Error Launching Virtual Machine

Postby nickname1234 » 27. Oct 2021, 21:48

Hello, it seems that either a Windows Security update or new VBOX version has caused an error. We cannot get any VM to power on anymore. We are using Windows 10 H121 with latest patches. Here are the errors. We have uninstalled/re-installed multiple times via directions on other posts in this forum. I have tried the previous version and the latest beta version and the same issues. I tried installed the Windows Update Preview patches to see if maybe that would fix too but it didn't. We use secure boot, Windows Defender and Crowdstrike and they cannot be disabled. Our dev teams suspect the lastest Windows 10 patches are the cause because it was working fine until recently. I even tried not installing under program files just to test.

Any ideas? Thanks!!

**for others having a similar issue I was able to get version 6.1.22 working after deleting the two virtualbox folders listed under my profile C:\Users\Username the folders are called .Virtualbox and Virtualbox VMs. Not sure if any settings or VM's need to be moved before deleting.**

I'm having the same issue. However, I am only having this on version 6.1.28, going back to 6.1.26 solved the issue.
