which might prove helpful in case there are problems.

With this tool running, I am able to do "VBoxManage hostonlyif create" without problems. The created adapter then appears fine both in "VBoxManage list hostonlyifs" and in the GUI, and I am able to communicate through it sucessfully with a Linux guest (Windows 10 RTM 10240 + all ZDPs, VirtualBox 5.0.0 r101573).

Good luck!

P.S. Never, NEVER execute files from some random guy on the Internet, and especially not elevated!

comment:43 Changed 20 months ago by tarruda

Yirkha, thanks for the fix. Unfortunately for me I already rolled back my installation to windows 7 and can't afford to go through the installation process again anytime soon.

This is off topic but I must say I'm impressed by your debugging skills. It's not easy to spot race conditions like this, I wouldn't even know where to begin. Did you use windbg to break on windows API calls? For me I used process monitor(as per your suggestion) and got the stack trace at the time of the failed RegQueryValueExW call, then I set a breakpoint at the call instruction just before, which allowed me to avoid the race condition(again, just following your instructions) but for some reason it was not enough because the adapter disappeared as soon as I exited the network preferences.

Also, are you a virtualbox developer? If not, how did you manage to build virtualbox so quickly. I mean, did you just happen to have a virtualbox build environment? For me, it seemed very hard to setup a build environment based solely on the information at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Build_instructions. I'm interested in any tips you have for hacking virtualbox in case I need to do so in the future.

One last thing, could you share the source code of the workaround you uploaded? I'm sure it has useful tricks for anyone interested in learning about windows development.

comment:45 Changed 20 months ago by Yirkha

Hi again, I'm glad to see my fix has helped some of you - thank you for your kind words.

@Lubu08: I'm sorry, I can't assist in troubleshooting much. Maybe if you provided an exact list of steps you've taken, uploaded the created log files (if any) to e.g. Pastebin, perhaps tested it also outside of the Xamarin app, ... - but that would be still mostly off topic here. It should be taken as a temporary solution and a proof-of-concept only, I'm sure a proper hotfix will come from the VirtualBox team soon.

@tarruda: Yes, this is also kind of off topic here, so just real quick:

  1. Finding the root cause is described in the ticket description. No magic, just a lot of time spent finding the failing call. VirtualBox being open source helps.
  2. I don't know why the adapter could disappear from the GUI. Some time ago I had to launch it as administrator (it seemed some API needed to be called elevated), but I was able to do everything without these tricks now. Sorry to hear you were close, but had to go through downgrading anyway.
  3. I'm not a VirtualBox developer, I'm not affiliated with Oracle and I did not manage to build VirtualBox (not now, anyway). All what the workaround app does is it registers as a debugger for VBoxSvc.exe and lets the OS trigger it every time a process with that name is started. Then while controlling that process, if the command line is right, there is a RegQueryValueEx() call, for value "NetCfgInstanceId", from VBoxSvc.exe itself, it sleeps for 3 seconds. When you close the app, it unregisters again and everything should be back to normal.
  4. Even if I decided that the world needs to see more hacky code, I currently can't - I left it on my work PC. But the tool does not do anything special really, everything needed is described on the Internet in articles like  How to: Launch the Debugger Automatically and  Writing a basic Windows debugger.

The @Yirkha's workaround actually *has* fixed something (i.e. it no more halts on network interface creation), but there's another bug I think that still causes the whole virtual machine to fail.

A test build is available at https://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/VirtualBox-5.0.1-101902-Win.exe . This should fix the host-only interface creation problem by introducing a 5-second timeout when querying the registry key. We would appreciate feedback (i.e. does it fix the host-only interface creation errors or not, is the timeout long enough).

Please note that since this is a test build, it was not fully tested and might introduce problems unrelated to the issue at hand.

Also please keep in mind that Windows 10 is not a supported host OS for any VirtualBox version at this point. We feel sorry for anyone who got themselves into trouble by upgrading their host OS without thinking, but please understand that paying customers always get priority and fixing public tickets can only be done on a best-effort basis.

"The 5.0 release supports the latest guest or host operating systems including: Mac OS X Yosemite, Windows 10, Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, other Linux operating systems, and legacy operating systems."

Micharln, your build works on my machine where as the previous VB release didn't. Thank you!

It is too bad that the only way to get Commercial support is via contacting Oracle to negotiate a Premium Support contract. Usually independent developers and small companies look for simpler options, such as a price per seat that one can just buy using a credit card.

Thanks michaln. Works flawlessly!

By the way, those users of genymotion, try new release 2.5.3 from genymotion website. If it doesn't helps, try uninstall vbox and genymotion and reinstall it.

comment:60 Changed 20 months ago by daur88

For those who's facing troubles with VirtualBox being unable to find a network adapter during Vagrant boot, try configuring the adapter via standard Windows Network and Sharing Center and commenting out corresponding instructions in your Vagrant config.yaml file.

@michaln thank you! That version has fixed my problems with docker-machine.

comment:62 Changed 20 months ago by michaln

Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, the press release is unfortunately inaccurate; VirtualBox 5.0 will support Windows 10, but 5.0.0 does not (which is why Windows 10 is not listed in the manual).

This is not a place to discuss VirtualBox licensing -- the forum is. At any rate, it's not terribly relevant because it doesn't change the fact that Windows 10 is not an officially supported host OS yet (and that applies to paying customers just the same).

It is unfortunate that Microsoft made Windows 10 available on MSDN only after beginning to offer upgrades to end-users. Users started upgrading before developers had a chance to do anything. In the end, Windows users suffer but again, discussing Microsoft's policies here is pointless.

(50 is ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED, that's very weird.) Anyway, you should avoid the hacks now and rather try out the VirtualBox testbuild provided by the staff - see comment #55 above.

comment:67 Changed 20 months ago by jstangroome

Hi michaln,

Regarding the new 5sec timeout before reading the registry key, is there perhaps a more appropriate mechanism to know when the information required will be available?

I'm not very familiar with this area of the Windows API but perhaps the code could poll SetupDiGetDeviceRegistryProperty for the SPDRP_INSTALL_STATE property and wait until the result is InstallStateInstalled and not InstallStateFinishInstall.

Or maybe call NdisReadConfiguration with the "NetCfgInstanceId" keyword instead of reading the registry key directly?

Just ideas.

Regards,

Jason

comment:68 Changed 20 months ago by michaln

The 5-second timeout was a suggestion from Microsoft. No, it didn't sound terribly robust to me either, but it seems to do the trick.

Just wanted to give some feedback of the test build, I don't really know if this is a weird case or it's happening to anyone else, but I'm getting:

each time I start VM's after I have shutdown my system, running the test build setup and selecting repair seems to fix the problem for that session.

Hope this helps someone.

comment:72 Changed 20 months ago by michaln

Just briefly:

Yes, Kaspersky is known to cause nasty problems, but that's something you need to bring up with them; it's not something we can fix. It's entirely unrelated to this ticket at any rate.

We've seen the "cannot rename this connection" dialogs and they should be harmless, certainly there should be no need for reinstalling. The dialog only shows up when creating 2nd or further interface. It's being worked on. (And that is related to this ticket.)

I was able to workaround by setting the following .exe's to Windows 8 compatibility mode:

  • VBoxManage.exe
  • VBoxHeadless.exe

Doing just Virtualbox.exe as recommended by #comment:54 does not work. With all 3, though, I was able to start up VMs without any issues, or needing to run the fix.exe.

Tried test build ending in 101902 and had success creating the network adapter once, but after deleting all host-only network adapters and trying again, it failed with the familiar error

Code E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Didn't work with test build version 5.0.x revision 101957 for me, either. Hoping there's a more robust fix enroute, since the manual workarounds don't really help when the whole purpose of using Vagrant is to automate everything with scripting.

I just wanted to add that the test build has fixed my issue. I am using virtualbox in combination with vagrant and I then get a warning related to guest additons and shared folders but that is a vagrant issue, not a virtualbox issue at this stage.

The only caveat in this is that I have to run my powershell (and hence vboxmanage and vagrant) with elevated privileges to make it work. That wasn't the case previously.

It is a mild annoyance which hopefully will be fixed with the proper release.

Hi I have applied the Yirkha fix and tried some new test builds like 5.0.1r102010 but unfortunately none of them fixed my problem , still genymotion can not create its infrastructure and problem exist in creating Host Only Networks . When I used Yirkha fix it says that VB created Host Only Adapter but when I close window and reopen it , it has gone .

Is there any hope that we have genymotion and Virtual box working together in Windows 10 ? Working with Google's Virtual Devices is pain in the ... !

Any other workaround would be appreciated !

@michaln: regarding your previous comment: "It is unfortunate that Microsoft made Windows 10 available on MSDN only after beginning to offer upgrades to end-users. Users started upgrading before developers had a chance to do anything."

You may like to know that Windows 10 was made available to developers, etc in advance via  https://insider.windows.com/ instead of MSDN.

I know it is not how Microsoft has historically handled new Windows releases but it would be worth registering if you would like early access to future releases that could impact VirtualBox.

comment:81 Changed 20 months ago by michaln

jstangroome: Sorry to disappoint you but there's no way Oracle developers can sign up for the Insider program as individuals and use it for work. The license that Microsoft forces users to sign is simply not compatible with Oracle's policies (and there's no point arguing about that, so please don't).

So I'll repeat: If it's not on MSDN, we can't use it, and this time Microsoft was way behind with MSDN. Why Microsoft charges thousands of dollars for MSDN licenses and then makes MSDN subscribers wait is not something we can explain. Microsoft simply changed their release process too much and didn't quite think things through.

Too late to discuss this now really, and next time around it will be probably different again anyway.

comment:82 Changed 20 months ago by michaln

Linker: I'm sorry to say that your problem sounds a bit different. I will also point out that Oracle cannot and will not support Genymotion products (the same goes for docker, vagrant, etc.). What that means in practice is that if you complain about Genymotion not working, you more or less guarantee that we will ignore it -- you need to complain to Genymotion instead. But if you take Genymotion out of the picture and explain what it is exactly that's not working with VirtualBox then we're certainly interested.

Notice that this ticket mentions an Android emulator but the bug report is strictly about VirtualBox. That is how it should be.

comment:83 Changed 20 months ago by gregor

I installed the latest test build of VirtualBox (102010) on a fresh installation of Windows 10 final (10.0.10240), but still have issues with it. The creation of host-only adapters works without getting any error messages (even without using Yirkha's workaround utility). I can also confirm that the adapters are getting created and appear in Device Manager. Unfortunately, after closing the preferences dialog and reopening it, all host-only adapters are gone. I am also not able to assign host-only adapters to any VM as the Network Adapter "Name" drop down in the VM's settings dialog is empty. Starting VirtualBox with elevated privileges or in compatibility mode does not help either.

comment:85 Changed 20 months ago by kouik

There are some strange things i've noticed since i've update to windows 10.

When I do the vagrant up, Vagrant stop on the step ==> default: Clearing any previously set network interfaces... and a window pop-up from Windows saying that the connection cannot be renamed, and i can only click OK. The related informations about this generic Windows message is the following :  https://support.microsoft.com/en-en/kb/269155

So, i suspect the windows update to have forgot some informations about the network card in my registery. On each vagrant up, I can see in my devices manager a new network device created, but the strange thing is that if I uninstall all of them, then run a vagrant up again, the name of the device created will be VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter #4.

Why do the first adapter created always start by #4 ?

Another strange thing i've notice : Let's admit i've just uninstalled all the VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapters in devices manager. In VirtualBox, i right click the box that couldn't properly start, then settings, then network, then bridge access in the first dropdown, then i open the second dropdown, and this is what i see listed there :

  • Intel(R) Internet Connection (2) I212-V
  • VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter #3
  • Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter
  • VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter #2
  • VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter

Wow !? Is this normal ? I can't see any #0, #1, #2 or #3 in devices manager, devices manager create items starting by #4, and virtual box list thoses ones. Wtf ...

Any idea guys ?

comment:86 Changed 20 months ago by kouik

I have changed the IP of my vagrant project because i suspect to be attached to a ghost card stored somewhere on my computer, and is blocking the creation of the network card with the given IP because it is yet exist.

Changed

config.vm.network :private_network, ip: "192.168.50.4"

To

config.vm.network :private_network, ip: "192.168.56.4"

in my Vagrantfile.

Now the VM boots as expected.

Any idea on how to clean the ghost network cards number 0 to 3 on my computer ? Thanks a lot.

Another strange debugging attempt :

Running Windows 10 Home, VirtualBox 5.0.1, Vagrant 1.7.4 and i'm trying to vagrant up a project based on VVV (a vagrant box and toolset).

  • Rebooted
  • Removed any VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter in devices managers
  • Added Windows 7 compatibility mode to Virtualbox.exe, VBoxManage.exe, VBoxHeadless.exe, and UAC rights to vbox.

Guys,

It really looks like a Firewall issue. Now that i have successfully started my VM once, i don't get errors anymore, and my VM get successfully booted.

I think that something on Windows, like a Windows firewall is blocking VirtualBox from loading some files but create some exception rules to allow it to be accessed, but this take to much time to do, and VB crash without waiting enough longer for the rule to be created. So, if we restart again with a vgrant up, we will crash again facing a new blocking file.

SOLUTION : Just be rudest than VirtualBox, and simply execute vagrant up until it works !

Addition : Don't use VirtualBox 5.0.0 or 5.0.1 with Windows 10. Even if you can pass the first issue, you will then notice than symlinks on the VM do not work with this VB version. Check that issue for more informations : https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/14434

So, i rolled back to Virtual 4.3.30, ran vagrant up 4 times again, and my VM successfully booted again. I can now reboot and use the VM with one single vagrant up, i get no more errors messages, and symlinks on the VM are properly working.

What a headache...

I can't confirm that this is fixed with version 5.0.2-102096 and Windows 10.0.10240 (final). Although I am able to create host-only adapters in the preference section without errors, but they all disappear when reopening preferences. None of the adapters can be assigned to a VM, as they do not appear in the adapter drop-down list (see screenshot https://www.virtualbox.org/attachment/ticket/14040/vbox5-win10-cant-assign-adapters.png). I can see the adapters in Windows device manager though.

Gregor: Your problem is clearly different and either completely unrelated to this ticket (unable to create host-only adapters) or at best very tangentially related. Please create a separate ticket.

As it is, you're only spamming lots of users who had trouble with host-only adapter creation but don't have problems now. By mixing separate issues, you are also making problems harder, not easier, to fix.

You can either change the machine's network settings or stop the machine.

& are still unable to start the Debian VM & the Windows 8 VM. I tried the newest version for download on your site, which is 5.0.4. The error message reads

Nonexistent host networking interface, name 'VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter' (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR).


Result Code: 
E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: 
ConsoleWrap
Interface: 
IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

Deactivating the adaptors does not solve the problem.

When I select an "Heedless" or a "Detachable" start, the progress bar goes to 100%, ending with the same error message (E_FAIL (0x80004005)) at the end.

There is good news for Windows 10 users, however, as VMBox 4.3.30 runs without problems!

Creating process for virtual machine message

Hi,

I still got the problem. When I try to install the vbox 5.0.10 on windows 10 I got this

pdateHostOnlyInterfaces: VBoxNetCfgWinUpdateHostOnlyNetworkInterface failed, hr = 0xe000020b
CreateHostOnlyInterface: calling VBoxNetCfgWinCreateHostOnlyNetworkInterface
Querying NetCfgInstanceId failed (0x00000000)
CreateHostOnlyInterface: VBoxNetCfgWinCreateHostOnlyNetworkInterface returns 0x80004005
CreateHostOnlyInterface: VBoxNetCfgWinCreateHostOnlyNetworkInterface failed, error = 0x80004005
CreateHostOnlyInterface: Almost done...
CreateHostOnlyInterface: Returns success (ignoring all failures)

I've looked in the registry and the Key NetCfgInstanceId exists in all network interfaces.

The error seems to be where the patch has been done but is not working yet.

Best regards

Hi,

Sorry guys i've found the problem. The Kaspersky Internet Security was the cause of the problem. I had to uninstall it, install virtualbox and then install again KIS.

Now all is working great. You can close this ticket!

Best regards

Hi,

I found a solution preventing you to uninstall Kaspersky.

You have to install manually the VirtualBox Network drivers. You can found those drivers here :

C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\drivers\network

There is two folders, go inside both of them and right click install on the *.inf files.

Now the installation of hosts only virtual networks adapters should be nice but don't boot up. You have to manually install a new service on your "VirtualBox Host-Only Network" adapter.

  • go to the network adapters list
  • right click on this network adapter choose "Properties"
  • click on the "Install..." button and add a service
  • choose The Manufacturer "Oracle Corporation" and the network service named "VirtualBox NDIS6 Bridged Networking driver".
  • Validate all the windows, and all should be OK.

Sincerly,
