Starting 2nd instance takes too much time

Reported by: nim Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 5.0.12
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows


Starting VB for the first time usually takes only less than 1 second on my computer (Windows 10 with SSD drive). But starting the 2nd instance would always take almost 5 seconds or more. That is not normal.

BTW, this problem has been there for years since I started using VB of 3.x.

I want to add that this happens only when there are no VMs running except the main GUI instance. Hope I made the problem clear.

Very hard to reply anything without more information. I would at least expect the VBox.log files of the two VM sessions you are trying to start. It might be a resource problem (CPU and/or RAM): When you start your second VM then the first VM already occupies CPU/RAM which might influence the second VM.

It's not related to VM sessions. I think you guys can try it yourself. Just try to launch VB GUI 2 times from Start Menu shortcut.

Right, if VirtualBox.exe is already running then starting the second instance of it takes ~10 seconds. Thanks.
