Some sort of .net based failure

Reported by: k-bl Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.1.4 Keywords: .net
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

The microsoft .net frame work fails when I go to import a license key for this accounting software that we use. The software's name is SageMaster Builder. I've tested the software of both windows xp & sbs 2003, both with .net 1.1 2.0 3.0 & 3.5 installed and fully patched.

I've spend hours on the phone with Sage and they say that the root is VirtualBox. I've used reflector to peak at the code, but I can't seem to find the class. The error details are found in the attached files.

Is there anything else that I need to do? This is my first time submitting a ticket. I'm a developer, just not familiar with the framework that virtualbox uses...

Could you properly enable VT-x in your computer's BIOS and try again? It could be that the piracy prevention mechanism in the application tries to determine if you're using a debugger. This will fail with software virtualization, but works with VT-x.

I had it enabled, I added nested mode and I received the same issue. Is it possible that there is something else linked to VT-x that needs to be enabled as well? What other things should I try?

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by sandervl73

Your BIOS didn't enable VT-x properly, so VirtualBox can't use it. You should check your BIOS settings and if that doesn't help, try to find an update.

How do you know that it failed? Are you referring to the virtual system's bios or the server? How should I detect if it failed?

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by sandervl73

I'm referring to your host (non-virtual/real) system. I can tell, because of the log file entries related to VT-x. You can check yourself by hovering the mouse pointer over the 'V' status icon in the VM window or by checking the VM information dialog.

What do you think the setting would be called in the server's bois? It's a newer dell server, quad core xeon based. I'm not in front of the system but will check on that as soon as I am.
