Windows 10 virtual machine crashes on watching a flash video with the Internet Explorer 11

Reported by: Sworddragon Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 5.0.14
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


On a 64 bit Windows 10 guest if I'm watching a video with the Flash Player the virtual machine crashes by opening the "VirtualBox - Guru Meditation" window and saying that a critical error appeared (sometimes the virtual machine will just freeze instead).

For example this can be reproduced by adding to the compatibility list of the Internet Explorer and then visiting The advertisement that will automatically start playing after a few seconds (by choosing the Flash Player because of the compatibility setting) does crash the virtual machine.

2D and 3D hardware acceleration is disabled and the guest additions are installed. The issue does not appear on other browsers like Microsoft Edge if they are playing a flash video.

Your guest triple faults. This could be a bug in VirtualBox but this could be also a bug in your guest system. No immediate idea.

Should be finally fixed in the most recent builds. Could you confirm that the most recent Linux test build works for you? The next 5.0.x maintenance release will contain the fix.

On testing this with VirtualBox 5.0.16 the crash does not appear anymore.
