VBox error Win10 b14251 - VERR_SUP_VP_TOO_MANY_IMAGE_REGIONS

Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Build 14251.
However, I can't get VirtualBox to work properly with it.

Using VirtualBox (v4.3.36 r105129, or v5.0.15 r105205), on Windows 10 Pro x64 Insider Preview Build 14251:
When I try to start one of my Debian x64 VMs, I get the following error:
supHardenedWinVerifyProcess failed with Unknown Status -5644 (0xffffe9f4): Too many regions for VirtualBox.exe.
Error -5644 in supR3HardNtChildPurify! (enmWhat=5)


Below are images and text blocks of the error, as shown by the UI, as well as the .log file. I've confirmed the error for both 4.3.x and 5.x, but I ultimately need 4.3.x to be working for my purposes (long-running BOINC VM tasks using VBoxWrappers that did not support VBox v5 API changes).

Can you please see what's going on here, and look into fixing it so both v5.x and v4.3.x work again, as time permits?

Thank you kindly,
Jacob Klein

================================================================
PS: I understand that it'd be low-priority (since it's an Insider build). I wanted to report the error the best I can, so you have the info you need to get it fixed, and so the community can track the issue. My workaround will be to run BOINC on my "Win 10 Release" partition instead of my "Win 10 Insider" partition, until you can get this fixed.

I don't know if you're aware of this or not: VirtualBox 4.3 is no longer supported as of January 1, 2016. That does not mean there definitely won't be any fixes but it does mean you can't count on there being any. Running an unsupported version of VirtualBox on an unstable OS is a bad combination. VirtualBox 5.0 is a different story.

We can't stop Microsoft from breaking existing software. If you don't like it, please do tell Microsoft, they're the ones making the decisions.

Thank you for the reminder.

I have reported the problem to both parties -- You guys (which have the VBox hardening code that isn't working on the new Insider Build), and Microsoft (which changed something that doesn't jive with the VBox hardening code).

My goal with this post, is to post as much useful information about the problem, in hopes that it becomes easier to fix, if it is something that Oracle decides to fix. It also helps the community to track the problem, isolate causes, and determine any workarounds.

Thanks,
Jacob

I'm having the same issue with Build 14251 !

We appreciate that! All I was saying is that VirtualBox 5.0 will be made to work one way or another, but it would be unwise to assume that 4.3 will be as well.

I was not having this issue on Windows build 11102 (with VirtualBox 5.0.12 or 5.0.14), but as soon as I installed build 14251 (running VirtualBox 5.0.14r105127) this started happening. I made the same post in another thread (which I can't paste the link to because I'm a new member, maybe tomorrow!) but this thread seems more specifically related to me so I'm re-posting, sorta, in the hopes that it makes the issue easier to track. I'm happy to try workarounds, or gather additional data, if that's helpful.

Exact same problem here. I've upvoted the insider feedback posted above and also sent them a recording to show the problem. Hoping to see this resolved quickly, I use my Linux VM for data recovery on hard drives and I hate being without it.

Hey michaln:

Quick question: Where did you find that 4.3.x is no-longer supported?
I found this page, which only says that 4.2.x and older aren't supported.
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds

So, can you enlighten me?

Thanks,
Jacob

Taking the liberty here, but the way I understand it, no-longer supported <> fixes-backported.

That doesn't quite answer my question.
I'm hoping michaln can answer it, to help clear confusion.

michaln doesn't have to "find" it. He is an Oracle employee so it's safe to assume he knows what he is talking about without seeing it printed on a web page.

As a general rule, developers, project managers, management, etc. don't have to search the web to find out what they are up to.

Yeah, but he hinted that I should have already known about it! Especially since the date given, is in the past already! :)

All I had to go on was:
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Download_Old_Builds

Regarding "VirtualBox 4.3 is no longer supported as of January 1, 2016"....
If it is public knowledge, then I'd like to know where I should have seen it from -- where I may have missed it.
If it is not public knowledge, then I'd like to at least know that the page I referenced is incorrect.

Sorry that I missed something. Just trying to figure out what I missed.

As a guess I would say he didn't know if it was announced or not.
