On Windows 8 x64, after the Windows Update KB3045999 (04/15/2015), VM fails to start with error message : NtCreateFile(\Device\VBoxDrvStub).

Removing this update resolves the problem.

same behavior. Thanks for pointing to the KB!

Please could you try the latest Windows test build? It contains a fix which should allow you to install KB3045999 (which is highly recommended by Microsoft as it contains important security fixes). Thank you!

I tested with VirtualBox-4.3.27-100091-Win. And it seems work. One concern. The installation noted that some dll should be closed for installing, so I closed chrome.
