Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

All release versions of Vbox break the WLM Video/Audio chat when the VirtualBox Host-Only Network adapter is enabled and this has been an issue since Nov of last year according to posts at ... 12192.html

with the Host-only network adapter enabled you will always get Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8100039d) or another similar message.

Disabling the adapter brings back normal usage (after a restart of WLM).

Can not reproduce it here, both Video & Audio calls work ok on Vista & XP with the latest WLM for me. What host Windows OS version are you running? Could you also ensure the VBox Host-only network connection has the lowest priority (i.e. lesser than the one(s) used for your phisical NIC(s)). To do this in the "Network Connections" window go to "Advanced->Advanced settings" menu (on Vista press "Alt" to make menu visible), and make sure the "Host-Only.." connection is located at the bottom in the "Connections" list on "Adapters And Bindings" tab of "Advanced Settings" dialog.

7 x64, latest wlm, it does have the lowest priority and the connected adapter is a WLAN, with manually set ip/dns

others have had this issue as well
