Ticket #15872 (closed defect: fixed)
LPT, Cannot attach to host driver (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR_3)
|Reported by:||Electron-John||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 5.1.4||Keywords:||LPT VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR_3 parallel (0x80004005)|
Summary: I am setting up a virtual box (ver. 5.1.4r110228 (Qt5.5.1) ) to run older, expensive software on a virtual Windows 2000 machine. There is a physical parallel port dongle that is needed. I have found and followed the tutorial on setting up the port (Enabling and Configuring Parallel (LPTx) Ports). I get an error that looks internal to Virtual Box. The virtual machine will not even continue past the error.
What I have done after the error:
1) Researched the forums:
A) Found several posts about parallel ports but none addressed the internal error I was getting. Nevertheless I tried some of the suggestions to no avail. Ultimately, my most reliable forum post was the tutorial.
B) Found a stale ticket (4279 - now obsolete) that ultimately was no use.
2) Posted in VitualBox on Windows Hosts, titled "parallel device 0 cannot attach to host driver" by Electron-John, 27, Aug 2016, 23:26.
A) That post has all the details, and both the log file and hardening log file. (Copies attached to this ticket.)
3) I have found the following on Microsoft's developer pages:
B) If the link doesn't work or is blocked, try web searching "features of system-supplied drivers" and look for a microsoft link that has "ff543952" in it. This is current as of 31, Aug. 2016)
C) I am not experienced enough to figure out, on 64 bit Windows hosts, if VirtualBox needs to supply a vendor-supplied parallel port driver. I do not fully comprehend what the workaround is for 64 bit Windows hosts.
At this point I do not know how to resolve the internal error.
I have attached the log files and a copy of the original post.
Thank you in advance.
