VirtualBox 5.0 not working on windows server core

Reported by: zarzarel Owned by:

Guest type: all Host type: Windows



VirtualBox version 5.0 does not run on Windows server core, failing with VERR_MODULE_NOT_FOUND when starting VBoxHeadless.exe. The faulting module is VBoxDD.dll which tries to import dsound.dll which is not available on Windows Server Core installations. Providing a dsound.dll from a full windows installation fails from hardening checks (dsound.dll is not signed). Changing sound driver to none or null has no effect.
