VM stuck on accessing parallel port

Good. Are you able to share the printer onto the network? yes

And we still need to know the "ipconfig /all" from the VM. yes

Kann die VM nicht starten, bekomme die Fehlermeldung wie beschrieben.

Ah, I understand, I'm sorry! The VM cannot start.

If you are still getting this error:
HostParallel#0: Could not get direct access to the host parallel port!! (rc=VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR_3) (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR_3).
Parallel device 0 cannot attach to host driver (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR_3).

Then the other VM "DOS-PC" is probably still controlling the parallel port. Is "DOS-PC" running now?

Unfortunately, the information is getting confusing. Do you have a VM called "DOS-PC"? Where did these commands come from?

The error appears to be coming from the Parallel port being wrongly configured or in use by another VM or the host OS.

My suggestion is to not send the printer into the VM through the parallel port. Instead, share the printer from the host OS.

Please post the .vbox file again. The earlier .vbox file did not have any parallel port entries, that I was able to see.

Thanks, that was the vbox.log file. Please send the .vbox file, like you did in the second attachment "FlowFact.zip" here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=86057&p=497866#p497807

Thanks. This .vbox file contains these lines defining the LPT port:
<LPT>
<Port slot="0" enabled="true" IOBase="0x378" IRQ="7" path="LPT1:"/>
</LPT>

I have removed these lines, so the VM should not look for the parallel port anymore. Hopefully this will get the VM running again.

Reboot the host PC so no Virtualbox processes are running.
Rename the existing "FlowFact.vbox" to "FlowFact.vbox-lpt"
Unzip the below "FlowFact.vbox" and put it in the FlowFact folder next to "FlowFact.vbox-lpt"

Your VM should now start up and not look for the LPT port anymore. You should then be able to get the VM's "ipconfig /all".

BTW, I was wrong earlier when I said the first .vbox didn't have the LPT instructions. They were there, I didn't notice them before. Sorry!

I am afraid I am stumped, then. I don't know what is wrong.

We'll need a forum guru to look more into this. I will move this to Windows Hosts, to get more views.
