I am using Windows 10 Pro.Before update Windows 10 it's virtual device start's successfully. But when i update windows it's not running. I try everything. uninstall reinstall VB. But it's not working. Please someone helps


I had exactly the same problem as you, tried everything, but the solution is really easy:

  1. Open network center
  2. Change adapter settings
  3. Right click your Virtualbox host-only adapter and select Properties
  4. Enable "Virtualbox NDIS6 Bridget Networking Driver" (if it's disabled - if it's not, see next)

If the checkbox in step 4 was disabled, VB should work just fine now (no reboot needed). Otherwise repeat steps 3-4 for every network adapter you have (Ethernet, WiFi...) and always uncheck the NDIS6 checkbox -> apply -> check it again -> apply.

Hope this helps - worked for me on 2 different machines (it seems that this is caused by last Windows 10 update - thanks Microsoft for wasting another 4 hours of my life).

    Thanks bro...but i uninstall windows updates after that i am getting this error. I created another host-only adapter after restart it's successfully running. – viratpuar Nov 18 '15 at 12:36
  • Thank you for saving (at least!) 4 hours of my life! The same Windows update had been in a failed-install state for a couple months, and when I finally fixed that sufficient for it to finish installing I was rewarded with this error. ;) – pztrick Jan 14 '16 at 23:47
  • Thank you very much. Same problem here but linked to Vagrant not being able to pull up any VM anymore. Solved as you described :) – Stefano Fratini Jan 21 '16 at 5:14
  • Absolutely incorrect answer cannot believe this is being suggested! The HOST-ONLY adapters (Virtualbox/VMware) DO NOT BRIDGE anything - they are HOST ONLY! Enabling BRIDGING on them is incorrect. Don't believe me? Install VMware and look at it's adapters the BRIDGING adapter DOES need it enabled - the HOST ONLY does not and should not. If you need it - you have something mis-configured. – Collin Chaffin May 15 '18 at 16:55
  • @CollinChaffin Easy, pal. It has obviously worked for 20+ people. I don't care if it's not the "proper" way to fix the error - it's one of the easiest and fastest. You can provide a better one. I believe this is only a matter of terminology; yes, the adapter (and connection) is host only, but the VB driver is still called "Bridget Networking Driver", no matter what. But feel free to reach out anytime with another clever note. – mxmx Sep 9 '18 at 13:42
