Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Problem: When accidentally or purposely deleting the installation folder the Repair operation of the installer does not setup the networking devices again.

Action leading to error:

  • Deleted the folder "%PROGRAMFILES%\Sun VirtualBox"
  • Select 'Repair' operation
  • Reboot host computer
  • Start virtual machine

A popup should occur telling that the 'VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter' could not be created.

Beside that in the Control Panel there are no Virtual Box network interfaces listed.


Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3

VirtualBox 3.1.2

OpenSuse Linux 10 as virtual machine.
