VirtualBox Bridged Networking Service Is not installed with Virtual Box 4.1.6

Reported by: fquintero Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.6 Keywords: bridged, network adapter
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


I installed VB 4.1.6. Apparently it install fine. I then created a new virtual machine. I changed the networking settings to use "Bridged Adapter" in the Attached To list. However the Name list is empty. The dialog would not save the configuration because "Invalid settings detected". Same thing with earlier version of Virtual Box. The "VirtualBox Host-Only Network" is fine, but the bridged network adapter was not installed.

Please uninstall VBox and run the installer with MSI & Setup API loging enabled, and attach MSI & Setup API logs here.

I'm having the same problem as described above. I've attached the driver logs. I was not able to get any MSI/setup logs, either by running the installer with -l or by modifying the registry.

I have upgrade my host machine windows 8 to 10, I face the problem with connecting network with Bridge Adapter, there is not any name display in Dropdown.

I have checked Virtual box host properties, over there Virtual Box Networking Driver.
